Well, you did say you wanted to hang out with the Pirates... Seems like a bunch of us are going, so if you don't find a ride from NYC you can prolly tag along with us if you can get here.

or, alternatively, the race is pro-girl! nobody's making you sleep with your race partner. gay men can just sign up with a girl. big dealio.

here's what you need to know:
the goal of this race is to get women, who are underrepresented at races, to come out and race.
if a person self-identifies as a woman, and isn't just saying that to get out of paying the $40 reg (which goes to a good cause, I should add!), that's totally cool.
