LOTTERY PROCESS QUESTIONS
WHERE CAN I REGISTER FOR THE LOTTERY?
You can register for the lottery starting Thursday, October 3 at 9am EDT through Sunday, October 20 11:59pm EDT at this REGISTRATION LINK
WHY IS REGISTRATION FOR THE SKYWAY 10K BRIDGE RUN HELD THROUGH A LOTTERY SYSTEM?
The Skyway 10K decided to switch to a lottery system for the 2020 event in order to establish a fair and less frantic way for participants to register for the event. Under the first-come first-served system, the event sold out within 22 minutes in only its second year for the 2019 Skyway 10K. The lottery system provides an equal opportunity for all participants to register and be selected for the event, while also helping to eliminate errors and delays caused by high traffic volumes to the registration site.
HOW DOES REGISTRATION FOR THE SKYWAY 10K LOTTERY WORK?
All interested parties will be able to register for the Skyway 10K lottery by logging on to www.skyway10k.com during the 18-day period starting at 9AM EST on Thursday, October 3rd and extending through 11:59PM EST on Sunday, October 20th. You will complete the lottery registration form and will be asked to provide certain personal information. You will not be asked to provide any credit card information at this time. There is no fee to enter the lottery. Participants may only enter the lottery once. Those entering the lottery multiple times will have their entries removed and will not be eligible for selection for the event.
Regardless of the date and time one registers during the designated lottery registration period, all individuals and groups will have an equal chance of being selected for the event.
WHEN WILL THE DRAWING FOR THE SKYWAY 10K LOTTERY OCCUR?
An electronic “random drawing” will be held after the lottery period closes on Sunday, October 20th. Those individuals and groups who entered the lottery and receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Sunshine Skyway 10K Bridge Run will be notified of their invitation via email on Monday, October 21st by approximately 10AM EST, and will have until Sunday, October 27th at 11:59PM EST to accept the invitation.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM RANDOMLY SELECTED THROUGH THE LOTTERY PROCESS?
You will receive an opportunity to register for a race entry into the Third Annual Skyway 10K Race on March 1st, 2020. The registration invitation will arrive via email, and it is the sole responsibility of the registrants to actively check their emails, including junk or spam folders, for email responses at the designated time. Registration for the race is $80.00 per participant.
At this time participants will be required to submit payment to complete their registration securing their entry into the Skyway 10K Bridge Run.
All Skyway 10K registration invitees will have one week to claim their spots and register online. Any unclaimed spots are deemed to have been forfeited without exception, and will be offered to the next randomly selected individuals on the following Monday after that one-week acceptance period expires. The process will continue until all available spots have been claimed.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN I ENTER THE SKYWAY 10K LOTTERY?
Each individual or group (see below) may enter only once. Duplicate entries for individuals and for groups will be removed prior to the selection of registration invitees through the lottery system and those individuals submitting duplicate entries will not be eligible for selection.
HOW CAN I ENSURE MY FRIENDS AND I RUN TOGETHER?
Groups of up to four (4) participants are allowed to enter the lottery system with the opportunity to be randomly selected as a group. Groups are treated as one entry into the lottery system, and will have the same chance of being selected in the lottery as each single individual entrant.
Or you may purchase one of the limited VIP entries which provides guaranteed race entry. More information on VIP can be found in the VIP section of these FAQs.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF REGISTERING A GROUP IN THE LOTTERY SYSTEM?
When signing up for the lottery, a person can select to register for the lottery as an individual or either a 2-person, 3-person or 4-person group. The person registering the group for the lottery will enter each group member’s lottery information including first name, last name, email address, date of birth, zip code and phone number for each person in the group.
Please note that no additional members can be added to a group after the group is registered for the lottery or after the lottery process closes. The groups exist only for purposes of entering the lottery system; immediately following the completion of the lottery registration period, the groups will be disbanded. Each individually-invited lottery group member will then be responsible for completing their own individual registrations in order to participate in the 2020 Skyway 10K Bridge Run, without exception.
If any individual lottery group member fails to timely register by the designated deadline, that member shall be deemed to have forfeited his/her registration invitation, without exception.
CAN I REGISTER MORE THAN ONE GROUP?
You may only be entered once, either within a group or as an individual. Duplicate entries for individuals and for groups will be removed prior to the selection of registration invitees through the lottery system and those individuals submitting duplicate entries will not be eligible for selection. Other individuals would need to register separately, or as part of another unique group.
WHAT IF MY GROUP IS SELECTED AND ONE GROUP MEMBER DECIDES NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SKYWAY 10K?
