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 UltraSignup 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: 

      1. You can cancel your registration via your registration history on Ultra Signup

      2. You can select the "Edit" link on your registration receipt from Ultra Signup 

    • Once you have "canceled" you registration by the deadline, 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

      • The registration deadline for your rollover to count towards the next race is by January 31 at 11:59pm of the race year you are registering for OR before your event fills up. Whichever comes soonest. If the event you want is full you can be added to the waitlist. If you get in your rollover will still apply, if you got on the waitlist before the Jan. 31 deadline.​​



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/style you sign up for is the size you get when you show up for packet pickup. Changing to another size/style after the items are ordered is not allowed.


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 and also the Cabin Cr. Turnaround, 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 racecourse will be under your own care and responsibility.


We love our PUTS Pups! However, we do not allow them on the course. Runners or crew with dogs on the course are creating a potential hazard for other runners and it may lead to a disqualification.

Dogs are permitted at the YMCA Camp but we ask that they be leashed at all times, cleaned up after, and kept away from the main lodge and start/finish area. 


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.

May & June: Stay tuned for info regarding course preview runs exclusively for registered racers. Take the opportunity to review key sections before you race!
