Onsite Registration & Bib + T-Shirt Pick-Up
Runners can pick up their bib and timing chip on race morning, however it is recommended that all runners attend Saturday registration to alleviate race morning delays.
Participants may pick-up bibs and shirts for friends and family, but must provide a copy of the ID or a photo of the ID on their phone for verification.
Shirts & Medals
All registered participants will receive a long sleeve cotton t-shirt with Portland 10 Miler artwork on the chest, sleeve and back. All finisher’s will receive a finisher’s medal.
Please note that shirts are ordered weeks in advance of the event and that size quantities are based on what participants indicated when they registered. For this reason, we ask that you please pick-up the shirt size you registered for.
Here at Gray Matter Marketing, we recognize that life happens. Our defined refund, deferment and transfer policies allow runners to delay participation by a year or give someone else the chance to run in their place, both for a fee and before a specific deadline. Fees and deadlines are outlined on each event website, as well as in each registration waiver. Exceptions to this policy will not be granted for any reason, including injury, pregnancy, and family emergencies. We regret that we cannot make exceptions.

There is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. Entry fees are non-refundable. Please check the website, our Facebook page and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations. All entry fees are non-refundable, and there will be no-rain date.
