Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k FAQs

Registration

  • What is the difference between Seeded and Non-Seeded Waves?
    – Seeded:  Seeded Waves require qualifying proof of time. Seeded waves are reserved for runners who finish faster than 63 minutes. You may use the following items as proof of time:  

2021 or 2022 Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k finish time
– Results from any other race since January 1, 2021:
– Finisher’s certificate, printed race result, website results or a newspaper clipping
-We can convert any race, from a 5k up to a marathon, into an 10k Time Conversion Chart.
-If you don’t have race results you may email ([email protected]) a picture of your running app, watch, or treadmill.  Make sure to include time and distance.

– Non-Seeded:  Predicted finish times over 63 minutes.

  • What do you mean by direct link?  In order for a our computer program to verify your time you must provide a direct link to your results.  If you don’t use a link we can use to verify your time you run the risk of being reassigned to a different wave.  If you are unsure about your link please email ([email protected]) it to us for verification.
  • How can I purchase multiple entries?  You can purchase a Bulk Entry Code to pay for five or more entries.  Bulk Entry is not a group discount. You still pay the full registration fee for each person – it just allows you to pay for a large number of people up front. It is then the responsibility of each individual to register themselves (using the Bulk Entry Code in lieu of payment) for the race. Check back for the Bulk Entry form in early December.
    • Does purchasing the bulk registration code, register me for race? No, you do need to use of the codes you purchased to register yourself.
    • What happens to unused bulk registrations? There are no refunds for unused bulk registrations. Entries are non-refundable and cannot be switch from one person to another.
