To register, click here and click the big orange ‘REGISTER!’ button. You will be taken to the RaceWire website to register. From there, you can choose to register as an INDIVIDUAL, create a TEAM, or JOIN AN EXISTING TEAM. Make a selection and complete your registration. If you’ve registered for a RaceWire event before, you will have the option of filling in information according to a “profile” from the past, or you can type in the information. You’ll get the chance to overlook your information and either confirm it, or add an additional registrant. Next, fill out your payment information and you will be all set. Look for an email confirmation.

Unfortunately we are not offering the Satellite 5K as an option this year.

Thank you for signing up to be a fundraiser for the BAMFI HWB5K! During the registration process, you will have the option of making a donation and/or creating a fundraiser. While registering, under ‘Sign-up to Fundraise’, select “Yes!” After you’ve registered, you can go into your account and edit your fundraiser. If you have a team of fundraisers, one person on your team will need to create the fundraiser for the group when they register. The team will use the same link to solicit funds.

Login to your athlete account at RaceWire (www.racewire.com) and go to “My Page”. Scroll to the bottom of your page to see ‘BAMFI Hope Without Boundaries 5K Run/Walk’. If you signed up to fundraise you will see an icon that looks like a dollar sign underneath the race. Click that. It will bring you to your page. You can see how much you’ve raised and make edits. Click “Click to edit profile”. You can edit the personal message that people see when they come to your page. You can change your fundraising target dollar amount. You can also change the image on your page and the message people see when they donate. You can change what is visible to people visiting your page too. Be sure to click save! You will also find your link to share with friends, family, and fellow teammates here.

If you have a team of fundraisers, one person on your team (i.e., The Team Captain) will need to create the fundraiser for the group when they register. As additional team members sign up and join your team, they will use the same link to solicit funds.

Login to your athlete account at RaceWire and go to “My Page”. Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see ‘BAMFI Hope Without Boundaries 5K Run/Walk’. If you registered to be a team captain, you will see an icon that looks like two people underneath the event you registered for. Click that. It will bring you to your team information. As an admin (Team Captain), you can edit the team name, see the list of team members, and edit/delete them. (This will not delete them from the event – only from your team).

During the registration process, you will have the option of joining an existing team. While registering, under ‘Team Registration Style’, select “Join a Team.” On the next screen, click the drop-down arrow under “Select Your Team” and select the team that you would like to join. Continue with the registration process.
