Fall Twitter Road Race - Final Instructions

Race day is Saturday, November 3rd and the race distance is a 10K. The finisher's form is posted under the Twitter Road Race tab on my blog. You MUST submit the time of your 10K on this form by 11:59 PM Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HAST) Saturday night to be counted as an official finisher. After the cutoff time, submissions will no longer be accepted.

Only submit your time once. If you realized you made a mistake or are unsure if your time was submitted, tweet me and I'd be happy to check and make any necessary corrections for you.

IMPORTANT: When you enter your time into the form, PLEASE be sure you enter it in the correct format, which is HH:MM:SS. For example, if you ran your 10K in 56 minutes and 10 seconds, please enter your time as 00:56:10. If you enter your time as 56:10, leaving out the 00: for the hour placeholder, the form is going to think it took you 56 hours and 10 minutes. So, please be mindful of that. Thank you :)

The results will be posted no later than 12pm, Eastern Time on Sunday. I will be sure to tweet the link once the results are ready.

Q: Can I run the race on a treadmill?
A: Yes.
Q: My training program calls for a 10 mile run on Saturday, can I use a 10K split from that run to count towards the Twitter Road Race?
A: Yes. 
Q: I have a 10K race on the same day as the Twitter Road Race, can I use my time from that race for the Twitter Road Race?
A: Yes.

See a trend here?

Basically, any way you can run the 10K is fine by me. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to tweet me your questions and I will be happy to answer them.

Again, thank you so much for spreading the word about this event! Please continue to tweet using #TwitterRoadRace so we can get as many runners as we can on race day! I wish you all a great and safe race! Have fun out there!

Happy Running!
