ATTENTION! 

Please read the following information regarding race day. 

Due to Covid-19, we are staging the start of the race for social distancing. We will have wave starts to help break up the crowd of participants at the start line. Even with the efforts on our end, we ask that you do your part as well to help us maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe. We encourage you to wear your mask before and after the race but it is not required while running. Relay teams: please wear masks on the shuttle buses. We ask that you use the hand sanitizer provided for you at various locations throughout the event area. Please take your temperature prior to coming to the event. If you have a high temperature, showing any signs or symptoms of sickness of any kind, PLEASE STAY HOME. We would be happy to switch your registration to virtual and you can still receive your t-shirt and medal. We want to continue to have in-person races but YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! Please help us with these simple steps of safety.

Thank you for your cooperation during these times.

Volunteers

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. 

COSTUME CONTEST

We LOVE to have fun and the costume contest is such an easy way to enjoy this event! Get dressed up in your Halloween costumes and join us for this contest! Funny, scary, DIY, bought, simple, extravagant…whatever you choose, come join us for the costume contest before the Half Marathon start. Anyone wanting to enter the contest will need to be at the start/finish line by 8 a.m. so that we can have our judges decide who will be the 2021 Haunted Half Marathon Costume Winner!

REFUND POLICY

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
