Bearathon

1. Who is allowed to participate in the Sic 'Em 6K?
Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are only allowing current Baylor students, faculty, staff, and their immediate household to participate in the Sic 'Em 6K this year. You must have a valid Baylor email (@baylor.edu) to complete the registration form, and we recommend supplying a Baylor ID with registration also. Those external to the Baylor campus and who are not a part of the immediate household of a Baylor student, faculty, and staff are not allowed to participate.

2. How much is the Sic 'Em 6K?
Standard registration fee for Baylor student, staff, and faculty is $25. Standard registration fee for dependents aged 10-18 is $15. Younger dependents (aged 0-9) are able to participate for free, but will not receive an included item from registration. Late registration fees begin Sunday, April 4th, and are $30 for adults and $20 for dependents aged 10+.

3. What time does the race begin this year?
This year, we plan on having walkers and runners participate in different waves to cut down on close contact. We expect the first wave of runners to begin at 9:00AM and will release each wave in 10-15 minute increments.

4. Can I register in-person the day of the race?
Yes, we are allowing day-of registration for the event. In-day registration fees are $40 for adults (18+) and $30 for dependents.

5. Is there a half marathon option available for runners?
Due to COVID-19 precautions and limited resources, we are unable to host an in-person or a virtual half marathon. Instead, we have focused all of our time and resources into hosting the best in-person race that we can.

6. Are pets allowed in the race?
Yes! For the first time, we are allowing dogs to participate in the Sic 'Em 6K. All dogs must be kept on a leash at all times and must be noted on the registration form. Failure to do so will result in dismissal of both the runner and the dog.

7. When will I receive my Bearathon gear?
We expect for items to not be picked up nor received at the race. Instead, items will be shipped after the date of the race. One item is include with each adult registration form completed.

8. What if I want some Sic 'Em 6K gear but I am unable to participate?
All participants are allowed to select one included item during registration. If you would like any of the available Bearathon or Sic 'Em 6K gear but are unable to participate, please email StudentFoundation@baylor.edu for more information regarding purchasing an item separately.

9. Are masks required for the event?
Yes, face masks must be worn at all times during the event by both participants and volunteers. Masks may only be removed when a participant is actively running or walking during the racing event.

10. I have received the COVID-19 vaccine, am I still required to wear a mask?
Yes, face masks must be worn at all times during the event by both participants and volunteers, even in the case of being partially or fully vaccinated. Masks may only be removed when a participant is actively running or walking during the racing event.
