Does registration include weekend entry to Cary Main Street Fest (CMSF)?
Yes. Your participation in the Cary Shuffle 5K will include access to CMSF on both Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17. Race Packet Pickup will be on Saturday September 16 at Cary Main Street Fest in Downtown Cary, IL. This is located on Main Street between Jandus and High Road. Go to the gate at the East end of the festival (closest to The Tracks Bar & Grill). A Shuffle volunteer will be there to tell you where to go to get your race packet, which will include a wristband to use for re-entry to Cary Main Street Fest. This benefit applies to the registered runner only. Other members of your party are not included.
The Cary Shuffle included youth events in the past. Why aren't there any youth events in 2017?
There are many benefits of our new partnership with Cary Main Street Fest. There are, unfortunately, some tradeoffs too. We don't have the space or time to conduct youth events. The event will, however, include access to the Cary Main Street Fest Family Area where there are many activities for youngsters.
Event shirt is not automatically included in registration fee after August 31. Why?
We are required to place the order for shirts approximately four weeks before the event takes place. To maximize the funds we are raising for our charity, the Cary 26 Education Foundation, we have to minimize the likelihood of having merchandise that we have paid for left over after the event. So after August 31, shirts are not automatically included, and the price to enter the event is reduced to reflect that. We will have a limited supply of shirts available for purchase at the registration tent on the day of the event for $10 cash.
