We very strongly encourage participants to pick up their bib and shirt on Friday or Saturday at the packet pick-up to alleviate race morning delays. There is NO onsite registration on Sunday.

Photo ID Required

All participants must present a photo ID to pick up their bib. Participants may pick up for friends and family, but must provide a copy of the ID or a photo of the ID on their phone for verification.

Military Discount

The Pell Bridge Run extends its thanks to those serving our country. We invite active, reserve members and veterans of all military branches to email us to receive a discounted registration.


T-shirt size is subject to availability. Participants that arrive to registration early have the best opportunity to secure the size they would like. Choosing a size on our online registration does not guarantee that your size will be available at packet pick-up.

Donate Your Shirt to Charity

You are able to opt-out of receiving your event t-shirt when registering. We will then, in turn, donate the cost of producing that shirt to the Citizens Pell Bridge Run’s non-profit beneficiaries, and announce the donation amount from this initiative following the event.

Registration Policies:

Refunds — 30 Days

Refunds on your registration may be requested up to 30 days before the event by emailing [email protected]. Refunds will not be granted if a request is made less than 30 days prior to the event. No exceptions.

Extreme Weather Policy

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
