Due to the extreme terrain covered in the PUTS, pre-race meetings are not optional for the 100 & 50 milers. 50k'ers are strongly encouraged to attend as well. Important safety issues will be reviewed for all racers and questions answered. All pre-race meetings will be held at the start/finish area located at the YMCA Big Elk Lodge in Irwin, ID

There are no refunds but there is a rollover option
You can rollover your current registration to the following race year if you are unable to make the current race year's event
The rollover deadline is May 31st, no exceptions will be made after that date
The rollover is valid for only one use and only applies to your own Ultra Signup account
It is not transferable to another person
You cannot rollover two years in a row
You have two ways to complete the rollover process on your own:
You can cancel your registration via your registration history on Ultra Signup
You can select the "Edit" link on your registration receipt from Ultra Signup
Once you have "canceled" you registration the rollover will be applied and 100% of the entry cost (less the fee Ultra Signup collected on checkout) will be applied when you register for the following year's race
The rollover acts like a "coupon" to your account. When you register for the following year's race after it opens, you will see the coupon code apply automatically when you go to checkout
Bib-transfers are not allowed
Promotions & Discounts
Promo's and discounts are valid for specific uses only. Having already signed up does not entitle entrants to receive current sign-up promotions.
The size you sign up for is the size you get when you show up for registration. Changing to another size after the shirts are ordered means that another racer will not get that size you changed over to.
General Race Rules
Please follow the rules for your race (found on each race info page of our website for pacers, crew, etc.,) this includes not accepting aid outside of aid stations. You must check-in at EVERY aid station, failure to do so could lead to disqualification. Misinformation from other runners during the race does not justify breaking any of the rules previously discussed during the pre-race meeting. Cutoff times at aid stations or the finish line are all hard cutoffs. If you are pulled at an aid station because of failure to meet cutoff times or due to medical reasons you may not continue as a registered participant. You are no longer part of the "race" but if you choose to continue at this point you must remove your bib. No aid will be allowed at future aid stations and continuing on the race course will be under your own care and responsibility.
Custom Finisher Awards for all finishers in all races, including awards for the following categories in all race distances (13.1 and higher, male and female): Top-3 finishers, plus age group awards.
June & July: Stay tuned for info regarding course preview runs exclusively for registered racers. Take the opportunity to review key sections before you race!
