Q: The Race for the Cure is at the Southdale Center in Edina. Can I register there?
A: Yes, beginning Monday, May 8th, 2017, you may register at our Shop Komen kiosk, located in Southdale Center, level 1. (If you want to be on a team, your registration must be completed online by May 2nd or mailed in by your team captain by April 20th). If you prefer to register as an individual participant AND pick up your race T-shirt at the same time, you may also register on Race weekend-Friday, May 12, Saturday, May 13, or Race Day, May 14. If you're on a team, your Team Captain must pick up your materials.

Q: Can I pick up a T-shirt, bib and wristband for a friend or family member?
