Athletes With Disabilities

Criteria for AWD Entry

  • AWDs must be able to run the course

  • Tethers may be used for athletes with a visually impairment

  • Leg prosthetics may be used for amputees.

  • Crutches, braces, or poles may be used if indicated/necessary, with approval from the RD.

  • Since the course is a trail through the mountains, it is not suitable for athletes in wheelchairs (see more on this below).

  • AWDs must be able to finish within the 30 hour cutoff.

AWD Entry Process

AWDs will follow the same registration process as the general registration, and will register for the distance race they plan to run. If an AWD requires additional time to register (due to visual impairment), contact the RD for early registration.

Refund Policy

As a runner it’s inevitable that you’re going to register for a race that at some point later on you’re unfortunately not going to be able to start for one reason or another. It happens to all of us, especially as race registrations need to open months in advance of the races themselves, and life happens during those interim months: Injuries, work, family emergencies, etc. We assure you we get it; we really do. And we strive to be as understanding and cooperative as we practically and financially can.
But just because the race hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean we haven’t already incurred significant expenses related to that race. We pay taxes on the income from the entry fees; we pay for permits, insurance, and supplies (including race shirts, buckles and other awards) For all of these reasons and more we cannot offer refunds or transfers.
