Thin Mint Sprint FAQs

Are entry fees refundable?
We are unable to provide refunds. You may transfer your entry fee to another racer of your choosing if you’ve registered but cannot join us on race day.

What is the deadline for registration?
Online registration closes at 5 p.m. on June 8. Paper or phone registrations are accepted until 7:45 a.m. the morning of the race. If you are mailing your registration, please plan accordingly so it is received no later than June 13. Event T-shirts and swag bags are not guaranteed for those who register after May 31.

What do I get with my registration?
Thin Mint Sprint participants will receive a wicking race shirt and reusable grocery bag with goodies stuffed inside (guaranteed only for registrations received by May 31). Shortbread Shuffle participants will receive a cotton T-shirt. All participants, families, and friends are welcome to attend the community expo during and after the race, which includes music, entertainment, and local business booths.
The top male and female racers will be awarded a Thin Mint Sprint cookie jar stuffed with Thin Mints. The top three male and female finishers in each age division will receive a hand-carved wooden medal.

Do you mail the race packets?
No, we cannot mail out race packets. Please plan on picking them up the day before or the morning of the race, or assign someone to pick up your packet for you. If someone picks the packet up for you, they will need to show their ID.

What time should I arrive?
If you need to pick up your packet the morning of the race, please arrive between 7:15-7:45 a.m. If you picked up your packet the day before, please arrive no later than 7:45 a.m. for the Shortbread Shuffle or 8:15 a.m. for the Thin Mint Sprint.

What should I bring to the race?
Please bring your chip timer and race bib (if you picked up your packet early). Otherwise, pack light and only bring what you can carry.

Unregistered children, however, will not be eligible for awards nor receive a race T-shirt or swag bag.

What will happen after the race?
After the race, participants may enjoy snacks and beverages in the racer’s lounge and stick around for awards and an after-party complete with DJ entertainment and a community expo.
