Q: When is the deadline to sign up?
A: June 4th, 2012 at 8AM is the online deadline. If you choose to sign-up using a hard copy registration form, it must be mailed and postmarked by May 29th. Or you can drop them off at our last minute in-person sign-ups as listed on the Team Breadhead page.
Q: I have a group at work or church that wants to collectively join your team. How do I create a sub GROUP under Team Breadhead?
A: If you want to be recognized as a group within our team, that’s great! This is recommended if you have a SUB GROUP OF 25 OR MORE PEOPLE. It’s simple to do. If you are signing up online and using the online registration, while going through the blank spaces and filling them in, you will come across “Field #3 “Building/Employee Number” “. This is where you put the name of your sub-group. If you are filling out a hard copy form that you printed out or picked up, it is the space called “Bldg/Emp #:”. Make sure you all put the exact same spelling of your sub-team so they match. It’s that simple!
Then on t-shirt pickup day, one of you can come pick up for all of you at our t-shirt pickup locations. PLEASE EMAIL JUDI PRIOR TO TSHIRT PICKUP TO LET HER KNOW IF YOU ARE PICKING UP A SUB GROUP’S SHIRTS IN MISSOURI OR ILLINOIS. If you have an additional questions, please email Judi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a group of 25 or less people, you are still welcome to pick up shirts for your entire group.
Unfortunately, there is no way to track progress of a sub group on a team. Sub groups are designed to make Tshirt pickup convenient for you.
Q: I signed up for sleep in for the cure. Where do I pick up my shirt?
A: You still must pick up your shirts (plus other “Sleep-in” premiums) at one of our two Team Breadhead pickup locations on June 20th at TheBANK of Edwardsville located at 5720 West Main Street in Belleville, IL from 7am-6pm or on June 21st at 11635 Olive Blvd. in Creve Coeur (under the WIL Studio in the CityPlace Retail Center) from 7am-6pm. They will not be mailed as in years past.
Q: I did not receive a confirmation email when I signed up online. How do I know if I’m on the team, and will I need the confirmation to pick up my shirts?
A: If you did not receive an email confirmation after your online registration, check your spam folder. It may have been filtered. If you still do not have it, no biggie! Just bring a photo ID to pick up your shirts on the pickup days.
You may also go back into Team Breadhead/MO Bap and look through the list to see if your name appears on the team roster.
Q: Do I get a confirmation if I mail in or drop off a printed registration form? Then how do I claim my t-shirts?
A: No, you will not receive a confirmation if you signed up in person or sent in a form. To pick up your shirts in this situation, simply bring your photo ID.
Q: Can I pick up shirts for other people?
A: Yes. If you are picking up for someone else, please just bring a copy of their registration confirmation or a copy of their photo ID.
Q: How many race shirts do I get?
A: TWO! You get a Komen Race Shirt, and our Team Breadhead shirt. Survivors who designate themselves as such get an additional Pink Survivor Komen shirt. You will get them all at our Team Breadhead t-shirt pickup locations on June 20th & 21st (locations TBD).
Q: Can I bring my kids on race day? Do they have to sign-up to attend?
A: Yes and No! Children are encouraged to come, and are more than welcome to join our team. Strollers and wagons are welcome. Your child’s $25 registration fee will get them 2 children’s size t-shirts. The smallest size Tshirts are a Youth Medium (10-12). Children don’t HAVE to be registered to walk with you. They just won’t get the coolest shirt in this year’s race!
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Komen discourages pets during the Race for the Cure, except for assistance animals.
Q: How long is the race?
A: You may participate as a runner or a walker in the 5K Run/Walk (3.1 miles) or the 1-Mile Walk that will begin after the 5K Race/Walk begins.
Q: Do we walk together as a team?
A: We’ve tried, but that’s pretty hard to do! We encourage you to walk at your own pace. Our moments together will be before and after the race!
Q: What happens if it rains on Race Day?
A: The Race for the Cure occurs rain or shine. However, they reserve the right to cancel the Race for the Cure in extreme circumstances. If the Race for the Cure is cancelled, no refunds will be issued. Instead, your entry fee, donations and pledges will be used as a donation to the Komen St. Louis Affiliate.
Q: Where do I park on Race Day?
A: We invite you to utilize any of the S&H Parking lots around downtown. Please remember that not all lots will be open due to road closures near the race route, especially as the morning progresses. Parking is also available on many of the city streets that are not located in the immediate vicinity of the Race Site. Garage and parking lot parking is available on a limited first-come basis. All parking fees and liability are the responsibility of the participant. The Metrolink schedule is available at www.metrostlouis.org.
Q: Are we allowed to carry firearms or ammunition at this event?
A: The carrying or selling of these items at this event and/or venue is strictly prohibited.
