Can I switch from the 10 mile race to the 5 mile race or vice versa?

An individual race entry may be transferred under the following circumstances:
  • $20 Fee to transfer from race to race or to Virtual. An additional $10 will be charged if moving up a distance.
    • In order to do this you will need to e-mail and get the registration instructions and pass code.
    • If transferring a distance with a lower entry fee to a distance with a higher entry fee the athlete will be required to pay the difference of these two race entry fees. NOTE: If you change on race day, you will NOT be qualified to place in your age group and you will be listed in the “unofficial results”.
Example: You pay $20 during Bonanza pricing for the 10 mile, then in a month before the race you decide to run the 5-mile instead, the 5-mile price is now $60, so you will owe $40 to switch to the 5 mile.
