Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to create an account with RunSignUp?

Yes, you’ll need a RunSignUp account to register for St. Luke’s FitOne. If you participated in FitOne from 2016 onward, simply log in to your existing RunSignUp account.

Can I change my email address, t-shirt size or race distance?

Yes, you can change this information until August 31, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. through your RunSignUp account.

Is my credit card information secure?

Absolutely! RunSignUp does not retain any credit card information.

Is my registration fee tax-deductible?

No, your registration fee helps defray event operational hard costs (city permitting fees; police, security and emergency support services; neighborhood notifications and traffic control, etc.) and is not considered tax-deductible. However, any amount that you choose to donate to St. Luke’s Children’s above the registration fee is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Can I register others for FitOne?

If you are someone’s legal guardian, yes, please register them. All individuals on the course, even children in strollers, must be registered for the event. However, participants over age 18 years must sign their own waivers. When you register others and use your personal email address or home address instead of theirs, we have trouble getting waivers signed, so please encourage them to register on their own. If you are a team leader, please encourage others to register themselves and make sure they choose your team during the online registration process.

Do I need to register my child if they are riding in a stroller?

Yes, all individuals on the racecourse on race day, even children in strollers, must be registered for the event for safety and liability reasons. Volunteers will be checking for bibs on race day, so please do not skip this important step!

What percentage of my registration fee benefits the community?

Your registration fee helps pay the hard costs of operating the race. Proceeds above and beyond event operational hard costs are donated to projects that improve physical activity, nutrition and education to promote lifelong healthy habits—ultimately creating healthy children who become healthy adults. Your participation in St. Luke's FitOne, as well as individual and team fundraising, and personal giving, all directly benefit healthy living in our community.

Can I transfer my registration?

If you have registered for the race and cannot run, you can transfer your bib to a friend. Please email [email protected] to initiate the transfer.

Are refunds available?

No. All event registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable to next year’s event, no exceptions. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected business or family emergency, pregnancy, etc.

Is water provided on the courses?

The main water station is located at the Boise Train Depot. Bottled water is also available at the finish festival. Participants in the 10K and half-marathon races will pass through multiple water/aid stations. If you require additional water, we encourage you to carry it with you. Electrolyte drinks and energy gel will also be provided on the 10K and half marathon courses.

Where are the restrooms?

Over 100 portable toilets are distributed throughout the race experiences. You'll find them in Capitol Park (near the starting line) and Ann Morrison Park (near the finish line), at each half marathon aid station, and along the courses at the Boise Library and Boise Train Depot.

Is there a shorter course available if I can't complete the 5K?

Yes! The FitOne.2 course is 1.2 miles and runs along the Greenbelt from the Boise Library to Ann Morrison Park. (If you’re interested in this course, simply register for the 5K.) This course avoids the hill leading to the Boise Depot and rejoins the regular 5K course just prior to the finish line. Golf carts are often available here for participants who might need additional help.

What is NOT allowed on the course?

For safety reasons, the following are NOT allowed on the course: dogs (with the exception of service animals), weapons, bicycles, roller skates/blades, scooters (non-motorized, gas or electric) and skateboards. Please use your best judgment.

Are strollers and wheelchairs allowed on the courses?

Yes, strollers and wheelchairs are allowed on all courses. However, for the safety of our participants, bikes and scooters must be left at home.

Can I bring my dog?

For safety reasons, pets are NOT allowed (with the exception of service animals). We do recommend taking your pup out for See Spot Walk in October as a pet-friendly alternative!

Will my race packet be mailed to me?

No, all participants will need to attend packet pickup at Ann Morrison Park between Wednesday, Sept. 18 - Friday, Sept. 20 from noon-7 p.m.

What if I can't run the race this year?

If you have registered for the race and cannot run, you can transfer your bib to a friend. Please email [email protected] to initiate the transfer. Refunds are not available for any reason.

What happens if there is inclement weather or poor air quality on race day?

St. Luke’s FitOne staff will be in communication with the local weather authority (KTVB) and/or Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regarding potential inclement weather or air quality prior to the start of the half marathon, 10K and 5K races. The St. Luke’s FitOne Crisis Communications Team will make a determination whether to cancel the race based on information obtained by the National Weather Service and/or DEQ and specifically related to air quality, and in consultation with St. Luke’s pulmonologist, Dr. Jim Souza.

Is gear check available on race day?

Yes, gear check is available for 10K and half marathon participants. Look for the Norco medical van in front of the capitol building on race day. The van will be parked in Ann Morrison Park after the race.

Where is the Lost and Found?

Lost and Found is located at the Information/Volunteer Check-in tent in Ann Morrison Park. Reach out to FitOne staff at [email protected] for any post-event lost and found inquiries.

Where is the Family/Friends reunion area?

Reunite with your friends and family near the circle of trees inside Ann Morrison Park off Americana Boulevard. Look for flags with the first letter of your last name and prearrange with your family and friends to meet you there. Lost children will be accompanied by two official event volunteers to the Information/Volunteer Check-in tent for pick up by parents.
