2024 Registration Notes:

Streamlined registration process:

Our goal is to create more consistent competing race categories across distances and ages. Instead of selecting a predetermined distance age group, you’ll only need to select your race distance; Men, Women or Non-binary (unless you’re racing SS, Tandem, Fat Bike or Para-Athlete). We will be creating competing age group categories based on actual registration numbers, with a goal of keeping sizes reasonable yet competitive. Don't worry we'll have categories created and posted plenty early, so you have visibility into your race category competitors.

Race start waves, self-seeding:

In an effort to continue to improve course safety, rider interaction and overall race experience, we will once again let racers self-seed their start wave during the registration process.  Our goal is to create more consistency in start waves by having participants with similar speeds, competitiveness and anticipated pace going off in the same start wave. As part of the registration process, racers will “self-seed” themselves in the appropriate distance and race wave based on their expected finishing time. During the registration process, you’ll answer a question regarding which start wave and expected finishing time you anticipate. Once a start wave has reached our maximum quantity, you’ll need to select the next available wave. You will have the ability to change your own start wave selection, to another available start wave until the registration deadline on 4/5/23. *If you change your original registered race distance, you’ll need go into your new race distance and select a new start wave based on your new race distance*

Race wave start times:

As we continue to look at safety and rider experience, we have determined that some changes to start time will help create a better experience for all racers out on course. The 100-mile race will still start ay 7am, but now the 36-mile will go off at 10am followed by the 62-mile at 11am and finally the 18-mile at 11:15am.

Did your plans change, and you’ll no longer be able to attend the race? Don’t worry, you have until 4/5/24 to sell your entry to the next person on the wait list (as long as there is someone on the wait list) or find your own replacement racer and sell them your race entry. 
The race registration transfer process:
Sell your race entry to the next person on the waitlist; 
Once the race is Sold Out the wait list for all categories will open. Simply go into your race registration through your Bikereg account or registration confirmation email and select “withdraw entry”. If there is someone on the waitlist they will receive your entry and you'll receive a refund to your original payment method.
Sell your entry to someone you find: 
The original registered racer finds a person to sell their registration to and works out the selling price, payment arrangement and needs the buyers email address. The original registered racer then goes into their BikeReg race confirmation or account and selects “TRANSFER REGISTRATION”. Enter the email of the person buying your registration. The person transferring in gets an email, accepts the transfer, and goes to BikeReg and selects the category they will be racing in.  They will check out and pay the $10 transfer fee. 

**The event organizers reserve the right to delay, reschedule or cancel the race due to, but not limited to include; weather, emergencies and any unforeseen situations that may put at risk the safety of the racers, spectators, volunteers and general public.  No refunds or entry deferring will be provided, however the race organizers may offer registrants a partial refund or credit to a future race.
