CHARITY PARTNER

The Chamber has chosen the Retired Professional Firefighters Cancer Fund as our 2018 Charity Partner.

The Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund Inc. is a non profit 501(C)3 organization committed to raising funds for cancer research programs. Their funds are allocated to established programs that seek to impact those cancers that have higher occurrence rates among Fire Fighters. Although they focus on “Fire Fighter Cancers”, everyone will benefit from their efforts because as we all know cancer does not discriminate.

You can make a voluntary contribution when you register, or visit their website at letsfirecancer.org

F.A.Q.

What if I can’t run on race day?
You can defer your 2018 race entry fee for 1-year at 50% of the next year’s registration fee paid. Contact the Race Director to set this up. You must request this by April 20th, 2018.
What if I can’t make the Expo on Friday or Saturday?
There will be Packet Pick-Up on Race Day at NYSEG Stadium beginning at 6:00 a.m. for the Half Marathon and 8:00 a.m. for the 5K. Race Day Packet Pick-Up will include your bib, timing device and shirt only.
What if I can’t remember if I registered?
We have a tool called Confirm Your Entry, which allows you to double-check your entry for the Bridge Run.
Are walkers allowed?
You can walk in either event, but walkers MUST adhere to sidewalks wherever available. It is also important that walkers line up at the back of the pack at the start. DO NOT START NEAR THE FRONT TOWARD THE STARTING LINE, because you will be blocking people who are planning to run and will need to get around you. Best practice for runners or walkers is to line up near other people who are going to be going your expected pace, and for walkers this usually means toward the end of the group. Please note also that the course closes for both races at 11:00 a.m. We cannot guarantee that your time will be recorded if you finish after 11:00 a.m. At that time, all road marshals and safety crews will leave the course.
Can I wear headphones?
If you wear headphones while you are running, you are competing in violation of race policies. We will not disqualify you, but when you sign the waiver to compete, you acknowledge that you are doing this at your own risk. We strongly discourage the wearing of headphones during the Bridge Run. There are areas of the course where runners need to be aware of their surroundings and able to hear directions from road marshals.
Can I run with a stroller or dog?
No. Strollers as well as animals are prohibited from the race course and if you run with a dog, you will be asked to leave the course.
What all is included with the Bridge Run registration and event?
Half Marathon registration includes: Long Sleeve Tech Shirt and Commemorative Finishers Medal. 5K: Tech Shirt. Both: entry to the Finish Line Cool Down party. There are a number of events leading up to and during the race weekend. This includes training programs provided by a number of fitness clubs in the area. Our Packet Pick-Up and Race Expo sponsored by World Wide Sport Supply is on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th. Finally THE COOL DOWN presented by Hue offers great entertainment, drink and food specials at the finish line and around downtown Binghamton after the race is concluded. For more information visit the Total Race Experience tab.
What are the registration deadlines?
Prices increase on 12/1/2017, 2/1/2018 and 4/1/2018. On-line registration closes on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at 12:00 pm ET.
What is the refund policy?
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a refund. If you cannot participate in this year's race, you can defer your race registration at 50% of the registration fee for the next year's event. The reduced registration will be applicable until the registration deadline for the next year's race. You will receive, via e-mail, a deferral code that can be used to register for the next year's race. You must complete this by April 20th, 2018.
When do I pick up my race packet?
You can pick up your race packet on Friday, May 4, 2018 between 4:00 – 8:00 pm or Saturday, May 5, 2018 between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm at Worldwide Sport Supply, 2809 Old Vestal Road, Vestal. Race day packet pick-up is also available on race day at NYSEG Stadium (6:00 am for the Half Marathon and 8:00 am for the 5k).
Can I pick up someone else’s race packet?

Is my donation to the Charity Partner tax-deductible?
Yes it is!
Can I transfer my bib to another person?
Yes, if you can not run and you want to transfer your bib to another person, you can for a small fee. This is only available until April 1st.
Can I switch races after I have already registered?
Yes. If you want to switch from 5K to Half, you can do this online or by calling and paying the registration charge difference. If you want to switch from Half to 5K, you can do this also but you will not be refunded the difference in fees.
