Make your life easier and skip the lines! All you need to do is choose the packet shipping option during registration and we will have your race packet shipped directly to your front door for only $14.95! Your packet includes your race shirt, bib, and more!

If you opt for packet shipping during registration, there is no requirement to attend packet pick up. Packet shipping is a convenient option for those with tight schedules.

Please be sure to verify your mailing address during the registration process, as we are not responsible for misdirected packets. We will close packet mailing two weeks before the race, so be sure to sign up early! Packets will be shipped out the two to one week before the race.

*Packet shipping is per registrant, not per order.

TIMING & RESULTS

The Bunny Rock 10K & 5K is an officially timed event using the disposable B-Tag timing system. Timing chips are attached directly to the back of your bib number and are to remain adhered for the duration of the event. In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is:

Clearly visible on the front of the torso
Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
Pinned in all four corners
Not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

There will be timing clocks at the start and finish lines. Results will be posted below live during the event and official results will be posted HERE.


GEAR CHECK

Gear Check will be available for all race participants starting at 7:30 am.

Before the race starts, you can leave a bag with your personal items at our Gear Check tent. Please make sure to use the provided tear off on your race bib and zip tie it to your bag. Our volunteers will need this so they can quickly and easily help you claim your bag after the race is over.

Any gear not picked up by on race day will be transported to our main office in Palatine, IL. Items not claimed within 30 days will be donated to a local charity.


REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES

Since the Easter Bunny has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.


RACE CHARITY
