I was going to register for Runch but I noticed that there is no option for a 10k. Is this year’s Champagne Runch only a 5k?
Due to city permitting and ongoing construction around Orange County Great Park, we are limited to a 5k course within the park. However, all our runners that want to run the 10k can loop around the 5k course to reach the 10k distance.
Realistically, there is no way we can keep track of all our runners and the # of laps they are running on the closed course.
What is included in my registration?
All runners participating in Runch will receive:
-5- course brunch catered by 5 different restaurants; all serving one signature dish that will make up the 5 courses.
-Complimentary glass of champagne/mimosa to celebrate crossing the finish line
-Donut Carb loading station catered by California Donuts
-Runch finisher t-shirt
-Custom Champagne Club race medal
-Outdoor photo booths along the run/ brunch area to capture all the memories (free prints included).
Can children participate?
Children 10+ are more than welcome to join in on the fun as long as they are accompanied by a parent. Registration would be the same for children as it is for adults. (champagne can be substituted for any other juice beverage).
Can I combine coupon codes?
Unfortunately, only one coupon code can be applied per registration.
Last year I was able to upgrade my shirt at checkout but I don’t see that option anymore. Do you still offer shirt upgrades?
All runners will receive the same shirt design, but will have the option to choose between men or women’s style cuts. This year, we will be releasing exclusive Champagne Runch apparel for both men and women, which will be available in our online store and at the event!
Can I transfer my registration to another person?
Yes. Last day to transfer registration is March 4th. A $5.00 transfer fee will apply. Simply log onto your Active Network account and transfer the registration.
Can I volunteer?
Yes! We can never have too many volunteers! Volunteer sign up will be available on our registration page starting January 1st.
Is this an official timed racing event?
Champagne Runch is not an official timed event. This run is more about spending time, than it is about finishing times.
For runners that wish to record their finishing times, we encourage you to bring a timing watch or other time keeping device.
Is this run an official USATF event?
Run course has not been measured by the USATF. Run course is based on GPS and may not reflect the true 5k/10k distance.
Am I allowed to run with my pet?
As much as we love animals, no pets will be allowed on the event grounds during Runch.
Are strollers allowed on the run course?
Of course! We encourage all parents to bring the young ones along for the ride! All liability waivers must be signed prior to the start of the run.
Do you offer vegetarian brunch options?
All the restaurants that we’ve brought on board will be serving brunch dishes that are already vegetarian friendly, or can be easily made to be vegetarian friendly! If you have a diet preference, simply let them know at the food window and they can prepare the same dish without the meat component.
Last year, all of our vendors provided a vegetarian friendly option.
Do you offer vegan brunch options?
We currently do not offer any vegan friendly brunch options.
What if I don’t want to eat my carb load donut during the run?
If runners don’t want to eat their carb load donut during the run, an additional tent will be available in the brunch area for runners that want to get their donut after crossing the finish line.
What if I want to have brunch with my family and friends that come to watch but aren’t participating in the run? Can they bring food?
No outside food or drinks will be allowed in the event other than bottled water or sports drinks. We strongly encourage friends and family to register with their friends and family in order to enjoy the full Runch experience. Participants are more than welcome to walk the 5k or even forego the run altogether if they wish to just participate in the finish line brunch festivities!
Can someone else pick my race packet up for me?
Yes, please have them bring a copy of your registration along with a photocopy or picture (phone camera) of your ID. Your race packet contains everything you will need to participate in Runch. We are not responsible for lost race packets/wristbands. No additional race packets will be given out if lost or stolen. No exceptions. Once the race packet is signed for we cannot be held responsible.
What happens if there is bad weather?
Runch will go on rain or shine! However, in the case that weather is really bad and deemed unsafe by the proper authorities, Runch may be cancelled and all registrations would be transferred to a future event. Notice of cancellation to our runners would be on the morning of the event. All runners must sign the “inclement weather” waiver before participating in Runch.
Will you have a bag check at the venue?
Yes, we will have bag check-in available at Runch. Race bibs will include a peel off tab that runners can use to check-in a small bag.
