Q: What is the race cancelation policy?
A: To ensure the safest event for the participants and all involved, we reserve the right to cancel, delay, or modify the format of the event at anytime. Believe us, it would have to be a very, very SERIOUS and DANGEROUS situation for the event to be canceled. But in the unfortunate situation this is required, there is a no-refund policy in place, as the majority of the costs have already been incurred to host the event and when associated, we do not want to take away any contributions to our charities. We expect you to be disappointed if the event is canceled, as we will be, but we also hope you understand why a no-refund policy is in place.
Q: Are there any refunds or transfers?
A: Sorry, all registrations are final; there are no refunds or transfers to other participants. Within 10 days of the event, you can transfer your paid registration to another future event, for a small fee. Please see the Transfer page for full details. If you are unable to do the event please let us know ASAP so someone else can take your spot.
Q: Are strollers, joggers, pets, etc allowed on the course?
A: Due to insurance purposes and the safety of all participants, and the obvious reason of the terrain of the trails, we cannot allow strollers, joggers, pets, etc on any of the courses at all.
Q: How many participants will be allowed to register?
A: The race capacity is 300 people.
Q: Is the event chip-timed?
A: No. We use an on-line application called Webscorer to manually track when you cross the finish line, then the application automatically computes the overall finish times an Age Division placement.
Q: How many water stations are on the run course?
A: There will be two (2) aid stations on the course/each loop.
