Can I reserve a shirt in a certain size?
If you register prior to October 13, 2021, yes, we will have your t-shirt in the size you selected. If you wait to register closer to race day, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a shirt.
Can I get a refund if I register but then I don’t run or walk?
No. We plan the race based on the number of registered participants, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. If, however, you register and do not run or walk, you may still pick up your race packet and shirt and join us in the fun.
Can I run or walk with headphones or ear buds?
Yes, you can. We do not restrict the use of headphones or ear buds.
Who hosts this event?
From 2012-2017, the Dan River Autism Awareness Autism 5k was led by its founding Race Director with a planning committee of parents, educators, autism professionals from the Center for Pediatric Therapies and volunteers from the Danville Running Club. In 2018, the Junior Wednesday Club adopted the event as its annual fall project. Moving the event from April to November led to the renaming of the event to the Wobble & Gobble Autism Awareness 5k.
