*Because goodies must be ordered far enough in advance to have them printed & shipped, late and walk-up entrants will receive SWAG on a first come, first-served basis. If the shirt size you prefer is unavailable when you register, please select your next best size to be sure you get one, then stop by the packet pick-up area after you race to see if a swap is possible.

 

Without YOU, these events simply wouldn’t be possible. From event prep to packet pick-up, and from course marshals to meal service, there are a variety of ways you can help. There’s no experience necessary, but space is limited so please let us know you’re available right away! Students: Earn those credits in the most fun way possible! Groups: Tired of those bake sales & car washes? We are happy to be a part of your fundraising efforts! (Donations begin with just 10 volunteers and you need not be an official nonprofit.) Athletes: We know endurance sports can take a big chunk out of your pocket book and we’ve got your back. Ask about our ‘Earn a Free Entry’ program!
