Most frequent questions and answers
Participants MAY NOT RUN THE COURSE MORE THAN ONE TIME UNLESS THEY REGISTER TWICE. For example, a participant may run in both an individual and team wave as long as they have paid for each registration. Participants will only be timed in the wave(s) that they start in.
Our policy is that we do not allow refunds, except in the case of military deployments.
There’s no time limit. We want all participants to finish the course in a time that is safe and comfortable to them!
It is a challenge but it is also constructed to be safe for all ages of the participants and the skill level of those participants (some of our younger participants will need assistance, however). You might find some obstacles challenging and others a piece of cake. Just for Fun Waves may skip obstacles without paying the burpee penalty.
We encourage parents to run in the Just for Fun non-competitive wave with their kids, if desired. Adults/parents must be registred to run with their child. EVERY RUNNER MUST BE REGISTRED. If your child desires to run the course alone, they may run in any wave.
**Please Note: 12 & Under may race in any wave but runners are NOT eligible for awards in the “Just For Fun” waves.
We suggest keeping your items somewhere where you know it will be safe, as we will not have a bag check at the event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. ASCO Spartacus Dash recommends locking vehicles at the event and does not recommend leaving property (especially valuables) in cars. WE WILL HAVE A KEY DROP. PLEASE VISIT THE KEY DROP TENT. ALL ITEMS MUST FIT IN THE QUART SIZED ZIPLOCK BAG PROVIDED AT THE KEY DROP TENT.
A participant can opt out of an obstacle by going around it, with the exception of the competitive waves. Participants ages 12 years and older must complete the obstacle or 15 burpees in the event of a failed obstacle. However, those under the ages of 11 years must complete 10 burpees. Volunteers will be on site to ensure rules are followed. Failure to follow any race rules will result in a DQ.
PARTICIPANTS MUST ATTEMPT TO COMPLETE AN OBSTACLE BEFORE BEGINNING BURPEES. An attempt, at a minimum, is defined by touching the obstacle and making a legitimate effort to make forward progress. In other cases it may include entering the water or other difficult terrain, to get to the obstacle itself. Such terrain cannot be bypassed via a penalty, unless advised as acceptable in pre-race briefings or by race day staff/volunteers.
IN OTHER WORDS, YOU CANNOT ARRIVE TO AN OBSTACLE AND CHOOSE TO “SKIP” IT IN EXCHANGE FOR BURPEES. YOU MUST ATTEMPT THE OBSTACLE AND FAIL BEFORE BEGINNING BURPEES.
