I registered for the Selma Historic 5K Marathon, but I’m not going to be able to make it. Can I get my money back?
Unfortunately, there are no refunds. Know that your registration fee is going to support the Michael Johnson 93-90 Foundation. We are all about teaching kids the importance of capitalizing on their abilities with technological and educational programs, increasing their awareness of proper nutrition and exercise for healthier bodies to avoid obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
I cannot run but would like to support the event. What should I do?

Will the race be timed?
The 5K will be timed. The 1-mile race will not be timed. For the 5K, your time will start when you cross over the starting line. Your personal time will be available immediately following your completion of the race and the results and standings shortly following. A chip will be attached to your bib and will activate when you cross the pads at the start and finish lines. It is very important that you only cross the start and finish line once. If you are planning to run alongside another friend or family member you MUST remove your bib. Failure to do so may result in your time being erased.
