When will I get my superhero cape and run information?

Capes and race bags are distributed the day-of the event, at check-in.  Capes will be offered to walk-ups upon availability.

If you have or are a Heart Hero (someone with CHD), please request a Heart Hero Cape here.  *Please note, Heart Hero Capes are shipped directly from our cape partner and are not distributed day-of the event.  Please put "SHHR" in the Organization Code field. Every effort will be made to ship the Heart Hero Cape before the event, but cannot be guaranteed.
