As many of you know, it takes a village of volunteers to help with a race and even more importantly a half marathon. This year, with the new course and town, we would love to have as many volunteers out on the course and helping at the start/finish line as possible. We also give community service or volunteer hours! Click the link below to sign up!

We understand that volunteering can be difficult if you do not understand what your are needed for or what we expect. We have decided it would be helpful to have a volunteer meeting to discuss packet pickup and race day responsibilities. Light refreshments will provided as well. Tuesday, October 27 at 5:30 p.m. This is very important and we highly encourage all volunteers to take the time to come join us for this.

Special ‘THANK YOU’ to our sponsors!


The Goose Chase has a no refund policy due to the pre-ordering of event shirts, medals, bibs, etc. We understand that emergencies or last minute schedule changes do occur, therefore, to better accommodate you, we have some other options instead.

  • You can transfer your entry to someone else
  • You can switch to the virtual option and turn in your virtual race time at a later time, and still receive the shirt and medal.
  • You can defer to the next year

If none of these options work for you and a refund is still needed, there will be a $10 service charge through September 30th and we are not responsible for the online registration fee. After October 1st, there will not be any refunds. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@thegoosechase.org
