Yes! You will receive everything from the race that the race promises which usually consists of a race t-shirt and goody bag. Finishers of 1/2 marathons typically receive a race medal. Beyond that, 185 will give all 185 runners a free t-shirt so they can wear on race day, even if the runner does not meet minimum fundraising requirements.
How much do I have to raise?
Each race and race distance is different. As an example, for the 2016 St. Michaels Running Festival the following fundraising minimums apply:
5K - $300
What happens if I can't raise the minimum fundraising amount by race day?
If you don't reach the fundraising minimum by race morning, your credit card on file with your fundraising page will be charged for the difference. As an example, if you were a 185 Charity Runner for the 2016 St. Michaels Running Festival 5K and you only raised $250, your card would be charged $50.
