Pro Tips for Registration

Registration is first come, first served – and spots are going to go quickly!

For those of you who are counting down the seconds until registration opens, we’ve created some “Pro Tips”.
1.Set your alarm for 11:59am EST.
We expect the race to fill up extremely quickly. Clear your calendar, make a ‘lunch meeting’ for yourself, and don’t forget!
2. Finish your registration as quickly as possible!
Your spot is NOT guaranteed when you start the registration process. It is guaranteed when you complete the form, and your credit card is charged. If the race fills up while you’re still attempting to register, you will be locked out. Make sure to complete your registration ASAP! 
3. Returning Runners: Test Your Log-In Credentials
There is NOTHING worse that forgetting your password in the moment you need it most. If you ran the Harpoon 5-Miler last year, or if you’ve ever run a race with RunSignUp before, you will already have a profile set up with them. Test your username and password NOW to make sure you don’t get locked out.
4. New Runners: Create a RunSignUp profile ahead of time!
Head to NOW and create a runner profile here. It will save you a few steps on Registration Day— your personal information will already be entered when you start to register.
5. Have all of your personal information ready at noon!
This includes your credit card number and Emergency Contact info. Save yourself the extra seconds of riffling through your wallet or scrolling through your phone. 
6. Become a Friend of Harpoon NOW.
Friends of Harpoon receive an extra beer ticket on race day. If you want to become a Friend of Harpoon, don’t attempt to do it during registration--- it’s only going to add an extra step and slow you down. Click here to sign up today!
7. Fundraisers and 4-Pack Teams: Do NOT worry about assembling your teams just yet!
Focus on getting yourself signed up (and, of course, badgering your friends to sign up). You can assemble your teams once registration is full.
