What is the date of the relay?
The relay takes place September 21st - September 27th, 2020
What is the cost?
For the first 2250 registrants, the cost is $35 and includes an exclusive gaiter. Once the gaiters are sold out, the cost will drop to $30.
How many participants can be on a team?
Since the Relay covers a virtual course of 680 miles, we suggest creating a team of 15-20 participants.
Looking for a team to join?
If you search #WomxnRunTheVote on Instagram or Twitter, you will see info about teams with open spots. Current teams made up entirely of unaffiliated runners (welcome all-comers!) are Team Iron, Team Cobalt, and Team Mercury. If you have more questions about which teams are looking for runners, please email in to firstname.lastname@example.org!
What is included in registration?
Registration includes a virtual race experience where teams of 15-20 will cover the 680-mile journey, learn about Civil Rights historic sites and people, and raise money for Black Voters Matter. The first 2250 people who purchase a race package will also receive an exclusive Womxn Run the Vote neck gaiter.
How much of my registration cost will go directly to Black Voters Matter?
Each $30 race registration contributes $23 directly to Black Voters Matter. We urge you to learn more about Black Voters Matter and donate directly to their powerful organization. The donation through your relay registration will be to Black Voters Matter's unrestricted 501c4 fund. If you are looking for a 501c3 tax receipt and corporate matching form for your donation, please donate directly on their website.
Can I make an additional donation to Black Voters Matter?
Yes, Black Voters Matter is an organization dedicated to increasing power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities. They would appreciate any and all donations. For more information check out https://blackvotersmatterfund.org/
How do I claim my race swag - gaiter?
Within 3 business days after registering, all relay participants will receive an email from email@example.com with instructions on how to redeem your gaiter order. Please note, Womxn Run the Vote gaiters will ship out starting the first week of September.
I see this is a team event, can I just run by myself?
Since the relay covers 680 miles in 7 days, it will require a team effort. If you do not have a team to run with, when you register you will be able to choose a team with vacancies to join!
What happens if my team doesn't "finish" the relay (doesn't cover all 680 miles during the allotted time)?
No adverse consequences! You'll receive emails along the route triggered by mileposts you pass, so if you don't finish the route you won't receive those emails or the "you finished!" email. But there will be no penalty - this is a relay to increase knowledge and raise money for Black Voters Matter.
How do I share Womxn Run the Vote on social media?
After registration and during the relay, you will receive emails with shareable images and information. Feel free to post those on social media using the hashtag #WomxnRunTheVote
