This is noted on our registration application and when you register for our events you must agree to this policy. You may not give or sell your number to another individual – if you do, this will result in your disqualification as well as the runner who uses your race number.

All fees and associated costs (including optional product purchases, spectator tickets, and donations), paid in registration for this Event are not refundable for any reason under any circumstances, including but not limited to injury, a scheduling conflict, and/or event cancellation.

If there is inclement weather during the race, It is your responsibility as a race participant to follow instructions from race officials and law enforcement in regards to inclement weather. If you disregard instructions from race officials, you are doing so at your own risk.
