Finish Line After Party
As you cross the finish line, we’ll make sure you get nice and wet…thanks to the Brookhaven Fire Department! Then you can enjoy some post-race refreshments including ice-cold watermelon, take plenty of pictures, and hang out until the awards ceremony!
With each event we do, we want to give back to the community in some way. We’re excited to be partnering with the Brookhaven School District and hosting a School Supply Drive to benefit kids in need! Simply bring your school supplies with you to the race. We’ll collect them and deliver them to the school. Whether you would like to bring a backpack full, or just one item, we would greatly appreciate any donation you can provide!
Don’t want to run but still want to be a part? Volunteer! Volunteers will be needed to serve in the following areas:
- Water Stations
- Setup/Clean up
- Assisting at Finish Line After Party
All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt, but the best part is you’ll get to be a blessing to all of our participants and you’ll be a huge part of making this event a great success!
Are refunds available if I can’t make it?
No. Since all race expenses have to be paid prior to the race, we are unable to offer any refunds.
Can I still get my t-shirt if I am unable to make it?
If someone you know is able to pick it up for you at the event we will allow them to do so. You must let us know ahead of time who will be picking it up for you. We will not mail t-shirts if you are unable to make it.
Do I have to get wet if I don’t want to?
Well…..yes. While some things at the Finish Line After party will be optional, we cannot guarantee that you won’t get wet on the course.
I’ve never run a splash race of any kind, what should I wear?
Most running clothes are made to get wet. Just be sure you dress appropriately, knowing that whatever you wear will most likely be pretty wet. This is a family-friendly event so please keep this in mind. Shirts must be worn. Use your own discretion in wearing your Fitbit, Garmin, or any watch that may not be water proof. Defining Moment Events will not be responsible for any damaged items.
Do I have to stay for the awards presentation to get my award?
Yes. We will not mail awards.
Will results and times be posted?
Yes. Southern Race Timing will be our timer and results will be posted at http://www.runolebrook.com.
Are strollers allowed?
Yes strollers are welcome, but please be mindful of other runners and use caution.
Are pets allowed?
No. Due to safety concerns of other runners, we do not allow pets.
Can I wear headphones during the race?
Yes. Just be cautious and aware of other runners, and be sure you can hear instructions and are able to hear any oncoming traffic.