Because the “groups” will be effectively disbanded immediately following the completion of the lottery registration period, only those members of the selected group who wish to participate in the Skyway 10K are required to register for the event. Please note, however, that group members cannot be changed or modified once the lottery registration process closes.
CAN I ADD PEOPLE TO MY GROUP IF MY GROUP IS SELECTED DURING THE LOTTERY PROCESS?
No. Only those individuals who affiliated with the original group lottery registration will be invited or allowed to register for the race. No additional members can be added to a group after the lottery period closes. If any individual lottery group member fails to timely register by the designated deadline, that member shall be deemed to have forfeited his/her registration invitation, without exception, and that invitation cannot be reassigned to anyone else after it has been forfeited.
WHEN ARE SELECTED LOTTERY ENTRANTS NOTIFIED?
Selected lottery entrants will be notified via email on each Monday by 10AM EST of the designated lottery drawing. It is the responsibility of the participant to actively check their email, including junk or spam folders, for email notifications at the designated time. If a participant misses the registration deadline following his or her notification, that registration invitee will not have another opportunity to participate in the 2020 Skyway 10K Bridge Run.
HOW ARE SELECTED LOTTERY ENTRANTS NOTIFIED?
Selected lottery entrants will be notified via email on each Monday by 10AM EST of the designated lottery drawing.
WHEN WILL I ENTER IN MY PERSONAL INFORMATION, PAYMENT INFORMATION, AND RACE-RELATED CHOICES?
When you register for the lottery between October 3rd and October 20th, you will enter the following contact information: first name, last name, email address, date of birth, zip code and phone number. This information is used as identifying information for the purpose of the lottery process.
If you register as a group, the group registrant will enter the same information above for each member of the group.
If you are randomly selected to participate in the 2020 Skyway 10K through the lottery process, you will receive an invitation to register via email. If you elect to register for the 2020 Skyway 10K, at this time you will confirm your contact information, enter additional personal information, enter your payment information, and select your preferred bus wave time, along with other race-related selections. Each participant is responsible for diligently checking their email, including junk or spam folders, for email notifications at the designated time.
If you entered the lottery as a group, and the group was randomly selected to participate in the 2020 Skyway 10K through the lottery process, each member of the group will then be individually invited to register for the event via email, and will be individually responsible to then register for the event and provide the information indicated above. You will NOT be invited to register for the event as a group, nor will you be able to register for the event as a group.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I WAS NOT INVITED TO REGISTER FOR THE SKYWAY 10K? WILL I BE NOTIFIED IF I DON’T GET IN THROUGH THE LOTTERY PROCESS?
If you have been selected for a spot, you will be notified via email on the Mondays following the close of the lottery registration period. It is the responsibility of the participant to actively check their emails, including junk or spam folders, for email notifications at the designated time.
All active participants in the lottery will receive weekly communications via email until all available 7,500 lottery registration invitations are claimed. We anticipate that all available registration invitations will be claimed by the end of November 2019, at which time we will notify all active participants that the lottery process has concluded.
WHEN DO I PAY FOR MY REGISTRATION?
If you are randomly selected in the lottery process, payment will be required during the actual race registration process.
WILL I BE ABLE TO CHECK THE STATUS OF MY LOTTERY ENTRY?
No. All participants must check their email each week for their invitation following each lottery drawing. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to actively check their emails, including junk or spam folders, for emailed updates on their individual lottery status at the designated time. All active participants in the lottery will receive weekly communications via email until all available 7,500 lottery registration invitations are claimed.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY LOTTERY ENTRY WENT THROUGH CORRECTLY?
Each participant or group participant will receive a confirmation email after submitting their lottery entry, which will confirm entry into the lottery.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS MY DESIGNATED DEADLINE TO CLAIM MY SPOT?
If the registration deadline is missed, another opportunity will not be granted. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to actively check their emails, including junk or spam folders, for email notifications on their individual lottery status and further instructions at the designated time.
WHY ARE THERE MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF LOTTERY INVITATIONS?
As lottery registrants are randomly selected, some registration invitees may elect not to register, may neglect to check their email for their notification to register, or may miss their designated deadline to claim their Skyway 10K registration. Those unclaimed selections will be collected and offered to the next set of randomly selected lottery entrants.
HOW MANY ROUNDS OF WINNERS WILL THERE BE?
The lottery process will continue until all 7,500 lottery registration invitations are claimed. We anticipate that all available Skyway 10K registrations will be filled by the end of November, at which time all active participants in the lottery will be notified that the lottery process has concluded.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
The Skyway 10K decided to switch to a lottery system for the 2020 event in order to establish a fair and less frantic way for participants to register for the event. Under the first-come, first-served system, the event sold out within 22 minutes in only its second year for the 2019 Skyway 10K.
