  • Derrick McFarlin says:

    Hi, I;m feeling doubtful about meeting the donations goal of $1000, and looking to switch over and pay for the race. Can I switch over and pay for the race?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Derrick – The Zion Half Marathon is sold out, so switching to a regular bib is no longer an option. Be sure to share the fundraising link you received with family and friends, on all your social media accounts. You can personalize the message on the link to say whatever you would like it to say to help you get people interested in donating to the National Park Foundation via your fundraiser.

      I am a veteran with a DD214. Served in the Air force in the 50’s with a honorable discharge. Am I eligible for a military discount?

      • Kaelee Clifford says:

        Hi Bob – Absolutely! Just check the box indicating that you qualify for the discount on page 3 of registration and bring a copy of your DD214, like a picture on a phone, when you pick up your bib.

  • Misty carrillo says:

    My race the Appalachian triple was deferred from last year to this year but it’s not showing up under current races I can see it under the full but it doesn’t say for what year… I’m not sure if there’s anything else that I need to do.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Misty – Your registration is still deferred. You should have received an email with a deferment code you can use to register with. If you need the code sent again, please email info@vacationraces.com.

    Hi-
    I would like to use my deferment to register for the Lake Powell half in 2018. My name is Gwen Palanos. Email is [redacted]. Phone is [redacted]. Can you tell me what the status of my deferment is for me and my husband, Matt?
    Thanks,

  • Bryony says:

    Do you have a cancellation list for regular runners (not under a charity bib)? I really want to run this race!!

  • Carlito Olea says:

    It’s my birthday and I want to run this half so bad. Please someone sell me their bib. My cell [redacted]

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      This is a general FAQ page so it’s not clear which race you’re referring to. I suggest finding the Facebook Event of the race you’re trying to get into. There are usually people there trying to sell their bibs.

  • Carlito Olea says:

    How do I get a bib to run? It’s my birthday and really, really, REALLY want to run it.

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Hi Carlito, it depends on which race you’re referring to but generally you’ll want to find the Facebook event for the race you’re trying to get into and look at the discussion thread. That’s usually where people post bibs for sale when they can’t attend the race.

  • Jessica says:

    I recently saw someone post a medal from the 2017 virtual eclipse race. I found the race, but see it’s closed, likely because it was so long ago. I know it’s a long shot, but any chance there are any medals left I could register and run for? Thanks!

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Jessica, you’ll need to send an email over to the Virtual Running Club support team for help with that.

  • Samantha S. says:

    Hi VR Team, I’m looking for a little clarification on the Half course for the Great Smoky Mtns race. The description states both the 5K, and the Half, start and finish at the Tally Ho Inn but the course map for the Half delineates a point to point course. Which is correct? Starting to make trip plans and it may change base camp options. Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Samantha – Sorry for the confusion. The half marathon will not start in front of the Talley Ho Inn. The website has been updated.

      Hi Tina – Yes, but you will need to check with local tour companies.

  • Rebekah says:

    Is there an age limit on the race? One of our kiddos was thinking about trying his first long race.

  • Jerry Kilts says:

    Hi there – I just tried to get a refund for my entry in the East Glacier Half-Marathon but I (Jerry Kilts) only wanted to cancel my entry – my daughter (Kristina Kilts, who I entered at the same time as mine) is still going to be doing the race. Unfortunately, it looks like Kristina’s entry was also cancelled. I would like to make sure that her entry is reinstated – she does want to do the race. Can you e-mail back to me that you received this comment and that Kristina is still entered? Sorry about this problem. Thanks! Jerry Kilts

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jerry – I have reactivated Kirstina’s registration and emailed an invoice for the refunded amount.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jerry – It looks like Kristina’s registration is active so you’re all set!

    Hello! I’m registered for the Coastal Redwoods day 1 and 3. I was planning on having a friend with me to explore on day 2 but sadly i’ll be on my own. Is it possible to still volunteer for day 2? If I did decide to run day 2 could I add it when I arrive at the race area in April? Thanks!

    Are headphones allowed in the glacier half marathon race?

