Are kids strollers allowed?
Not all Fit & Able events are suitable for parents to push their young children in strollers. This may be due to the course terrain or other safety reasons. All events that allow kids in strollers will clearly indicate that.
Parents may not push children 5 years or older in a stroller. All children in a stroller, regardless of age, must be registered using the “Kids 5 & Under” registration option using their own name and birthday (not a parent’s!). We need to know who is on the course and have a signed waiver for them. These children will receive a number at packet pickup after parents have signed a waiver for the child. Children in strollers who do not have a number will not be allowed on the course.
Is this course wheelchair friendly?
Although Fit & Able strives to produce events that are all-inclusive for participants of any age, skill level, or ability, not all events are suitable for people in wheelchairs or requiring other mobility aids. This may be due to the course terrain or other safety reasons.
Fit & Able uses both public and private venues to host events and has limited to no ability to modify these venues to accommodate participants with different mobility needs.
Are dogs allowed to run with owners?
Dogs are not allowed to participate with owners in most races unless otherwise stated on an event’s information page. Service and support dogs are allowed but owners must have proper documentation with them.
Will this be a timed race?
All Fit & Able events are chip timed.
Where can I find the results?
Results will be available in multiple places:
- Preliminary results will be posted live on the race site during the event. Just go to the page and click the “Results” on menu.
- Finalized results will be emailed to all participants after the race (provided we have a valid email address).
- Results will be included in the description on the Facebook photo album.
- Downloadable results will be posted on Fit & Able’s Results & Records page.
Is this a certified course race?
Currently, no Fit & Able courses are officially certified. This may affect your ability to use your recorded time from a Fit & Able event to qualify for another race.
Are there water stations on the course?
All courses have water stations. The locations of the water stations depend on the course design and venue. The course maps will indicate where the planned water stations will be located.
Are elevation maps of the race course available?
Fit & Able currently doesn’t produce course maps with this kind of detail for participants.
I’m trying to achieve a certain time. Do you provide race pacers?
Fit & Able currently does not provide runners you can pace with.
What is your refund, transfer, or exchange policy?
No refunds, transfers, or exchanges! Regardless of personal circumstances.
Can my friend, spouse, or someone-else-not-myself pick up my packet?
No. Adults cannot pickup race packets for other adults, including spouses, even if they bring a copy of their photo ID. Packets can’t be picked up without signing the waiver and adults can’t sign waivers for other adults.
The only people who can pick up race packets and sign waivers for others are parents for their minor children. Parents cannot pickup packets or sign waivers for adult children.
I want to run in multiple races at an event. Do I need to register for all of them?
Yes, each race is separate. For example, if you’re signing up for the 5K but want to also run the mile, you will need to register and pay for both. Some events may include a Buy 1 Get 1 option, but those events will specifically indicate that special.
My young child wants to do the fun run but can’t run by himself. Do I (the parent) need to sign up too?
Yes. Anyone running on the race course, even if only escorting a small child, must register for the race. This way we know who we are responsible for on the course and who has signed the liability waiver.
I signed up to volunteer on the race site. When will I receive instructions about the event?
Thank you for volunteering! Without volunteers like you we wouldn’t be able to stage great events.
You will receive volunteer information and instructions the week prior to the event at the email address you used to sign up. Depending on the event there could be one or more messages that you need to read. So please be on the look out for these emails in your inbox! The messages will include the date and time of the event, the event schedule, your volunteer responsibilities and location, and the contact information for the Race Director and Volunteer Coordinator.
My company would like to sponsor an event. How can we do that?

Yes, and we would love to have you!
What do we need to do to have a booth?
Fit & Able will provide the space and the crowd but vendors need to bring their own tents, tables, chairs, power, and anything else they will need for their booth. Depending on the event some items may be available to rent.
Fit & Able may require a third party insurance certificate from vendors depending on what they are doing at the event.
