• The race organizers reserve the ability to cancel or reroute the event due to unsafe weather. Race organizers will make the best decisions when it comes to protecting the safety of all runners. This means we reserve the right to adjust, cancel, reroute, OR reschedule as we see fit. Because the bulk of our costs come before the event occurs we will not be able to extend refunds to those who wish to cancel their registration. In the instance of biblical weather and/or a force majeure, we will assess things appropriately and fairly, to the best of our abilities. 

  • We allow you to change your chosen race distance until September 15, 2021. If you decide to run a longer (and more expensive) distance, you will be required to pay the difference. However, no refunds will be given if you choose to drop to a shorter (and less expensive) distance. No changes WHATSOEVER are allowed after September 15, 2021. Please note this includes dropping down in distance from the 52k to the 26k on race weekend as it is likely both distances will be sold out.

  • For runners who were rolled over from the 2020 event and cannot make the new October dates, we are offering a 100% rollover to 2022. Please note that we require that you email us this notification AND pull yourself from the event on If you do not take these steps it will void your rollover option. Race registration is non-transferable.

  • For runners who registered after December 9, 2020 and got into any distance off the wait list, race registration is non-transferable and cannot be rolled over to subsequent years, unless extenuating medical or life circumstances occur. However, we understand life can get in the way of racing. As such we are happy to offer a $50 credit towards the following year until September 1, 2021 for the 52k and 26k ONLY. For the 11k and/or VK, we are happy to offer a $20 credit towards the following year until September 1, 2021.

  • Please note that we REQUIRE that you email us your "withdrawal" from the race AND cancel your registration on Not doing so voids any and all rollover options. Online registration closes at 11:59pm, Friday, September 24, 2021. On site registration will be available at Squaw Valley on Friday, October 1, 2021 (9am-5pm), Saturday, October 2, 2021 (6am-4pm) and Sunday, October 3, 2021 (6am-645am).
