How to obtain your discount

For instructions on activating your discount, see this instruction page.

​Refunds Due to Orders

If any active duty service-member registers for a race and subsequently receives orders that prevent them from attending the race, we will refund your registration fees 100% including race extras and processing fees and will give you a free entry into any one of our races once you return from service.

Registrations that use the military discount cannot be transferred or sold, but are subject to our normal refund and deferment policy for reasons other than deployment.

Thank you for serving!

    I’d like to say thank you for providing all military (active, reserve, & retired) and veterans the opportunity to use the military discount. Because of this discount, I actually opted to run a double and also signed my s.o. up for a double too (he won’t like it when he finds out, lol)…Thank you again, looking forward to the Smokey Mountains and also celebrating my birthday that weekend too!
