BCM Wellness 5K Race/Fun Run

Frequently Asked Questions

How does parking work on the day of the race?

A: Parking has been a big concern for our participants in past years. This year, we have worked hard this year with Texas Medical Center Parking to provide subsidized parking for all of our participants. When registering for the race, you will be asked if you wish to pay the subsidized rate at that time, which will be charged along with your registration cost. We will monitor who has paid through your bib number, and validate your parking chip that you will take from any of the parking garages on the day of the race. More information on parking can be found under our Race Information tab.

Can I register the day of the event?

A: Yes, you will be able to register the morning of the race. 

How early should I arrive on the day of the race?

A: If you have already registered and picked up your packet, we ask that you arrive at the TMC commons by 8 a.m. This will give you time to drop off small items via our gear check service as well as enjoy pre-race activities.  However, if you have kids running in the 1K, still need to register, or still need to pick up your packet, we ask that you arrive by 7:30 a.m. at the latest so that we can start both the 1K and the 5K on time.

Can I transfer my registration to another individual if I cannot make it?

A: No, we do not allow transferring of registration from one individual to another for any reason.

Can I sign someone else up?

A: If you are interested in registering another individual, you may do so with their permission on our registration page found under our Registration tab.

How can I view my race results when I finish the race?

A: Race results will be immediately after completion of the race right next to the finish line, and can be accessed several days after the race under our results page online, found under our Results tab.

Do you give refunds?

A: No, we unfortunately cannot give refunds after registration has been completed for any reason, and registration cannot be transferred to another individual.
