How much of my race registration goes to the charity, Tri 4 Schools?

100% of proceeds from the Birdie Derby go to Tri 4 Schools, specifically the Grants 4 Schools program, to support the health and wellness of children inside and outside the classroom. Learn more about Tri 4 Schools programs, financial assistance, and grants by visiting

I registered for one race, but now I’d like to do the OTHER distance. May I switch races?

You may not make a change to a team registration after team close which is usually in late October.  You can make a change to the distance if you are running as an individual.  You can do this via email or at packet pick-up.

You are free to run either race with the bib you obtain at packet pick-up — but if you decide to change to the other distance, note that your timing will not be correct. 

I want to field a team, but some people want to do the 5k and others want to do the 10k, and others want to walk. Is this OK?

Yes, but be aware that your team will NOT be eligible to compete for the team awards unless there are at least five people running in the same category/distance. To be eligible for team awards, at least five members must be registered under the same race category. Teams are eligible to win under both race categories (10K and 5K) only if at least five members are registered under both race categories. If your team does not wish to compete for awards you still must have five team members but you are free to have these members in any or all race categories.
