Shoe Fitting Process


Can I walk the Virtual Houdini 10k?

Yes, of course! 

Can I participate with my dog, or while pushing my kiddo in the stroller?

Of course! That is the beauty of the virtual event, dogs ARE allowed (as long as you are appropriately following city laws). Strollers are welcome at the Live event, but you are more than welcome to push your kiddo in a stroller for virtual participation as well.

Can I pick up my race kit at packet pick-up for the Live event if I am local?

No. We will not be processing virtual event kits until Monday, November 4th (after the Live event on November 2nd)

I have a question!
