Registration for the 2021 race is expected to open by December 2020, pending COVID status. If you have a deferment credit code from the cancelled 2020 race, please enter it on the final registration screen (you received an email with the code on 9/8/20).

2021 Entry Fee (same price as 2019)
Quarter Marathon $47
Half Marathon       $57
Full Marathon        $72 (includes $5 parking pass)
Kids Run (2/3 mi.) free (no registration; just sign a waiver at the start)

Entry fee includes lunch (pig roast, deli veggie sides, fresh fruit, sweets) and a camp-style pint. Your charge will appear as MI Adventure Racing on your credit card statement.

The long-sleeve race shirt is $15 more and optional to keep costs down for those who don’t need it. Scroll down on registration page to purchase.

If you are serving or have served in the military, email us for a 10% off discount code (or use the same one from last year if you still have it).


Distance Changes
We cannot give money back if you choose to move down to a shorter distance but you can make the change right in your RunReg account. Just select Change Category and your preferred distance. If you are moving up in distance, you’ll be asked for the difference in cost.

If you cannot race, you can transfer your entry to another runner and up until registration closes within your RunReg account. The transfer itself is free. You must arrange to receive full or partial payment from that person for your entry. See below for instructions on transferring. Because of the free transfers, our official policy is to not provide race credits for those who cannot do the race.

However, due to the 2020 race date change due to the pandemic, we will provide you a 100% credit if you cannot find a transfer. Contact us and provide your name and distance you were signed up to run. The credit code you receive can be applied to either next year’s Hurt the Dirt OR our Dirty Duel race this year or next, ending on Dec. 31 of the second year. You must re-register for next year’s Hurt the Dirt if you wish to use the credit there.

In addition, we WILL refund your shirt or other merchandise ordered if you cannot race as long as you contact us before the Monday of race week preferably earlier. We will consider cash refunds in the case of financial hardship.

If you purchased race insurance (e.g., Allianz Registration Protection via RunReg), contact them to inquire about possible reimbursement.

Transfer/Edit Process
Detailed instructions and screenshots.

If you have an account. Find the link in your email confirmation or sign in to your registration (if you registered last year under our old Snap system, contact us). Click on Transfer to the right of My Upcoming Events. Enter in the email address of the person receiving the transfer and click the button again. Once the email has been sent, the person receiving the transfer will need to go through the checkout process to receive the transferred registration, even though there is no charge. Once the transfer is successful the original participant will receive a confirmation email.

If you signed up but did not created an account. Go to the registration page and click “Contact Event” under the event name. Click on the Trying to Edit or Transfer Your Entry green box. On the next page, enter the email address that was used to register. An email will be sent to that address with a link to the page where edits and transfers can be made.

Full refunds are available in the case of a death in the family, military duty or significant financial hardship such as a lost job or major medical expense.

Event Cancellation Policy
Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the event in the case of extended severe weather or other emergency/unforeseen event. We will do everything possible to get the event in including rescheduling, but full credits/refunds are not available if it is cancelled (or rescheduled) due to significant costs we must pay in advance of the race (e.g., insurance, permits, vendor deposits, advertising, graphic design, etc.) along with hundreds of hours of planning. If possible, we will reschedule rather than cancel the race. In the event of a thunderstorm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Extended severe weather may result in cancellation of the event.
