Clarksburg Country Run will be held on Sunday, November 13, 2022!
(See below for FAQ information)
Can I Switch Race Distances?
Yes, but there are separate race numbers and timing chips for each distance. You can change distances in advance by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to switch divisions is October 29, 2022. You can also do so through your runsignup account.
There are fee differences between some of the different races. If you need to “upgrade” your race division, you will need to pay an additional entry fee. However, if you “downgrade,” please be advised that there is no refund if you move from a longer distance to a shorter division.
Because the 30-km and half-marathon have different starting times, you can’t change your mind after your race begins. Changing your mind after the race begins is considered a DNF. All entrants must wear the correct race number on the front of their body and timing chip for the race distance.
Do You Offer Race Day Registration?
Yes. Plan on arriving a early to allow time to register.
Is there a packet pick-up before Race Day?
YES Race packets (bib and shirt) can be picked up before the race on Saturday, November 12, from 10am to 2pm at Fleet Feet in Elk Grove. On race day, Sunday November 13, 2022, bibs can be picked up at the race site beginning at 6:30 am. In person registration also available during this time.
I’m a PAUSATF Runner, how do I register?
When you register please be sure to add your PA number. If your a Grand Prix Long Distance runner and you are on the PAUSATF Grand Prix LDR list for this year, please contact us and please add your PA number in order to be included in the Grand Prix LDR/Half Marathon prizes.
Coupon codes, do you offer any?
No. The prices posted are the prices everyone pays. The coupon code field is only used for runners in certain sponsorship situations.
Do you have “chip timing”?
Yes. We will be using disposable RFID chip timing. Each race bib will have timing chips affixed to the back of the bib. The chips remain on the bib, and there is nothing to put on your shoe. Simply wear your bib on the front of your body. All races except the kid’s fun runs are timed.
What Else do I Need to Know About the Courses?
- For most of the long-distance courses, you will run/walk on the right side of the road (with traffic). The exceptions for the 30 km are: On Jefferson Blvd. where all runners run on the left side of the road; And, on Waukeena Road north of Courtland Road (the levee) where you have full road access.
- Please remember that 30 km and half-marathon runners start at different times but share the same roads so expect lots of passing. Please run/walk single file and stay towards the edge of the road to allow safer passing.
- Though there will be signage and volunteers, ultimately, you are responsible for running the correct course–i.e. turning around at the right place for the half marathon or including the out-and-back section if doing the 30 km.
Can Spectators See Runners on the Course?
Not easily. Clarksburg is a long race over many miles in a rural community. The entire course is on narrow two-lane roads past farms and wineries. The only places on the course that can accommodate spectators are: Clarksburg and Tule Road. Use Clarksburg Road and Jefferson Blvd. to access these locations. Consider the finish line area as the best viewing area, as there is plenty of room to cheer on runners being announced as they come in. Be considerate of competitors and do not drive on the course. See course map.
What Happens at the Finish and After the Race?
There will be a digital clock at the finish with the time for each race distance. All race finishers will be presented a finish medal.

I am pre-registered for the event but can no longer make it because I have to work / am injured / have a family emergency / my child has a soccer game / I’m going out of town / etc etc – can I have a refund?
We are sorry to hear that you cannot make it, whatever the reason. Best wishes to those nursing injuries – we hope that you have a speedy recovery. All entries are non-refundable and non-transferable; event happens rain or shine.
Do you allow baby joggers or strollers?
They are permitted in the 5K or 10K, but you must start in the back of the pack, for safety reasons.
Do you have pace group leaders for any of the divisions?
We do not have pace groups, and due to Marathon Championship race is not allowed.
Are headphones allowed?
Headphones are not permitted in the half marathon as it is a Pacific Association USA Track and Field Championship and race officials will disqualify participants noted as wearing headphones in the half marathon. For the other divisions, you may opt to wear them, but please be advised that you should keep the volume at a level that allows you to hear vehicular traffic, emergency vehicles, other runners, course monitors and your environment around you. It is advised that you wear music in one ear only should you choose to wear earphones.
