We completely understand that plans change and athletes will sometimes be unable to compete in an event they've signed up for.  Unfortunately, refunds will not be provided for any event unless the event is cancelled for reasons within our control.  Dangerous weather, natural disasters, and local emergencies are examples of reasons an event may be cancelled that are NOT within our control.

Should an athlete have an injury or other medical issue keeping them from competing in an event they've registered for, we would be happy to transfer their registration to a similar TriToFinish-owned event up to and including the same event the following season.  A doctor's slip may be required as proof of injury or ailment.  Failure to provide proof if requested will result in non-transfer of the event.

Transferring registrations to other athletes is NOT allowed.


Can I run with my dog? We love dogs too!  Unfortunately, USA Track & Field (our sanctioning body and insurance provider) does not allow the participation of animals unless a certified service dog.

Can I run/walk with a stroller? Yes!  But please be aware that the race is “out and back” on the rail trail so runners and walkers will be coming back at you after the turnaround. Please be courteous and stay to the right side of the trail with strollers.

What does “USATF Sanctioning” mean?  It means that organizers have followed a process with USA Track & Field that requires creation of a safety plan and purchase of outstanding insurance covering participants, volunteers, sponsors, partners and organizers of the event.  It also means that your race results will be official for scoring purposes (assuming you track that sort of thing).

What happens if the event is cancelled?  Will I receive a refund?  If the race is cancelled for reasons Organizers can control then we will work diligently to provide a refund or transfer of registration to another event.  However, cancellation due to extreme weather or local emergency is not controlled by organizers and is not reason for reimbursement. We WILL however, attempt to push start of the race back in 30-minute increments until the emergency dissipates.
