Thanks to everyone who joined us for the 8th annual Scottsdale Giant Race presented by Alaska Airlines!
Information about the 2022 Scottsdale Giant Race will posted here soon, so keep your running shoes close! We hope you see you then!
What swag do I get for signing up?
By signing up for each race, you will receive a finisher’s medal, commemorative race bib and (new this year, instead of shirts) a limited edition hat! Hat styles will differ at each series stop and be revealed as we get closer to race day. Plus – register for San Francisco and you’ll reserve your 2021 Player Bobblehead (we’re excited about this one). All items will be mailed directly to you. Scottsdale Giant Race packets will be mailed out after March 27th.
Virtual Race? What’s that?
Simple – just run when you want and where you want (safely and socially distanced of course).
What if the race becomes in-person, can I still participate?
We made the decision to host virtual races for the 2021 Scottsdale, Sacramento, San Jose, and San Francisco Giant Races. We are mindful of the health & safety of our community and if we are able to offer a safe in-person running experience for the 2021 San Francisco Giant Race, you will be sure to hear about the opportunity to upgrade.
If I run by myself, how do I prove it to you?
First off, we totally trust you to complete your distances. But if you want, you can post your results on our results page. We have an entire page dedicated to instructions, FAQ’s, and information about how to use RunKeeper, a runner’s tracking app, or manually post your race results. If running technology-free is your style, it is never a requirement to share your results with us, we’ll still send you your swag. Click here to learn more about RunKeeper.
Where do I run/walk this event?
You can run/walk on the route of your choosing. Please remember to avoid running in large groups and wear a mask when appropriate!
Do I have to run?
Of course not. Running, walking, skipping, jogging, etc. are all acceptable! Driving and flying, while hilarious, do not qualify nor is encouraged.
When do I complete my race?
There is no time limit to complete your race. However, we do specify race dates for structure, “deadlines”, and to train for! Submitting your completed race results is optional, but we encourage you to do so!
I don’t live in the United States, can I still participate?
Of course! Anyone is welcome to participate. However, anyone residing outside of the United States is required to pay for shipping costs of your well deserved swag. If you do live outside the United States, you will be able to select and settle that during registration.
What if I move?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Race Date to ensure you receive your swag at the correct address.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Anyone registered for 2021RUN will need to ‘claim their registration’ prior to posting results! Please check your email for a message from Race Roster prompting you to do so, if you cannot find it send us a note and we can assist!
