Clarksburg Country Run will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2024!
What payment methods are accepted?
For online registrations, credit card only. For participants registering on Race Day, we accept cash, credit card and check.
How do I find out if my registration went through?
You can confirm your registration on RunSignUp by searching for your name or email address.
I lost my confirmation email. How do I get a new email sent with the confirmation information?
Please go to Run Sign Up and search for the participant needing the confirmation email sent. Once you find your registration you can request that the confirmation email be resent.
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 November 7, 2024, 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 early to allow time to register.
I’m a PAUSATF Runner, how do I register?
When you register please be sure to add your PA number in order to be included in the Grand Prix LDR/Half Marathon prizes. If you’re a Grand Prix Long Distance Runner and you are on the PAUSATF Grand Prix LDR Comped list for the Half Marathon this year, please contact us at email@example.com with your name and PA number to get a comp code for registration.
Coupon codes, do you offer any?
Generally, no. The prices posted are the prices everyone pays. However, sponsors of the race at the Gold level and PAUSATF Grand Prix LDR Comped runners receive a discount. Running Clubs may also be eligible for a limited time discount. Contact us at Clarksburgcountryrun@gmail.com to find out if your running club is eligible.
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.
How much of the money raised is donated and who benefits?
All donation dollars raised go directly to Friends of Clarksburg Services and Recreation. The Friends of Clarksburg Services and Recreation’s goal is to establish a public park and aquatic center in the North Delta region. FCSR is currently working to create a joint-use Clarksburg Community Park and Aquatic Center in collaboration with the River Delta Unified School District and the County of Yolo. At its core, FCSR believes that access to sports and recreational opportunities build and connect community while enhancing the health and safety of its residents.
Is my donation tax deductible?
All donations are 100% tax deductible. Once your donation has been processed, you will receive a thank you letter with our organization’s nonprofit tax ID on it.
Is there a packet pick-up before Race Day?
Yes, race packets (bib and shirt, and socks, if you were among the first 200 people to donate $50) can be picked up before the race on Saturday, November 9, from 10am to 2pm at Fleet Feet in Elk Grove. On race day, Sunday November 10, bibs can be picked up at the race site beginning at 6:30 am. In person registration also available during this time.
Can I pick up registration materials for other people?
Yes, you may pick up packets for friends and family members. However, you must have their confirmation email with the barcode/QR code either printed out or preferably on your smartphone.
Can I have my shirt and bib mailed?
Unfortunately, no. Shirts and bibs need to be picked up either at packet pickup or on race day.
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 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. Results will be available on the internet during the event at results.changeofpace.com – select the Clarksburg Country Run. At the race, QR codes will be posted around the venue, and with any smartphone you can uses the camera app to scan the code (simply hold the phone over the code as if you were going to take a picture of it), which will open your mobile browser on the event results page. Computers will not be available to check results at the race.
Runners can pick up their race lunch near the watering hole, look for the Race Lunch sign. Please remember to only take one so that everyone gets their lunch, especially those 30K and Half Marathon runners that come in late, they will want them! Depending upon supplies, non- race participants may also purchase a lunch after all of the racers come in, but only while supplies last.
After you pick up your Race Lunch, please join us for a beer, cider, sparkling wine, or mimosa at the Watering Hole and visit our vendor area where you can pick up a race shirt. They are perfect for gifts!
If you checked in gear at the Sweat Check Area, please don’t forget to pick them up.
Are there time limits for completing the races?
Yes, please see the Course page for further details.
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. Due to the Marathon Championship race pacing 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.
Where can I park?
Parking will be available at the Old Sugar Mill located at 35265 Willow Ave, Clarksburg, CA 95612 a little less than ½ mile away from the race start. Please see the Directions and Parking page for additional details.
Where is lost and found?
Lost and found is located at Sweat Check.
Can I bring my dog to the race?
We don’t encourage dogs in the race but, if you do, you must start in the back of the pack, for safety reasons.
What if there is an emergency?
This race is staffed by the Clarksburg Community’s generous volunteer fire department personnel and HAM radio operators are located at locations all throughout the race including but not limited to the race HQ and at each aid station, as well as all along the course. Additionally, there will be emergency response personnel on site in the event of an emergency.
How do I volunteer?
Volunteers are always needed to assist with race day tasks, including registration, course monitors and refreshments. Volunteer sign up information will be posted here before the race, but if you know you are interested now, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you (or your group) would like to assist on race day.
I want to have a booth in your newly planned vendor area, how do I do that?
Want to have a booth at the Clarksburg Country Run? We’d love to establish a vendor area this year have running related booths or things available that runners might enjoy. Please email us at email@example.com with information about what you would like to sell for consideration. Vendors will need to arrive the morning of November 10th after 6:00am and be fully set up by 7:30am. Vendor fee may apply.
Timing and Results
What About Results and Awards?
Results will be available on the internet during the event at results.changeofpace.com – select the Clarksburg Country Run. At the race, QR codes will be posted around the venue, and with any smartphone you can uses the camera app to scan the code (simply hold the phone over the code as if you were going to take a picture of it), which will open your mobile browser on the event results page. In an effort to minimize shared touchpoints and to maintain social distancing when possible, computers will not be available to check results at the race.
Awards will be available for pick up on site. If you are an age group contender, please stick around to pick up your award. They will not be mailed.
The 30K, 10K and 5K will be scored based on Net time. The Half Marathon, since it is the PAUSATF Half Marathon Championship, will be scored based on Gun time, although net time will be reported, please have patience on awards for the Half, as it takes time for final results.
Please review carefully additional race information on the race web site including additional race rules, course time limits, new course map, awards and prize money, and special race features.
Is there an awards ceremony?
No, but please visit the awards booth to pick up your award before you leave. We will place awards at Fleet Feet in Elk Grove for two weeks after the race, but after that they will no be available.
Where can I find past race results?
