Maureen Mengelt Memorial 5K 2014 registration is NOW OPEN!
The 2014 event will take place on Monday, May 26th from noon to 5:30pm. Race registration, event shirt pre-orders, donations and volunteering can be done online.
When you pre-register or pre-order an event shirt, you get special perks:
- Priority order pickup line
- Guaranteed bib number/race shirt or event shirt day-of-race
- Pre-assigned bib numbers - know your number beforehand!
- Opportunity to change your order if necessary
Those registering or ordering event shirts day-of-race will receive their shirts on a first-come, first-served basis. Should there be more day-of-race registrants or shirt purchases than there are shirts, electronic vouchers will be issued.
This year we've revamped the technical systems that support the Maureen Mengelt Memorial Day 5K. After listening to your suggestions from last year, we started from scratch and created a brand-new website with the most-requested features from 2013:
- Shopping cart - now you can add the whole family's race registrations and shirt pre-orders in one transaction instead of one per registration or pre-order
- Order modification - many people accidentally choose the wrong gender or race category, so now you can make changes online after your order is completed
- Online volunteering - we had so many wonderful volunteers last year that we built a new system just to make volunteering easier. Now you can sign up for a specific volunteer post and volunteer as a group!
- Faster day-of-race registration - an improved system for completing your cash or check registration and getting your race bag
- No more PayPal! - PayPal's interface has been a major source of confusion for many racers. In 2014 we're working with directly a credit card vendor to make the payment process transparent and easy!
