Event Day Check-in:

The day of the Gov Run check-in will begin at 3 p.m. . You must have your I.D. and you must fill out a waiver. It would be helpful to also have your ticket printed and ready. There will be three stations for check-in. Your first stop will be the waiver station, which must be filled out to participate in the run. Here is a link to the waiver, printing it off and filling it out at home will speed up your check-in process! After your waiver is filled out you will need to have it and your I.D. ready to receive your wristband. Once you have your wristband you can grab your shirt and get ready for The Gov Run! Any children 5 and under will not be required to register for the race, but you will need to complete a waiver for them and they will not receive a t-shirt or paint.


Parking will be available behind the Foy Center as well as Pettus Park. Check-in will be located outside the MUC. For a copy of the race day map, check out The after party will be inside the intramural field located at the corner of Drane St. and Marion.
