How do I get the military discount?

As you go through the registration process, you'll be asked on screen #3 if you qualify for a military discount. Simply select "I DO qualify" and enter the military branch you're associated with. You'll see the question "Do you qualify for a military discount?" on the 3rd registration screen. 

Please see the full "Military Policy" to determine whether you qualify.

  • Jen says:

    I did not retire from the military but served six years on active duty and have a DD214. Do I qualify for the military discount? Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jen – Yes, you qualify for the military discount. Just be sure to take a picture of your DD214 to show when picking up your bib.

  • Maggie says:

    I am the spouse of a veteran who served active duty for 5 years. He is not a retiree. Do I qualify for the spouse discount?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Maggie – You would qualify if you have a current military ID. It sounds like you most like do not qualify, but your spouse would if he has a DD214.

  • Christine Ruiz says:

    You don’t list retiree children as eligible. Was that an oversight? My daughter is 11.

  • Clare says:

    I am not a retiree or active duty. I served in the Army National Guard for 9 years which includes 1 year of active duty. I have a DD214, do I qualify?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Clare – Yep! Just bring a copy of you DD214 (you can take a picture of it on your phone) to the expo when you pick up your bib.

  • Allen says:

    I was honerably discharged as 2lt in National Guard but did not serve on active duty beyond basic and advanced infantry training and summer camps. My unit was not called up. Am assuming I do not qualify.

  • Michelle Stephens says:

    Does my fiancΓ© qualify with my military discount as well?

  • Seely says:

    My step brother is active in the air national guard. do I qualify?

  • Nathan Lyons says:

    Just curious. I am a veteran, but also current state law enforcement. Anything for current law enforcement? Also, can this discount be used with other discounts, like volunteering at your events?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Nathan – We only offer a military discount – no law enforcement discounts. Only one discount can be used per registration.

  • Mike Pigg says:

    What a great way to honor vets and active duty. Thank you for offering the Military discount.

  • Stephanie says:

    Is there race day signup for the Smoky Mountains Half?

  • Elisha Lin says:

    Hi, I may have mistakenly selected the military discount option and I realize that I may not actually qualify. This is my first half-marathon (Joshua Tree) and I want to correct this if possible! I had no intention of taking advantage of the system or disrespecting those who served. I sent an email but I have not received a reply. What should I do? Thank you!

  • John Alexander says:

    Thank you for recognizing Veterans. It means a lot.

  • Mark W. Weedon says:

    Good morning; I have veteran status on my drivers license which was verified with the state using my dd214 will this suffice as verification?

  • Chris says:

    I am a vet with a DD214 a old ID card, and a uniform. Do i qualify? Just kidding i read the policie. Lol Thanks for the discount. Was a other reason why i wanted to run one of these races

  • Karla says:

    I am unable to sign up for the military discount. It seems as if it is frozen. Has anyone else had this problem?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Karla – You should be able to check the box on page three of registration to indicate that you qualify for the military discount. Which race are you trying to register for?

  • Chad Ellis says:

    Do you offer the military discount on the Global Races?

  • Enrique Zapien says:

    I just realized that you offer a military discount for veterans. I don’t remember seeing this option when I registered for the Yosemite half marathon. Is there any way to receive the discount after registration completing the registration?

  • Ben Smith says:

    My VA ID and TX drivers license identify me as a veteran, will I still need my dd214 copy at registration or would those identifications suffice?

  • Ally says:

    Hi, I just registered for the Grand Quad Challenge (Grand Teton/Yellowstone) event. But the military discount wasn’t an option during registration. Is this only for smaller races? Thank you!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Ally – Sorry about that – we just fixed registration to include the military discount. I will issue you a refund.