  • Amy Palma says:

    Hi, I signed up for the yellowstone half marathon last year then ended up deferring to the Grand Teton race this year. When booking my flights I stupidly kept in mind the dates of the Yellowstone race and just now realized that I booked my flights for the wrong weekend. When i tried transferring my registration to the Yellowstone race this year it shows that the race transfer requests have closed. The Yellowstone race seems to not have sold out yet, would it be possible to still transfer my registration?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Amy – I have transferred your registration to the Yellowstone Half Marathon and sent you a confirmation email.

  • Maggie Thomas says:

  • Jadon Ross says:

    My wife and I both ran the half 2 years ago, and we did the hike to Bradley Lake for half off the race discount. We were not able to race last year due to my wife being pregnant. Can we get half off the registration for this year’s race? Because we were not able to use it last year.

  • Christian De Vera says:

    Hi. I just deferred my Yosemite registration, wanting to defer it to another race, but it did not allow me to do so. How can I do that? I thought there would be an option to defer to another race, but there wasn’t. Please advise. Thank you.

    I live in Canada and won’t be able to make it to the race this year. Is this race offered as a “virtual” run?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jeannie – The half marathon series races are not offered as virtual runs. However, if you are already registered for the race and can’t make it, you can defer to next year’s race by logging into your RunSignUp account and editing your race.

      • Jeannie+Medeiros says:

        Thanks Kaelee for your reply. We haven’t signed up – but may have to for 2019. ;-)

  • Chris De Vera says:

    Hi,

    I just deferred my registration for Yosemite half, but it did not allow me to defer to next year’s race or to another race. Is there a way I can defer to another race later this year?

    Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Chris – Once you defer a race it is put into a queue for next year’s race. If you want to transfer to a different race, you will need to email info@vacationraces.com.

  • Marilyn says:

    Do you need local volunteers for this race?

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Which race are you referring to? We usually will issue a call for volunteers as race day gets closer.

      • Marilyn says:

        Sorry! I thought I was on a specific race page. The Glacier Half Marathon. Where will that be posted? On the race’s FB event page? Thanks!

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          The volunteer form will be posted on Facebook and emailed out about a month before the race, so for Glacier it will be at the end of May.

  • Jenna says:

    I moved after registering for the Glacier Half Marathon. How can I update my address with you all so there are no mailing/packet pick-up issues? Thanks!

  • Greg Visser says:

    We found out yesterday that we will be unable to attend the Grand Teton half marathon. I went to request a refund and it tells me as of last night at 11:59 I cannot request one. I find it hard to believe that by chance that the date was last night at 11:59 PM. Please let me know what options are available to possibly to cancel and receive a refund. Thank you. Greg Visser

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Greg – Regular registration for the Grand Teton Half Marathon did actually end at 11:59pm on the 5th and late registration began at 12:00am on the 6th. However, because you tried to process it on the 5th, I have issued you a refund, minus the $10 processing fee, which you should see in a few days.

  • Jennifer says:

    If you can’t make it to the Race. I’m looking for a spare ticket. Thanks.

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      We recommend finding the Facebook event for the specific race you want to run and finding someone there who is trying to sell their bib. This is a generic FAQ page for all our races so few people will look here to sell a bib.

  • Nick says:

    Hi, I’m trying to figure out when late registration begins for the Bryce Canyon 100. I’m having some injury issues and was wondering if this next price jump on March 12th was still standard registration.

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Hi Nick. March 11th is the last day to get regular registration pricing. On the 12th the price goes up for late registration pricing.

  • Melissa says:

    I have a question related to the Glacier Half. It appears that everyone must drive to Browning and take a shuttle from there to the start line. The race then ends in East Glacier Village. Will there be a shuttle back to Browning from East Glacier? If we are staying in East Glacier, are there any shuttle options from there pre-race? Thanks.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Melissa – There will be shuttles post-race running from the finish line back to the parking area in Browning. There will not be any shuttles from East Glacier race morning.

  • Lori Sharp says:

    Hi There, I signed up for the Bryce Canyon 50K. I suffered a stress fracture this year and I am currently healing. That being said I think I need to drop down to the half marathon. I can’t find this race in my runsignup account in order for me to transfer to the half, however, I’m on the participant list. How do I drop down to the race?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Lori – I’m sorry to hear about your injury. I have transferred your registration to the half marathon distance and sent you a confirmation email.

