Refund, Transfer & T-Shirt Policies

     REFUNDS/TRANSFERS

All registration entries are non-refundable.  Once an athlete has registered, no refunds will be issued for any purpose.  A race transfer will be granted as long as written notification has been made at least 10 days prior to the race date.  A race transfer is defined as transferring a current registration to a future registration within the same race season.  The fee to transfer to another race is $20 and must be received within that 10-day pre-race window.  Transfers for the last race of the season can be made to the first race of the following season provided written notice is received 10-days prior to event along with transfer fee.

Due to the planning, coordinating and expenses associated with creating an event, this policy will be strictly enforced.  We appreciate your understanding given the time and resources it takes to create a safe and organized venue for our athletes.

     NATURAL DISASTER / EMERGENCY

The Natural Disaster Policy is in effect if an Act of God, Terrorism, or Community Disaster occurs.  If in the event of the aforementioned, decisions concerning the race will be based on safety first.  Races will be altered, cancelled and/or rescheduled as necessary.  Please be advised that under no circumstances refunds will be given once an athlete has registered for an event
