Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my onsite race registration since the race was converted to virtual?
Race registrations are nonrefundable.  If you are unable to participate in the event, your registration fee will go to Strides for Peace as a donation. Since the 2021 Race Against Gun Violence cannot be held in Grant Park due to Covid concerns, all onsite registrations will be converted to the virtual race format in which registrants can participate at time and place of their choosing. EnMotive will automatically and at no additional cost mail race packets to all onsite race registrants at the address provided during registration.
