REGISTRATION

How do I register for the SummeRun & Walk?

You can register online for the SummeRun & Walk – you can form a team, join a team, or register as an individual participant. Registration is only $35 this year, and we encourage all participants if possible to make a goal for donations to start their SummeRun fundraising campaign and support the fight against ovarian cancer. All donations are 100% tax deductible. If you participatd with us last year, you may use your same sign-on creditials. 

Will there be event t-shirts this year for the SummeRun & Walk event?

Yes!  We will be offering a 2022 SummeRun participant t-shirt this year to each registered individual. The shirts will be given to participants at the event. 

Will ovarian cancer survivors receive a special survivor t-shirt for the SummeRun & Walk event?

Yes!  All ovarian cancer survivors will receive a teal survivor t-shirt, regardless of fundraising.  Survivors t-shirts will be given to participants on event day and our survivor shirt order will be based on information they entered during registration.

Is it possible to track my 5K time and submit it for the event?

Yes! We encourage runners to track their time. Click here to join our Strava SummeRun Club to track your walk or run with us. (You will have to download the free Strava app, available to most smart phones or smart watches.) Be sure to get your run/walk in by Monday the 18th! 

May I register other people online?

You may only register members of your immediate family who are under the age of 18, and you may do so using your email address for each of them. Anyone who is not a family member or who is over 18 must register themselves with a unique email address. 

May I use my login credentials from previous years?

Yes, but only from 2020 and 2021. Any older credentials will not work and you will need to re-register. 

PARTICIPANT CENTER

What is and how do I access my Participant Center?

The Participant Center is the online portal where you can check your fundraising progress, send solicitations and thank you emails, update your Personal Fundraising Page and your Team Fundraising Page (if you are the Team Captain). Need help accessing your Participant Center?  Read this helpful PDF or contact summerun@rivkin.org.

How can I make sure the donation I’m sending will be credited to my team?

Please include the name of the participant you are supporting in the memo area of the check. If you are supporting a team more generally, please include the team name in the memo area, and be aware that team donations are credited to the team captain for bookkeeping purposes. You may also make a general donation to the SummeRun.

My donation didn’t go through, or isn’t showing up on the webpage. What should I do?

Please be patient. Donations typically take a couple of hours to show up on the website. If you have already waited to see if it will display, contact us (summerun@rivkin.org or 206-805-4416)! We want to make sure all of your hard work and generous donations show up on your page within a reasonable amount of time. 

My donation was applied to the wrong person. What should I do?

If your donation is showing on the website, but it is not credited to the intended participant, please email or call us, and we will be happy to fix it (summerun@rivkin.org or 206-805-4416). 

What information will I be able to keep for next year?

All the information (text, photos, contacts, and anything else) on your Personal Fundraising Page will be stored there for next year. Please move anything you would like to keep onto your Personal Page from your Team Page. Team Page information does not carry over.

What does the SummeRun & Walk course map look like at Seward Park?

We are excited to be in our new location at Seward Park, located at 5900 Lake Washingtion Blvd. View the course map here.

I heard Lake Washington Blvd will be closed on July 17 for a "Biking Weekend". How will I get to Seward Park?

Seward Park will still be accessible via Rainier Ave and S Orcas St. Your phone's GPS should route you correctly to the park, which has only one entrance.

What about parking at Seward Park?

Parking is limited at Seward Park. We are encouraging participants to carpool or take a Lyft or Uber to and from the event. Participants with mobility challenges can be dropped off at the main roundabout. There are several parking lots in the park as well as street parking in the residential areas leading into the park. Check back closer to the event for a parking map showing the lots within the park.
