Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I drop to a shorter race distance?
A: This is a conditional yes! (we aim to please ☺) However, in addition to all the stuff listed in the bullet points below, you must report your distance drop-down immediately to the race director, co-race director, tatur racing timing and/or the finish line emcee in order for the change to be acknowledged officially!
  • Only 100 mile and 100k runners are eligible to drop down.
    • The medal award will correspond with the distance completed.
    • 100 mile belt buckles will NOT be awarded if the 100 mile distance is not completed.
    • Dropping to a shorter distance will result in running MORE than the distance you drop to. Due to the course design, this can’t be helped. DO NOT chop off any mileage of the last lap - you must finish all of it!
  • There are no provisions for dropping down from the 50K, 25K to the 10-mile distance. Medals will not be awarded if the registered distance is not completed.
  • Drop-down runners are not eligible for placement awards.
Q: I registered, but I can’t come. How about that refund?
A: That totally blows, because it won’t be the same without you! And, damn! We wish we could issue refunds, but we start planning the next year’s race before the current course is even cleared. All acquisitions and contracts from food to bling to porta-a-pottys, are based on registrant numbers. So, in order for us to put on the most amazing race possible, we aren’t able to offer refunds. We hope you understand.
