How to Save Money On Our Races

We don't have "sales" or offer promo codes for our races, but there are still ways to save money. 

1. Register Early: Don't wait to register. If you think you want to run, sign up right away to lock in the very best pricing. Don't worry, you're protected by our ridiculously generous (and unique) refund/transfer/deferment policy. Once you've registered for the race, start locking down your travel details. The further in advance you set up your flights/hotels/etc. the more money you'll save.

2. Help Out: We always need people to help run expo booths, aide stations, help run social media accounts, etc. and we provide generous compensation in the form of free race entries, t-shirts, and more. Take a look at the following programs and select one that's right for you: 

3. Military Discount: Okay, this one isn't available for everyone, but we give members of the military and their families special treatment including discounted registration fees and some additional refund/transfer/deferment options. Learn more about our special military programs.

    Is there a discount for native American runners?

  • Carllene+Johnson says:

    Do you offer discounts for native runners?

    I don’t see a volunteer section for great smoky mountains. And what are the reward options for various volunteer jobs?

  • Sonia Castellon says:

    I seen this on Facebook “Sign up before the next price jump (Aug. 5th, 11:59pm) to save $20 on each registration and another $10 if you join a team! (Race day is Oct. 20th.)” i registered a team
    a team and we did not received the $10 off. How can i get my team to get that discount? We are a Run Club out of the Los Angeles. Team name: VRLA aka Valleyrunners LA.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sonia – Sorry for the confusion – the team discounts are given the week of the race as long as you have the required six runners.

  • Innan Perez says:

    I am a legacy runner interested in volunteering to earn a $100 discount for next year’s race. Unfortunately there are no positions available. Is there a way that I can be contacted in case a volunteer is unable to fulfill their duty and I may take their place? Thank you so much for your time and consideration. 951-500-7088

  • Michel Lynch says:

    What happened to the $99 early bird price? Sign up by March???

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Michel – Early bird registration is $109. We mistakenly had the incorrect price of $99 on the website the morning registration opened but fixed it quickly. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Avis Brodess says:

    Hi,
    I’m wondering if you offer discounts or have a catagory for runners with disabilities?
    Pretty much like for marathons and Triathlons?
    Thanks so much!

  • Dl says:

    Have a discount code but already paid.. can I get price adjustment?

  • Bertha Beall says:

    Do you still offer Discount for Native Runners?

  • Tiffany Brand says:

    Do you offer multi-race discounts? If you sign up for one than one race.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Tiffany – Unfortunately, we don’t. The best way to get a discount is to volunteer at a race. This can earn you a $50-$100 discount.

  • Julia Rankin Hazlewood says:

    Good Morning! I’ll be participating in GSM Half on 9/7, but wouldn’t mind helping with the expo or 5k on 9/6. I do have a question, though…do all volunteer positions offer a discount for future races or only specific ones? I saw that all of the ones specifically noted for $100 credit are already full. Thanks!

  • Jack says:

    Seems like a very expensive race

  • Sitaram says:

    Hi – I am from Phoenix and interested in running lake Powell half marathon. Could you please provide me any coupons code to register or Traveller discount ?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sitaram – The best way to earn a coupon is to volunteer at an event. You can volunteer at Lake Powell and apply that code to a future event if you would like as well.

  • Donna Smith says:

    When will 2020 registration open

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Donna – I’m happy to help you – which race are you referring to? Most races open about two months after the current year’s race.

  • Linda says:

    Hello, my sister and team just returned from Grand Circle Trailfest. They were enthralled by the beauty and quite pleased with this well organized event.
    I am a hiker/walker, not a runner. Can I participate?

  • Cliff Durham says:

    Let’s say I want to run all the vacation races half marathons in a year. Do I need to register for each individually or can we work something out so I can register for all at once?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Cliff – There is not a way to register for all of the races at once, unfortunately. You will need to register for each race separately.

  • Susie Johansen says:

    Do you extend discounts for teams – if so, how many people need to participate to qualify?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Susie – I’m not sure what you mean by extending discounts for teams. We have offered a $10 refund the week of the race if a team has the required six runners. However, moving forward starting in 2020 we will be offering a memorabilia item instead of the refund.
