Tue, Jun 06, 2023National Capital Pre Race Newsletter


National Capital is coming up quickly and we wanted to send some final reminders. Please read through this entire email so that you're ready for your run! 

Transfer Deadline: Tuesday June 13th at 6pm: 

If you need to change any info related to your registration please let us know before Tuesday, June 13th at 6pm. We won't be able to make any changes after that time, so be sure to reach out soon if you need anything.

The race is officially sold out! We're working to increase capacity for 2024 but thanks for signing up in advance. 

Finisher Medals:

Who doesn't love a commemorative race medal?! If you want a finisher medal, but haven't ordered one, let us know. When you registered online, there was an option to add a medal to your order, but there wasn't an option to add multiple medals to an order. Our online platform is working to build out that feature, but until then, email me if you'd like to add more medals to your order.

We will also bring extra medals to the race, in case you want to add them to your order at the last minute. 


We'll have an in-person orientation on Friday June 16th, at 5pm, at Woodlands Beach. You'll also be able to pick up your bib on-site from 3pm to 6pm that day.

If you're not able to make it, but want to do a bit of course recon, we encourage you to watch this virtual orientation. If anything is unclear or if you have more questions, you can email Adam@somersault.ca.
