Interested in registering for more than one 2018 Run Stillwater event at the same time? The registration system lets you do just that. Watch for that option within the registration process.
Only one person may register at a time because we need to ensure we have all the correct safety information and a separate waiver for each race participant.
Changing Your Distance
Injured or feeling so fit you want to run further? You may change your distance at packet pickup. For guests moving to a longer distance you’ll just pay the difference. There’s not charge for moving to a shorter distance. Just pick up your packet as usual and bring it too the In-Person/Changes table to make the switch.
Slow runners and walkers are welcome provided you maintain progress on the course and do not deviate from the course. Stopping is not allowed for any other reason except a medical condition, hydration and/or to use the restroom, and will mean disqualification from the race and the possibility that race support will no longer be available.
We will have Bag Drop at each start. Details are…
Pacers for the Half Marathon:

NOTE: Runner-guests will receive an email Thursday, May 24 with their bib number information. Remember this number. You will need it to pick up your packet.
The Water Street Inn is our official race headquarters hotel, welcoming runners before and after the race. Pick up your packet Friday and enjoy a complimentary tap beer. On race morning, times will be posted at the hotel and a breakfast buffet will be available with special pricing for the weekend for participants, family and friends. Special Rest and Run overnight packages will be available too. Celebrate and enjoy.
Picking Up Someone Else’s Packet
You may pick up another runner’s packet. Pleases confirm that you have agreed to do this in advance so there is no confusion with volunteers at packet pick-up.
All runners will be bussed to the start lines for all distances from downtown Stillwater. We strongly encourage using the bus system. Drop off areas are congested and no parking is available for personal vehicles. Buses will load on Water Street between Myrtle St. and Mulberry St. directly north of the Water Street Inn. Bussing to start lines will begin at 6:15 a.m. and continue until 30 minutes before start time of your race. The last bus to the Half Marathon start areas will be at 7:30 a.m. SHARP.
8:00 a.m.: All races start at the same time.
The race will occur rain or shine. Runner safety is our number one priority. We have over 65 course marshals and public safety officers stationed around the course to help runners in good weather and bad. In the event of lightening in the area, we will delay until there are no lightening strikes for 30 minutes, which is the national standard for these conditions. We have direct contacts with the national weather service in the Twin Cities and area meteorologists to track conditions.
Post Race Information:
Race results will be posted and updated regularly at the Water Street Inn; our race headquarters.
Celebrate your victory with breakfast at the Water Street Inn. A special Race Day Buffet will be offered with special pricing for participants. Friends and family are welcome. Come to relax and refuel after a great race!
No award ceremony will take place. Top three finishers in each age category will receive awards, which will be personalized and mailed after the event.