  • Carmella Talavera-Pike says:

    Hello,I am registered but got a stress fracture on my right tibia so I will not be able to run this race.I am devastated!My name is Carmella Tavera-Pike we were traveling to this as my first vacation race from the East.Can I get a refund I am registered under the team Twisted Runner.I will not be able to go two years in a row and we were going to visit friends and celebrate my hubbies 60th birthday as well.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Carmella – I’m sorry to hear about your injury. I’m not sure which race you’re referring to, but you can request a refund as long as the refund deadline hasn’t passed. If the race is in late registration, a refund will not be available. However, you will still have a few options: defer to next year’s race, transfer to any of our other races, or sell your bib to another runner. You can log in to your RunSignUp account and click on the race under your profile to initiate any of these options.

  • Scott says:

    I deferred last year after an injury to this year’s Yellowston Half Marathon. I am now injured again and would like to request a refund. How do I do so? Thanks.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Scott – I’m sorry to hear about your injury. Once a race is deferred a refund is no longer an option. However, you can defer to next year’s race or transfer it to any of our other races by logging into your RunSignUp account and editing the Yellowstone race in your profile.

  • Marian McVey says:

    Hi, I have had major family issues arise and will not be able to make the race. I would like to request a refund if possible. My race registration ID is 18452153

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Marian – I’m sorry to hear you won’t be able to make it to the race. If the refund deadline hasn’t passed, you can log in to your RunSignUp account and request a refund for the race you’re referring to. If the refund deadline has passed (if the race is in late registration), you can defer to next year’s race, transfer to any of our other races, or try to sell your bib to another runner. The best place to find a runner looking for a bib to buy is on the race’s Facebook page.

  • Brittany says:

    I signed up for the Mount Rushmore half. This is a cup free race and we are getting hydra cups instead. So, are we supposed to fill up our cups at the aid stations? How many aid stations will there be and how far apart are there?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Brittany – There are aid stations near miles 3,5,7,9,11, and 12. You will use the Hydropouch like a reusable cup, so you will put liquid in it at the aid station, drink, and clip the empty pouch back on your waistband or running belt. Because it’s like a cup, it’s not made to run with liquid in it. Check out how it works here:
      https://vacationraces.com/programs-and-initiatives/cup-free-racing/

  • David Bond says:

    I’m scheduled fir the Zion half and apparently all the campgrounds within Zion and the surrounding 100 miles or so have been sold out for 6 months prior… any suggestions?

  • Caroline Himbert says:

    I signed up to volunteer at the Zion Half Marathon. I signed up for a different shift (28th) than I signed up first (26th). I cannot be there on the 26th and would like to delete the volunteer shift and keep but do not know how to do this.

  • Rebecca says:

    Hi, I registered for the Zion Half a while ago and booked a campsite with my registration. However I can’t seem to find my confirmation email anymore, can I possibly have it resent or verify my registration and when we have the campsite for? Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Rebecca – You should be able to log in to your registration and view your add ons and see the campsite. If you still have issues seeing it please email info@vacationraces.com.

  • Julia G Herrera says:

    Good evening, I register to run the 1/2 marathon at end of April but due to my plantar fasciitis and bone spur issue I won’t be able to run. Wanted to know if I can be refunded my registration fee?

  • Patricia Roberts says:

    What are the cutoff times for the aid stations on Bryce 100 mile?

  • SHERRY says:

    ARE THE FEES PAID FOR THESE RACES TAX DEDUCTIBLE ?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sherry – No, they are not.

  • Adam says:

    I see that the Zion race is sold out. Is there an opportunity to get on a waiting list? Or buy tickets the day of? My wife is already registered and I would like to run the race with here. Thanks!

  • Trish says:

    Does the timed 5k include a finishers medal and a tee-shirt? Also, what is a hydrapouch? Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Trish – 5k finishers will get a race shirt and a medal. Ours are cup-free races so the hydrapouch is a reusable cup you can clip to your waistband and use at aid stations for water and electrolyte drink.

  • Nicole N says:

    I’d like to defer to the same race the following year, but I’m registered as a charity bib runner. Is this possible? Also, what about the cost of the campsite that was paid at registration…does that transfer as well?

