Just the FAQ’s, ma’am

Q: Can I change my Start Wave after I’ve registered?: I want to join my friends in a wave that is full. Can you add additional people to closed waves?
A: Unfortunately, waves are limited to 250, and we are unable to add to them once they are full. If you want to add more people to your team and a wave is closed, you can move your team to a different wave with open spots. To do this, click the ‘transfer to a different category’ link on your registration confirmation email.

Q: What is the “Family Category”?
A: The family category is for everybody in the family: Moms, Dads, and Kids! Kids run for a reduced fee and get a medal for finishing!

A: Yes, but please note there is a $10 fee to make the change. Online transfer can not be made the week of the event. You CAN transfer to another person on race day. Please have the NEW participant bring the following:

Q: Is there a BAG CHECK for athletes?
A: In some cities we will offer a bag check.  Bag check availability varies by venue, so review the city page for specifics. You must show your bib number to claim your bag. The Shape Diva Dash is not liable for any lost, damaged or stolen items. We STRONGLY recommend that you do not place any valuable items (ie: phones, cameras, car keys, drivers license) in your bag. We also recommend that you do not overstuff your bag, place heavy items in the bags or store any breakables in the bag. Unclaimed Bags will be returned to The Shape Diva Dash Event Producers (Adventure Fit Inc). You will have five days to claim your bag or contact us about shipping your bag. There is a $50 shipping charge for returning unclaimed bags. After 5 days, all unclaimed bags will be donated to charity.

Q: I’ve never done anything like this before. What should I expect? Am I strong or coordinated or fast enough?
A. Enough for what? I think the real question here is “do I want to have fun, get a great work out, and create memories with your friends and family?” If the answer is yes, then you’re ready! But seriously, you can do it! We have had all shapes and sizes and abilities do the SHAPE Diva Dash. The most challenging obstacles have an easier option and you can always skip an obstacle if it’s too much for you.

The bottom line is that this is a fun run. If you’re comfortable with the running aspect of the Dash, then you’re going to love this event. Take it at your own pace and be prepared to have a great time matter what your fitness level. And if you don’t run, just walk! It’ll still be great fun.

A: The SHAPE Diva Dash is open to runners 7 and up. We have had participants in their 80′s as well. Participants under 12 will need to run with a guardian

Q: What’s the Training Program?
A: We’ve partnered up with local running stores and partners in each city and SHAPE magazine to offer several convenient options for Diva Dash training. Check your city page to find out which stores are offering free training programs in your area.
