What this means is all runners who signed up to take part in the race will receive their racing packages in the mail, which will include their medal, bib number, free t-shirt, and quarter zip (for the half and full marathon runners).

Then, each runner must run their race, whether it be 3.1 miles, 13.1 miles, or 26.2 miles. Runners are asked to track their time, and when finished, they can log onto their EnMotive to upload their results and download their official finisher’s certificate.
