FAQ

Be sure to read the entire Race Details page in addition to this FAQ to make sure you have all the necessary info about The Loco Full & Half Marathon!

Packet pickup/registration is from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m., so we suggest arriving no later than 6:30 a.m. to ensure you have time to park, pick up your bib, and get to the starting line before 8 a.m.
No, we love dogs but they’re not allowed on the course during the race.
We discourage the use of headphones on the course because with them in, it’s harder for you to hear the race marshals and incoming traffic.
No, for safety reasons strollers are not allowed on the course during this race.
Yes, we’ll have pace guides running at 7:00, 7:15, 7:25, 7:35, 8:00, 8:10, 8:25, 8:55 minutes per mile.
Yes. For the full marathon: 5:30. For the half: 3 hours. Note: Marathoners should be through the half way point no later than 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The roads are NOT closed for this race. We have police and race marshals at all corners, but please be aware of traffic on the course. We put a lane of cones for the runners in high-traffic areas. Please stay within the cones for your own safety.
Prizes are awarded to the top 3 men and women finishers overall, and to the top 3 men and women in the following categories: 19 & Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+. Awards must be picked up at the awards table in the Ballroom. They will not be mailed.
We put portapotties at the Start and at Miles 3, 5, 7, 9, & 11 on the course.
Shirts are available in men’s and women’s sizes (S-XXL). You select a unisex size during online registration but we allow you to choose a different size at packet pick-up because we know that sometimes shirts fit a little differently than you expected. However, because people can change their minds at the last minute, we don’t actually know how many of each size to order. We do our best to estimate (and we even order extras), but sometimes we run out of a particular size. So, if it’s really important that you get a specific size, be sure to arrive at packet pick-up as early as possible.
We’re sorry, but there are no refunds, transfers or deferrals.
Yes, you may elect to drop down from the full marathon, but you won’t get a refund for the price difference. Email linda@locorunning.com to switch your registration.
The course is certified and accurate according to USATF standards. However your GPS measurement of the course is bound to be different and will most likely show the distance covered to be “long.” This is normal, and here’s a very technical explanation why: In GPS We Trust.
