    i’ve been looking into the run for a while and i’m definitely planning to join up and get a full membership (just gotta get my bad 19 year old knee prepared haha). i just have a few questions; i’m curious as to if you only take payment in person because i mainly use PayPal so it would be neat to be able to use that and pay the full membership (i can pay in person either way but just out of curiosity). secondly, should i bring both a black and white jersey/shirt when coming to a game? i figured it’s probably safer to bring both if there aren’t set teams. and lastly, should i email ahead of time before dropping in?

    thank you! sorry for all the questions

      Hey Wade!

      Awesome!! It’ll be awesome to have u Run with us.

      Etransfer tends to be the easiest. We’ve taken PayPal before. But it’s a bit of a pain. We also take cash as well.

      Yup we require players to bring black and white jerseys. We also carry a couple extras just in case.

      U can book a spot 2 days before game days in the events tab on our site. First Run is always free for u to try it out tho.

      Lemme know if u have any more questions and I’ll be happy to answer them.

    i just tried to post a comment a bit ago and im not sure if it posted or not because dont see it. i didn’t have an account when i posted it, hopefully it doesn’t double post or anything. i just have a few questions because im planning to join in real soon

    i saw something under the memberships section on the site saying something about paying prior to game-time, and i was wondering if it’s possible to pay with PayPal or a card prior to dropping in. secondly, should i email first before dropping in for my first time? i dont wanna mess up any teams or anything like that. and lastly should i just bring both a black and white jersey to be safe

    thank you! looking forward to running with y’all

      Sorry, we just had to approve it on our end. I think I got a bunch of your questions answered.

      Also, do you have whatsapp? We have a group chat on there where we post stats and highlights, as well as talk ball.

      It seems to be the easiest way to get a hold of everyone.
