Registration FAQ's

I can't run the race anymore. Can I get a refund or transfer my registration to a friend?
All registrations for the Flannel 5K are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please know your race fee is going towards an amazing cause, The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Thank you for your contribution! 

Do you allow walkers?
This is a race, not a run/walk and due to course restrictions, we cannot allow participants to register with the intention of walking the whole course. Runners should plan to keep a 15 minute mile pace or faster. Course will close at 9:50am. 

I don't have a credit card. Can I send a check and a paper registration form?
Sorry, but we've gone completely digital and the only way to register in advance is on our website. Registration on the day of the event, if available, will be $45 and can be paid by check, cash or credit card.

Will there be registration on race day?
No, this year we sold out and do not have any spaces for day-of registrants. We do have a virtual option available for those participants! 

Can I register a team?
Yes!  A team can consist of 4 or more runners. More instructions can be found on the team registration page.

Is there a way to make an additional donation to the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center?
Yes! Please help us raise even more money for patient services and cancer research. Heck, if you are feeling really ambitious, ask your friends and family to chip in too! Find out more about donating to the cause here.

Is fundraising required to participate in this race?
No, but we certainly encourage it! Start a fundraising page here!


Race Day FAQ's

Can I run with my dog? Are baby strollers/joggers allowed?
The Harpoon Flannel 5K is USA Track and Field sanctioned, so we have to play by their rules. That means you'll have to brave the 3.2 miles solo-- no furry friends or little ones.

Can I bring my dog to the post-race party? 
Yes! Your furry friend is more than welcome at the post race party. We just ask that all dogs be kept on a leash and are well behaved. Harpoon reserves the right at any time to ask that a dog and its owner leave the event if the dog is not leashed, cleaned up after, or is misbehaving in our opinion. No refunds will be issued if a dog owner and dog are expelled. *Do NOT leave your dog in the car while you run!*

Do you allow walkers?
No. Due to the heavy traffic on the race course, we cannot keep the course open longer than necessary and are unable to accommodate walkers.  Thank you for respecting our community and the race rules!

Is Parking available on race day?
Parking is available on site at the Harpoon Brewery, Windsor, VT. Note, our site is very busy with other businesses in Artisans Park and you may have to walk/run up to .3 miles from your car to the start/finish line. Please plan accordingly and arrive early!

When is the rain date?
No rain date. The Harpoon Flannel 5K is rain or shine.

What should I bring with me on race day?
Please bring a photo ID. All runners must be over 21. After you have checked in and before the race you will need to go to the Wristband/ID Station inside the event space to get a wristband for the post-race party. If you do not have a wristband, you will not be served. Wristband + ticket = Beer.

How do I get my beer tickets on race day?
Your beer tickets and food ticket are attached to your bib #.  Tear them off when appropriate, but don’t lose them!

Where can I leave my bag during the race?
We will provide a bag drop area, but it will not be as secure as a traditional bag check. It's a good place to store a small bag with a fresh t-shirt, but please do not leave your valuables.

Can my non-running friend/family member hang out at the post-race party with me?
Yes, your supporters can definitely join you for the post-race party until 11:00am! After that, The Harpoon Riverbend Taps and Beer Garden is hosting the Harpoon BBQ Fest, learn more and grab some tickets here

Can I pick up my bib before the race?
Packet pickup opens at 7:30 AM on Race Day: Sunday, September 12, 2021.
