Is there a course time limit?
Technically, no. But, if it takes you longer than two hours and 30 mins to complete the 10 mile event or an hour to complete the 5k, we do not guarantee that the electronic timing system will still be operational (the finish line will be up until the last participant crosses, but your finish time may not be electronically recorded after 9:30 AM). And if you are participating in the 10 mile or 10k at a pace of 15 min/mile or slower, please be advised the La Palma and Yorba Linda Blvd intersection will no longer be closed to allow participants to cross; you will need to cross with the signal lights and follow all prevailing traffic laws.

Yes and yes!

Is there a place to stash my stuff during the race?
Yes! There will be a continuously staffed gear check booth on race day near the registration area for all race participants. Please attach the gear check tearoff from your bib to your bag. You will need to show your bib to the gear check attendants after the race to claim your belongings.
Where do proceeds from this event go?
Plymouth Rock ‘n’ Run is hosted by ResearchforCure, a 501(c)(3) charity that supports spinal cord injury research at the Reeve-Irvine Research Center (RIRC) at UC Irvine. Most of our event proceeds are paid directly to RIRC via ResearchforCure (tax ID/EIN #68-0478281 ). The remaining dollars are donated to athletic and scholastic programs at our local schools — organizations that very generously provide student volunteers to work the event and otherwise provide support. No one on the ResearchforCure staff is paid or otherwise compensated for their professional services and the time and effort it takes to bring this annual Thanksgiving Day event to the community.
How does the fundraising thing work?
During the registration process, you will be asked if you would like to fundraise for the event. If you select ‘Yes,’ you will be able to fill out a short form to establish your own fundraising account and will be emailed instructions and a unique link you can provide to family, friends, and colleagues asking them to donate on your behalf. Your fundraising page can be personalized with your own message and photos. If you’d simply like to make a donation yourself when you register – with or without signing up to fundraise — that option is available as well.
Can someone fundraise without registering to run or walk in the event?
Yes! Go HERE to bypass the event registration page and establish a fundraising account.