  • Lewis says:

    I need to request a refund, because I can’t make it. I was directed from the run sign up site, to go to the “request refund” from the menu on the website, but that isn’t listed.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Lewis – It’s most likely because the refund deadline for the race has passed. Which race are you referring to and I can check for you.

      • Lewis says:

        The Grand Tetons.

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          Yes, the refund deadline for that race was March 5th. You do still have a couple options: defer to next year’s race or transfer to any of our other races. Check out those options on our website https://vacationraces.com/policies/registration/here.

          • Lewis says:

            That is not the date I remember from when I signed up. Can I see a copy of that? There are no dates listed on the website.

          • Kaelee Clifford says:

            Hi Lewis – https://runsignup.com/Race/36796/RefundPolicyHere is the refund policy, and https://runsignup.com/Race/Events/WY/Wilson/GrandTetonHalfMarathonhere are the price jump deadlines.

          • Lewis says:

            That is pretty vague and misleading. There are NO dates on that refund policy. I’m going to register a complaint with Run Signup.

          • Kaelee Clifford says:

            Hi Lewis – The policy states that refunds are available until late registration. The late registration date varies per race so there are not definitive dates in the policy but you can find each race’s registration schedule on its own website. I apologize that this wasn’t clear, but you do still have the options of deferment or transfer. If you would like to find out more about these options, visit our website here.

          • Lewis says:

            It states full refund minus $10 processing fee during regular registration. Regular registration is March 5th thru June 1. So what’s the problem?

          • Kaelee Clifford says:

            Hi Lewis – Regular registration was October 7th through March 5th. Late registration began on March 5th.

  • Lorena says:

    My friend and I are suppose to run first heat… Can we run the second heat instead or can we change that somewhere? Thank you.

  • Taylor Mucaria says:

    For the Grand Circle Trailfest if friends/family want to come with me to the event and stay in my tent do they have to sign up for a race or can they just come? If they just want to stay with me but not run the races are they only allowed in the campsite and not the festival? Can they pay to just go to the festival?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Taylor – Family and friends can stay with you at the campground. They can also go to the festival – food will be available for purchase for non-runners.

  • Debbie says:

    Hi. I’m planning to sign up for the Yellowstone Half Marathon but have a few questions. Are there water stations on the trail – if so how many and at which points? Also, My husband and two children (7 and 9) plan to do the 5k. Any chance children under 12 are free? – or is there a discount for kids? The race prices make it a bit challenging for families to participate. Many thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Debbie – There will be aid stations with water near miles 3,5,7,9,11, and 12. Registration price is the same for each runner regardless of age.

  • Natalie Callinan says:

  • Scott Palka says:

    Hello, I need to see if I can get one more person in Zion Half. Scott Palka,

  • Trudy Zufelt says:

    I signed up to volunteer at the Zion Ultra on April 20 and 21 but haven’t heard about an assignment. My husband has already received his assignment as a medical volunteer. We are only going to have one car so it would be helpful if we could volunteer at the same aid station.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Trudy – We have specific assignments for medical volunteers, but not yet for general volunteers. That email will be going out on Monday.

  • Christy says:

    I didn’t receive my confirmation email and it seems registration never went through. Now that the race is sold out can I run it with my group unofficially? (No bib,etc.)

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Christy – Please email info@vacationraces.com and Kaelee will be able to check to see if you’re registered once she has your email address and/or last name.

  • Nisia says:

    Are cots included in tent camping?

    I am looking for 2 bibs for the Zion half marathon. I live in Calgary, Canada and missed the deadline. Please help!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Humaira – Your best bet at finding a bib is to post on our Facebook page, Zion Half Marathon.

  • Nim says:

    Is the Grand Canyon race happening this October?

  • Tracy Vazquez Cayler says:

    I have recently been diagnosed with a severe case of Anemia. As a result my oxygen levels in my blood are very low and causes me to tire with the smallest amount of exertion. I was deeply saddened when I was told that the race would have to be put on hold until the doctors find out what is going on. Would I be able to get a refund for this years race?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Tracy – Which race are you registered for? You can log in to your RunSignUp account and request a refund. If the refund deadline has passed, you will have the option of deferring to next year’s race or transferring to any of our other races.

