Know what you’re in for – read the racer information and FAQs thoroughly. We realize things happen between now and race day, and in light of that fact, we will be allowing a 70% refund to soloists, marathoners, and teams within 45 days of submitting your registration (until May 1st).  Up until race day, soloists/marathoners may elect to pay a fee of $100 to transfer their entry to next year. However, we do not allow solo/marathon substitutions. While teams may not transfer entry to next year or increase the size of their team, as of June 1st they may replace and/or rearrange existing team members starting at $10 (which will increase as we approach race day). Failure to toe the starting line is a DNF. No exceptions and absolutely no whining.

For the registration of teams, there are some highlights to be aware of:
1.  Teams will register as a single entity by the Team Captain, who will complete a single registration form and pay on behalf of all team members.  Preview the registration form <click here> so you know what information you will need to register your entire team.

2.  The Relay Division will only be accepting entries from teams as one entity.  

3.  Payments will only be accepted (for the full team fee) on-line via Visa, Mastercard or PayPal.  Ensure you have sufficient room on your credit card to pay the race registration fee. 

4.  A refund of 70% will be offered for 45 days from submission (until May 1st). 

5.  Once you have selected a Team Name and Team Size there will be no changes to the Team Name or Increase to Team Size under any circumstances. There are no refunds for decreasing your team size by having a runner take on an additional leg.

6.  If a racer on your team is unable to participate or you wish to change the order in which you run, Team substitutions/changes will be permitted using the Team Line-Up Change Form.  An administration fee will be charged for such changes according to the following schedule:
June 1 to June 30 -$10
July 1 to July 21 -$25
July 22 to Thursday before race- $50
Race weekend Friday -$100

(we cannot guarantee last minute changes can be accurately reflected in preliminary results. Please make your changes as soon as you can).

7.  If you submit a Team Line-Up Change Form, we cannot guarantee that you will get the T-shirt size you requested.

8.  It is expected that the Team Captain (or designate) come to Race Kit Pick Up on Friday before the race, to pick up the entire Team’s race kits.  Government picture ID (such as a driver’s license) is required to pick up your race kits.

9.  The waiver is on the back of the bib in your race kit. By wearing your bib on race day (which is mandatory) you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of the waiver. (The Race Kit has the timing device, bib, coin, T-shirts and an assortment of goodies).   

• UNDER 18?
You must be at least 16 years old on Race Day to participate in the adult Death Race. If you are under 18 at the time of registration, a parent must read and agree to the <waiver>  which will also appear on the back of the race bib.

The kid's race is open to 200 runners. Registration closes when full. 

Racers who also volunteer are entered for a chance to win their race fees back, and will receive a 50$ discount into next year's race (see conditions under the registration or volunteer tabs)

Your registration is not complete until your name appears correctly on the rosters. Verify that your entry has been accepted and correctly listed.
