Frequently Asked Questions

The Gender / Birthday is wrong

The gender, date of birth, city, and estimated finish time listed is NOT correct and will NOT be used in the actual challenge. Only first and last name will be accurate.

What Should I do next?

If your name correctly appears in all the Challenges you are qualified for, you are all set. No need to sign up for any additional form. See you at the Expo!

Why does my name does not appear?

We work in partnership with other races to keep track of all Challengers. Our system is based on a perfect match of your registration information. If you have used a different email, or maiden vs married name, Mike or Michael etc… our system may not recognize you as the same runner. SIMPLY contact our team and we can reconcile your file.

My Name is not on the list – What should I do?

Simply contact our team and we will be happy to help. Please allow up to 24 hours for our team to get back to you.

I missed the deadline. What now ?

If you missed the deadline of Saturday, December 17 – 5p, you have two options:
1 / We will send a reminder as we get closer to the event.
2/ Come see our Solutions Desk at the EXPO. Just keep in mind that the earlier you confirm your registration, the less you’ll have to wait at the event, the more time you’ll have to enjoy our live bands and beer garden.
