15 event slots are annually reserved for teams racing for a charitable cause.  Charity teams pay the full registration amount, but will be afforded a guaranteed entry ahead of the opening of General Registration.  Athletes interested in racing for a cause should use the link above to apply for a charity team entry during the month of OCTOBER.

Waitlisted Registration
If your team fails to secure an entry through General Registration, the only way to gain entry into the event is to place your team onto the waitlist. We operate a non-priority wait list. When we receive notification of a team drop, every waitlisted registrant will be sent an email notification of the available registration. The first individual to respond will have their team moved onto the active roster. Historically, 10 to 15 teams ordinarily drop prior to race day.

Refund Policy:
Selling, swapping or exchange of Race Registrations is no longer permitted.  All registration cancellations must be submitted to the Race Director for reassignment. Your percentage refund will be credited back to your credit card.

A percentage refund will be determined by the following schedule, contingent upon the date that you submit your Refund Request HERE.

December 1st – January 31st – 75% Refund of Team Registration
February 1st – February 28th – 50% Refund of Team Registration
March 1st – March 19th – 25% Refund of Team Registration
