Q. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, there is no need to print out your ticket. We will have a list of all registered participants at packet pick up and on race day.
Q. Do you issue refunds?
Unfortunately, no. Putting on a race can be a very expensive endeavor. To a small extent, that risk gets shared by all who register, since injuries, emergencies and plain old “life happening” can potentially ruin plans for participation. Because the majority of the funds collected have been spent long before the race occurs, we do not issue cash refunds. We will, however, credit you with 50% or 75% of your entry toward a future race if you let us know in advance (at least 2 weeks for 75% credit, at least 72 hours for 50%).

There is no age limit for this event. We welcome any and all racers!

Q. Will there be food?

Q. Are Ipods/mp3’s allowed on the race course?
We encourage you not to wear headphones on the race course as a courtesy to other participants, as well as for the safety of all participants on the course. If you decide to wear an Ipod/Mp3 on the course, we do ask that you keep the volume low enough in order to hear safety monitors and fellow participants on the course.

We encourage participants to bring a bag to put belongings in and drop at our designated “Bag Drop Area” prior to the race and retrieve them once the event is over. Please do not place items of value in the “Bag Drop Area” as we are not responsible for lost or broken items. Clothing found unclaimed will be donated to charity.
