Am I guaranteed a t-shirt with registration?

No. You are only guaranteed a t-shirt if you purchase one at the time of registration.

Am I guaranteed my self-designated t-shirt size?

Yes, however, t-shirts are ordered well in advance of the race, so if in the off-chance we run out of your size, please send an email to lawyershaveheartdc@heart.org with your first name, last name, phone number, address, and desired shirt size postrace. We will place any supplementary orders by July 1, 2019 and send out shirts no later than August 1, 2019.

Are t-shirt sizes gender specific?

Yes.

If my child plans to run with me, do they have to purchase a standard race entry?

If the child will not be in a stroller and participating in the race, we ask they register online.

Should anything happen, we would like them to be wearing a bib and have an emergency contact information entered into the system.

Are kid’s t-shirts available with registration?

No. All t-shirts and technical running shirts are adult sizes.

 

DISCOUNT CODES/COUPON CODES

 

What’s a “coupon code”? How’s that different from a “discount code”?

Coupon codes are an arrangement for a firm/company to pay (in part of in full) their employee’s registration for the race. If your company is interested in providing a coupon code for its employees, contact Stephanie Maher at stephanie.maher@heart.org.

Discount codes range from 10-15% off current registration prices and offered through e-blasts and social media. These discounts usually occur around holidays (Valentine’s Day, April Fool’s Day, St. Patty’s Day, etc.). Follow us on social media so you don’t miss an opportunity to save!

Facebook: @lawyershaveheart10K | Twitter: @LHH10K | Instagram: @HeartofGWR

When does my firm/company’s coupon code expire?

All coupon codes expire on Friday, May 31stst at 11:55PM. This allows our team to pull all coupon code data, pre-assign bibs & pre-pack all race materials for teams of 10+ to be available at packet pickup, as well as create invoices for all teams using coupon code, to be sent out race week.

Can someone still join a corporate team after the coupon code has expired?

Yes, but they will have to pay for their registration personally and request a reimbursement from their employer. Their bib is also not guaranteed to be included with the pre-organized team bibs.

When does my discount code expire?

All discount codes expire on Friday, May 31st at 11:55pm.

When will I receive an invoice for the registration associated with the coupon code?

All team captains will receive a final invoice no later than Tuesday, June 11th at 11:59PM.

When are coupon code payments due?

Friday, June 21st, 2019

 

DONATIONS

 

Online, I can only donate $25 or more. Why? And where can I make a smaller one?

The AHA appreciates any size donation. Online donations are required to be $25 or more to offset the cost of processing.

However, we are happy to take smaller donations in the form of cash or checks. Those can be mailed/made payable to:

American Heart Association

ATTN: Lawyers Have Heart

4601 North Fairfax Drive, Suite 700

Arlington, VA 22203

Can I bring cash/check donations I’ve collected to the race or packet pick-up?

Yes. Cash or checks can be put in an envelope and turned in at packet pick-up or at the registration area from 6AM—8AM on race day.

Are registration costs for the race tax deductible?

No. Registration costs cover goods and services for the race. The fair market value is equal to the cost of registration; therefore, they are not tax deductible. Any donation made above the cost of registration is 100% tax deductible. Please consult your tax attorney for further information.

Do I have to fundraise to participate in LHH?

No, you do not have to fundraise to participate. During the registration process, a $150 fundraising goal is associated with each person. That goal is not required, but highly encouraged. All proceeds go directly to the American Heart Association and you will be helping us support our mission; to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

 

PACKET PICKUP

 

I work for a participating firm/company, do I need to go to packet pickup?

If your firm/company is either a top sponsor, or if they have a team of 10+ participants (by Friday, May 31st), your race materials may already be packed! Ask your Team Captain or check your team page for your # of teammates! Otherwise, you will need to pick up your own materials at packet pickup or the day of the race.

At packet pick-up, can I pick up a friend’s bib?

Yes. All you must do is ask us when you get to packet pick-up. We do not need a note or ID to do this. We take you at your word that you’ve coordinated with your friend.

 

RACE MORNING

 

If needed, how will I receive event information on race day (ex. Emergency and Weather plans)?

“LHHALERTS” to 515-55 to subscribe to Lawyers Have Heart Text Alerts. Message and Data rates may apply. Text “HELP” for help, and “STOP” to end subscription.

What time should I arrive at the race?

The 10K Race, 5K Run & 5K Walk start at 7:15AM. Runners and walkers will need to be lined up by 7:00AM. We suggest that you allow yourself enough time to find parking and line up at the proper pace sign. Please allow for additional time if you are registering or picking up your bib on site.

Can I take the metro or public transportation to the race?

No, the metro and buses do not open until 7AM. There is no metro stop at the Harbour. As a result, taking public transportation will not allow you enough time to get to the race. Please refer to the question below for parking information.

What is a pace sign?

Pace signs will help you determine when to line up at the start line, based on how fast you run a mile. Fastest runners will be at the front and walkers will be at the back.

Is there a bag check at the race?

Bag check is available for CLEAR BAGS near the registration and bib pick up tents, beginning at 6AM. It is monitored by AHA volunteers and staff. However, please leave all valuables at home as the AHA cannot accept liability for lost, damaged, or stolen items.

I have a large party team and we would like to have brunch after the race. Can you make recommendations?

TBD

Yes. Strollers and dogs are welcome on both the walk and run courses. We only ask that you please hang towards the back of the corral when starting. Also, there are no street sweepers on the road, so please bring appropriate clean-up materials.

I would like to change the race distance I am currently registered for. What should I do?

If you decide to change your event on race day, please report to the trouble shooting line prior to the race at registration and state that you would like to switch events. If you decide on-course at the 10K/5K split to run the 5K Run instead of 10K Race (or vice versa), the timing mats will pick this up, but your results may need extra time to appear accurately.

If you registered for the 5K Walk and would like to switch to a timed event (10K Race or 5K Run) and already have your bib, you will need a new bib. On race day, please report to the trouble shooting line prior to the race at registration and state that you would like to switch events. You will be issued a new bib.

If you registered for the 10K Race and would like to switch to the 5K Run you will need to submit your request to lawyershaveheartdc@heart.org or call (703) 248-1714 no later than Friday, June 7th at 3:00PM.

Where is the timing chip?

The timing chip is located on the back of your running bib. There is a timing mat at the start/finish line and at mile 5 on the 10K course. Please be sure to run over the timing mats to ensure the accurate results.

I can no longer attend the race but would like to transfer my bib number to another person. How can I do that?
