    Very cute blilng! How is the bling distributed(since this is a virtual race)? are the medals only for the kids races or for all participants?

  4. Are the medals available in Canada??

    • Darlena says:

      Yes we will ship to Canada! Thanks for considering our race!

      • Just wanted to say… the medal for the Great Cupcake Race is fabulous!! And… arrived in the mail (to Nova Scotia, Canada) the day before my run!! My daughter wore the Bondi band during her Terry Fox school 5k cancer fundraiser last week! We are looking forward to the Great Pumpkin race & mini mile! Great way to fundraise for a wonderful cause! Thanks for allowing us Canadians to participate!!

    Do you need to submit times ? Of any other proof of completion?

    • Darlena says:

      You can submit times to the events page or photos because well we are hoping some of you may dress in costume 😉 However we hope to have the medals shipped prior to the race date so you can wear them that day. Thanks for asking!
