Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get a refund if the weather doesn’t cooperate?

ALL ENTRIES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE EVEN IN THE CASE OF BAD WEATHER.

 

We make every effort to ensure that the weather does not thwart our fun and we’ll stay in touch with you about any curve balls mother nature throws our way.

 

February 10 is the backup date in the event we have to postpone our in-person race due to inclement weather. We understand not everyone will be able to make the back-up date, and can offer a transfer to another participant for no charge. Thank you for your understanding.

Is there a virtual race option this year?

No, Beat The Cold is only in-person for 2024. We hope you can join us! ​

How does fundraising work? 

Create an online pledge page individually or as a team at the bottom of the registration page. Share this page to family, friends, coworkers or anyone you want to encourage to donate to the cause.

​We have rad prizes for the top fundraisers.

How do I get my race kit?

There are two days for you to pick up your race kits. Please have your confirmation email handy. You may pick up a friend’s race kit by getting them to forward you their confirmation email. Only one team member has to come for relay teams, just make sure that person has the team confirmation email.
