Pear Run FAQ’s:
Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions:
Q: What happens if it rains race day?
A: The race will not be stopped by rain alone! If it is lightning or there are hazardous conditions at the Pearland Town Center area only, the race may be delayed by a few minutes. After that, it may need to be cancelled due to time restrictions for the race at the Pearland Town Center. Weather conditions outside the Pearland Town Center are not what we are concerned about. Conditions only at the Pearland Town Center will dictate how we make our decisions. Check out website: pearrun.com for any last minute information concerning the Pear Run.
Q: I registered online but missed packet pick up. Can I still get my packet?
A: Yes! Come to the race site between 6:00 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. to pick up your packet.
Q: I missed online registration. Can I still participate?
A: Yes! You may register between 6-6:45 am on Race Day. Please arrive early due to possible long lines.
Q: When do all the different races start?
A: The 10k Run will start at 7:00 a.m. sharp. The 5k will begin at approximately 7:20 a.m.
Please be at the pavilion early for your race. We will have warm-up activities as well as an invocation and the National Anthem before the first race, so come on out early!
Q: Where do we park?
A: The Town Center has plenty of parking, but get there early to find the best spots near the pavilion!
Q: Can I register on Race Day?
A: Yes! Come to the Town Center Pavilion between 6-6:45am to register!
Q: I signed up for one race, but want to do another. Can I change?
A: Yes! Come to the Pavilion between 6-6:45am on Race Day and let us know!
Q: Does everyone get a medal?
A: No. We do not provide race medals to every participant. The top three finishers in each age category will receive a medal. If we gave medals to every participant we would have to increase registration prices significantly. We have decided it’s better to keep registration prices down for race participants then give every person a metal. We hope you can appreciate our decision.
Q: I registered online but missed packet pick-up. Where can I pick up my race packet?
A: Come to the Pavilion between 6:00 am-6:45 am on Race Day and pick it up!
Q: Can I bring a stroller?
- A: Strollers are NOT PERMITTEDin the 10k and 5k RUNS. This is because many of our runners are trying to qualify for the large marathons, and we don’t want them to be hindered by a stroller in the way. Also, strollers are safety hazards during runs. If you sneak a stroller in, you WILL be asked to return to the starting line.
- Strollers ARE permitted in the 5k WALK.We just ask that anyone with strollers get in the back of the starting crowd and cross the starting line after the folks who do not have strollers. This is for everyone’s safety.
Q: What if I still have a question?
A: Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
