FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there time limits for the events?

Firstly, we encourage runners of all abilities for this event. We need to have time limits for a few reasons. We coordinate with the Town of Paradise to place cones and marshals at key locations on the course. As residents of the area can't be expected to be locked in, we need to have a sensible window to hold the event, with minimal interruption as possible. Secondly, and especially important for 2021, we are holding two events in one morning. As the Challenge participants are running twice, we need to separate the events but still use common chip timing systems. This means we need to target a reasonable 45min time for the 5km (this equates to a running pace of 9min/km which is normally achievable for past race participants). Anyone completing the 5km event in more than 45 minutes may not receive a finishing time (but we'll be sure to get you a medal), and may not be able to complete the Challenge event if you registered to do so. 

Do you permit walkers?

Please see the time limit question above. As this is a running focused event with some logistical time limits, we're not encouraging walkers, we're afraid.  

Why is there limited numbers of registrations?

Limited participation due to the finisher medals we have for participants. Our limits are based on expected numbers from previous years, and these custom medals need to be ordered well in advance. 

Is there a different Finisher medal for the Five and Dime?

No, not this year. It is a combined medal due to the logsitics & costs of ordering medals. Participants overwhelmingly seem to want medals, but we didn't add to add the individual category restrictions as well. FINISHERS of the Banished Brewing Challenge will receive a Banished Brewing beer glass with their medal. 

Can I register and just run it without having to get a medal? This would avoid your limited numbers problem above.

No can do. It would be a nightmare trying to determine at the end who gets a medal and who don't. Plus, medal envy is a real thing and we don't want that at our event. 

Can I get a medal if I register and don't run the race?

Sorry, they are finisher medals for the in-person event. The goal is to see runners out racing on the course challenging and supporting each other.

Can I get a refund or transfer my registration?

No. Yeah, that seems a bit harsh, we know (maybe the underline emphasis was a bit much). The reasons are the complexities that come with sending money back to people (our Treasurer is a volunteer too!) and even more important, the acknowledgement of the important waivers you all read very carefully and accepted when you registered on Trackie. That's not legally transferrable to another person unless they register themselves.  That's especially true for minors, so we need to be certain as you may appreciate.  So, please, don't ask and make this awkward. 

What do you do with the race fees, anyways?

We use it mostly to pay for the costs of a race, especially medals, drinks, food, etc.  In fact, we aim for "break even" as our pricing strategy.  As a not-for-profit organization entirely run by volunteers, PRC donate regularly to local charities and we only carry a reasonable operating balance to manage the club.

Who can I contact if I have further questions, or special requirements?

Your friendly neighbourhood Race Director, that's who. Simply email Kiley using and he'll get back to you ASAP. He's a volunteer and has a day job, so please be patient and we'll aim to answer your questions as soon as we can.
