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. Stuck? Contact RunReg or us.

If you cannot race, you can transfer your entry to another runner and up until the deadline for online changes. Do this 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.

Cancellation Policy
Email us if you need to cancel. If 60 days or more, let us know which option you want.

We are not able to give cash back on COVID-19 credits from 2020 but we will honor credits through 2022 at either Hurt the Dirt or our Dirty Duel.

60 days out or more: 100% cash back with $10 per person administrative fee OR 100% credit

30-60 days out: 50% cash back OR 100% credit

15-30 days out: 25% cash back OR 100% credit

6-14 days out: 75% credit (ends Sunday at midnight of race week)

Race credits are good until the end of the following calendar year.

We can do a 100% cash 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.

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

Transfer/Edit Process

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 or military duty.

Race Cancellation
In the case of severe weather, COVID, or any other cancellation, any deferment credit amount will be at the race’s discretion based on incurred expenses. 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. In the event of a thunderstorm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Extended severe weather or very muddy trails may result in cancellation of the event or shortening of race distances.
