The most important thing is that you just come out and do it. You will find the environment very accommodating and that there are folks of all levels out there doing the same thing you are. Enjoy it. Run, walk, scurry, scamper – do a bit of it all – and the more often you do it, you’ll find that bug biting and the desire to keep doing it will take over.
Feat on the Street may alter a published course at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to road or trail construction, runner safety, municipality requirements, or other situations.
Feat on the Street, as advised by the Police and Fire/EMS Departments, may cancel, shorten, or alter any event or course due to weather, other acts of God, terrorism, or for any other reasons within or not within the control of Feat on the Street. In the case of event change, all entry fees are non-refundable and may not be deferred toward a future event. Feat on the Street also reserves the right to change a race to an untimed “fun run” without advance notice. Final decisions regarding conduct of races will be made within an hour to a half hour prior to the start of the race and will be announced, if possible, by direct email or through social media and/or within the Race Updates found on the race-specific web site.
Feat on the Street is committed to providing opportunities for all people to participate in our events regardless of speed and do our best to obtain finish times for all timed participants. Course time limits are in place and enforced in order to adhere to municipality and permit requirements per the following guidelines based on gross race start gun time. Guidelines may change as required by weather, police availability, and other safety concerns and, while rare, can happen as late as prior to/during the event. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration to inquire about consideration of any needed special circumstances. Generally, RACE DISTANCE COURSE TIME CUT-OFF is roughly based on a 18 minute per mile pace
For most of our races, this is the first option after you click REGISTER and then select your race distance. You will see this: “If you have a promotional discount code, enter it here.’

Most Feat on the Street events offer a volunteer-manned bag check station. Items are left at your own risk and can be picked up after you’ve completed your event.
If you are registering the day of the race, fill out the form, and pay, and you’ll get your packet. If the race is chip timed, you’ll need to get your bib (for most Feat on the Street races, your timing chip will be attached to your bib). Attach the bib number to the front of your body – preferably on the front, lower section of your shirt. Go potty. Runners love to go potty before races. The lines for the potties will be long.
When you see everyone heading to the start line, follow them. Runners are supposed to line up according to how they think they will finish – fast runners in the front, slow runners in the back, walkers behind the runners. This prevents congestion on the course. You want to be amongst runners who will be running the same pace as you. You don’t want to be passed by swarms of folks, and you don’t want to be dodging and weaving around people slower than you.
