Yes! If you need to switch distances, you can do so on your NYCRUNS dashboard or in person on race morning at the Bib Pick-Up tent. You may only switch distances if the distance you are looking to switch to is not sold out.
If you switch distances, you also must pick up a new bib on race day from the Bib Pick-Up tent, if it has not already been shipped to you before the race. Runners who participate with a bib for an improper distance (i.e. you run the 5K with a 10K bib or vice versa) will not be scored, eligible for awards, or appear in race results.
If the event you’re registered for has multiple distances at the same price (e.g. a 5K and a 10K), you will be able to make this change yourself up to the day before the event. In order to make a switch yourself on your dashboard, follow these steps:
- Sign in to your NYCRUNS account and view your dashboard.
- Click on “Upcoming Races.”
- Find the race you’d like to update information for and click “Modify Registration.”
- Make adjustments to the information you’d like to change.
- Click “Submit.”
If the event you’re registered for has multiple races at different prices, you won’t be able to make this change yourself. In this case, please take a moment to fill out our contact form and someone from The Team will get back to you soon.
