Interested in registering for more than one 2017 Run Stillwater event at the same time? The registration system lets you do just that. Watch for that option within the registration process.
NOTE: Only one person may register at a time because we need to ensure we have all the correct safety information and a separate waiver for each race participant.
Injured or feeling so fit you want to run further? You may change your distance at packet pickup. For guests moving to a longer distance you'll just pay the difference. There's not charge for moving to a shorter distance. Just pick up your packet as usual and bring it too the In-Person/Changes table to make the switch.
Slow runners and walkers are welcome provided you maintain progress on the course and do not deviate from the course. Stopping is not allowed for any other reason except a medical condition, hydration and/or to use the restroom, and will mean disqualification from the race and the possibility that race support will no longer be available.

In the event of lightening in the area, we will delay until there are no lightening strikes for 30 minutes, which is the national standard for these conditions. We have direct contacts with the national weather service in the Twin Cities and area meteorologists to track conditions.
Race results will be posted and updated regularly at the Water Street Inn; our race headquarters.