  • Lisa Perry says:

    I can’t tell if I reserved a tent for my friend and I. I think I just said we would both be sharing a tent because I thought the tent was included in the registration. Can you check to see if we have a tent to share. We are camping for all three stages.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Lisa – One of you will need to reserve a campsite (they do come with registration) and the other can indicate that they are sharing a campsite. You will need to edit your registration by following these instructions:

      1. Log in to RunSignUp
      2. Click on profile
      3. Click on Manage Registration
      4. Click on Add Ons
      5. Make changes
      6. Click Continue

  • Lisa Perry says:

    My friend and I will not have a car at the race but we want to explore the parks after our run is finished. If we do o ur run early, will there be time to look around before the last shuttle back to race central leaves?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Lisa – It would be at your own risk of missing the shuttle back to the headquarters if you want to explore after your race. The shuttles will run until all runners are finished, so there is not a specific timeline for the shuttles.

  • Kate Sollitt says:

    Haven’t received water bottles, receipt for $50 Park foundation donation, nor training info that I registered for through Altitude Training, which is supposed to begin today, (signed up for 12 week plan).
    Please let me know when I should expect to receive any of the above.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Kate – The water bottle will be shipping in the next day or so, so it should be getting to you next week. Please email activeataltitude@gmail.com and Terry will be able to answer your Active At Altitude question.

  • Dan Knight says:

    for the Yosemite 1/2 where is the pick up location going to be so that I can find a hotel close to that?

    Hi, I need to drop out of the Coastal Redwoods Trailfest. My “profile” isn’t allowing me to request a refund. Is the event already under “late registration” already? Thank you,

  • Chris Heyer says:

    The Sierra Club recently told me they will pull my bib if I raise a dollar less than $1000 for their organization. Can they really bar me from running the Yosemite Half?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Chris – The $1000 has to be raised prior to the race to be able to participate. You will need to double check with the Sierra Club, but the way we handle our charity bibs is that if the funds aren’t completely raised we send an invoice for the remaining balance. Once that balance is paid the runner can pick up their bib.

  • eduardo+jose+paiva+borba says:

    Hi, i will run zion 100 km. Is there any mandatory equipment?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Eduardo – No mandatory equipment – just carry what is essential for you and the aid stations will have the rest.

  • Sarah says:

    How do I register for the Appalachian Triple? It doesn’t look like there’s an option for that – just the individual races. Help!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sarah – It sounds like you missed the announcement that the Shenandoah Half Marathon has been canceled so the Appalachian Triple is no longer available. Check out why https://vacationraces.com?p=1809here.

  • T Blackmore says:

    I deferred a race last year. Am I automatically entered for this year or do I need to re-register?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi – You are not automatically registered for this year. You should have received an email with a deferment code that you can use to register with. If you don’t have that code, please email info@vacationraces.com and Kaelee can look it up for you.

  • Katherine says:

    I got a private room. Do I have it all to myself?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Tracy – I checked your registration and it shows a campsite with a 4-person tent.

  • Shaniece Hoiland says:

    I am signed up for the Grizzly Double (Tetons and Yellowstone), I am hoping to get a refund. I have looked all over for an explanation of how to request one. It is still within the regular registration time period, which should only cost $10 beings it is not late registration yet. Please let me know what can be done. I do not wish to defer or transfer.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Shaniece – Grand Tetons and Yellowstone are both in late registration so refunds are no longer available. You do still have a few options: defer to next year’s race or transfer to any of our other races. Find out more about these options https://vacationraces.com/policies/registration/here.

    Thank you for your assistance.

  • Devin Ward says:

    I purchased my registration last year and had to defer my race to this year due to health complications. I was hoping that I would be able to beat this but it looks like I will not be able to run this Fall either. I completely understand that I will not be able to receive a refund but is there a site or Facebook community that I would be able to sell my registration if this race sells out? I hate to think that this registration would be wasted. I just want someone to be able to experience this amazing race that is able to physically handle 44 miles over 3 days. Please contact me or point me in the right direction.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Devin – I’m sorry to hear you won’t be able to make it to the event. You can use the deferment code you received for any of our other races if you would like, or you can sell it to another runner. Of course, this will work best if the event sells out – at that point you can guest post on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures, that you have bib for sell.

