Cancellation Policy

Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. No Exceptions. Once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate, you may not give or sell your number to anyone else, and you may not transfer your 2017 entry fee to a future race.

General Event Rules:
  • Pin your bib on the front of your body (shirt, shorts). Your race bib serves two purposes:
    • Volunteers/marshals/police can identify you as a participant in the race.
    • The timing chips are located on the back of your bib. Wear the bib on the front of your body, obscured by clothing, race belts, etc.
  • Run or walk the division for which you are registered in order to receive an official time and be eligible for awards.  If you need to change divisions, e-mail us by Sunday, May 14.  Only change request submitted in writing will be honored.
  • Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, 18 years or older, for the duration of the race.
  • Any type of animal is not permitted, except for service dogs.
  • We allow athletes to run with a stroller in the 5K and 10K, but you must start in the back. If starting in the back doesn’t work for you, we do not suggest running with a stroller.  This is for your safety, your child’s safety and the safety of the other entrants. Walking strollers should start in the back with the walkers.
  • Early or late starts are not allowed. Starting late becomes a problem because the police and volunteers may no longer be in position to keep you safe and appropriately directed.
  • Unregistered runners and walkers are not allowed on the course.
  • No bikes, scooters, roller blades, roller skates, scoot bikes, hula hoops, skateboards, and hoover boards are permitted. Do not bring items which may compromise your safety or the safety of those around you while running/walking with a large number of people. Wheelchairs and strollers are the only “wheels” allowed on the course.
  • Costumes are allowed (and fun!) as long as they follow all other safety and course rules.
  • Please dispose of all garbage at aid stations.
  • Headphones/music are allowed on the route. Please be smart and keep the volume low, or use one earbud only, during the race. This allows you to hear oncoming athletes, lead bikes warnings (who may be approaching from behind), cyclists, emergency vehicles, direction from volunteers or police and other noises around you that help keep you safe and traveling along the correct race course.
  • Do not run or walk more than two abreast. Run or walk on the right, pass on the left. Remember, there are times at which the routes merge and athletes may be approaching you from behind with greater speed than you are traveling.  Please be courteous and leave room for them to pass.
Things to know:
  • Participants must be responsible for their personal items on race day.  There will not be a designated location provided to store walkers/runners items.
  • Schedule is subject to change.  The Davis Pride planning committee will give as much advance notice as possible.
  • Runners and walkers are also invited to stay for the community festival that will follow the event and feature an interactive play area for children and their families; a pet-zone; live music and entertainment, and food and refreshments.
