- City Race Map FAQ
Can you make a race print for a past year?
Yes, absolutely! We can create a print for any year. If you want the course map to match a year other than the one you see on our site (the most recent course map) please order a custom race map.
Do you make half-marathon prints?
Of course! Please order a custom race map if you do not see the half marathon on our site.
Can you put multiple years and/or times on the print?
Sure! Because of the increase in the information amount, we will have to omit the bib numbers. Please write the years with their times in the additional info box.
We would like to make these for our team. Can you add our logo in?
Yes, just email your vector file (preferable) or hi-resolution .jpg file to email@example.com
Do your prints come in different colors?
To best commemorate your race, we stick to the colors of the race’s branding. If you'd like difference colors you can order a custom race map.
I don’t see my race on your site. Can you custom make a print for me?
Absolutely! Please order a custom race map.

International Shipping generally takes up to 2 weeks via USPS. The tracking is somewhat limited, the only information we have about your international shipment is what you see via your tracking link. The recipient may need to pay taxes and duties on delivery of the order. Because of the complex nature of international shipping Run Ink does not offer insurance or replacement on international orders.
We recommend you purchase digital downloads and avoid international shipping. We can guide you on how best to print your maps on your end.