  • Iris flores says:

    I just deferred my registration for Zion half marathon on Sat 28Apr. What is the next step? If I want to sign up for next year what do I do with my deferred race?

      Hi Iris – You will receive an email with a deferment code in the next week or two. You can use that code to register for next year’s race or any of our other races.

  • Sarah Hatch says:

    John Moore AG M 70-74
    bib #2728

    I placed 5th in my AG, was told award would be mailed, no charge. Don’t have a time line, just curious when the delivery might be. Also I haven’t found the award pictures. Thanks for you help.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi John – Congrats on your finish! The replacement place medals should be on their way to us and we will ship yours out as soon as we get it – thanks for your patience!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Karen – We don’t have a list of pacers, but you are welcome to guest post on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures, letting others know you are looking for a pacer.

  • SUSAN says:

    Do you accept day of race registration?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Susan – No race day registration, but you can register the day before at the expo, as long as the race isn’t sold out.

  • Susanne Ferro says:

    Hello. I was a pacer and I think I left my glasses at the Straight Canyon aide station. They are prescription glasses with black frames white ear piece. I am hoping someone turned these. I tried tracking them done during the race without success. I hope you can help me. thanks

  • Jill Farar says:

    What are the hours of the expo at the Rocky Mountain half marathon. I don’t know if I should register to pick up at expo or race morning because I don’t know how late expo is open, if we will make it in time, and we are coming from North Carolina! Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jill – The expo will go until 6, with bib pick up until 7pm. You can register with your bib pick up option as the expo and if you don’t make it you can pick it up race morning. All bibs not picked up at the expo will be taken to the starting line.

  • Yenwen says:

    Hi, I registered for the glacier half marathon, which will be this Saturday. I tried to contact the even earlier and left messages on one of the phone numbers and on the website regarding the tent but didn’t get any reply. I and my friends decided to get a place to stay instead of camping. I would like to learn how to get the refund for camp site and tent I paid for when I registered for the race.

    Thank you!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Yenwen – I think I responded to your email today. If not, please email me at kaelee@vacationraces.com and I’ll take care of it for you.

  • Nicole says:

    Hi! I just registered for Joshua Tree. Do I need to call the RV/campground and make a reservation to camp? The last race I did with you guys it was part of the check out, so I just want to make sure I do what I need to do. Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Nicole – Campsites at the campground are first come first served, but there should be plenty for all who want to camp there. This campground is not managed by Vacation Races, as some of the campgrounds for other races are.

  • Margaret Schultz says:

    I’m really bummed. I tried to sign up last night for the Zion half marathon before it filled up. I entered the team I was going to join, America The Beautiful, and it asked for the team password. The Team captain tells me there is no password. So this morning I tried again and the race is full. I took a screen shot from last night when there were still openings and I wasn’t allowed to register. Is there anything I can do?

  • katrina says:

    hi is there a way to get a notification when 2019 trail races open for registration? I know they sell out fast and I don’t want to miss it.
    thanks in advance!!

  • Lucia says:

    Hi. I’m registered for the Rocky Mtn half marathon but I got in a bad bike accident this morning. I tried to go online to do a refund, but it doesn’t look like that option is available on my page. Is there anything I can do? My injuries from my accident are too much for me to be able to participate.

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Refunds are no longer available but race transfer, bib transfer, and deferment are until the end of the expo today. (I recommend race transfer or deferment at this point.)

      Tap the links way up at the top for instructions on each option.

  • Justin says:

    We selling 2 bibs to transfer for the Mt. Rushmore.

  • Andrea says:

    Registration opens next week for the Grand Teton half marathon – just wondering if I have time after opening or do they fill up quickly? How long did it take for last years race to fill (if it did)? Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Andrea – You should have time – the race didn’t sell out this year. However, we can’t be sure what not having the Yellowstone race in 2019 will do to registration – it will most likely bump up the numbers a bit, so you might want to get registered sooner rather than later.

  • Jasmine Lake says:

    Good Morning!

    I deferred my 2017 Joshua Tree Race, received the confirmation email but no code to register for the 2018 race. If I cannot run the 2018 race is a refund possible?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jasmine – A refund is no longer available but you can use your deferment code for any of our other races. If you need your code re-sent, please email info@vacationraces.com.
