New Race Update!
Here are your choices for what to do with your registration:
- All entries will be automatically rolled over to the 2021 date of April 17, 2021, unless you would like to make any additional changes. If you allow your registration to roll over to 2021 this would include every add-on. If you simply want to participate next year, no action is required of you. If you decide to change distances in 2021 there will be no transfer fees.
- If you still want to be a part of the Martian Invasion of Races on your own time, you do have the choice to still participate virtually. If you choose to participate virtually you will receive your shirt, medal and add-ons in the mail in early August. We would invite you to a facebook event and send out a link for your results!
- If you do not want to participate in 2021, or virtually, your option will be to receive a 100% event credit. This credit will come to you in the form of a coupon code for the amount of your entry fee + any add-on fees, and the code will not expire for 2 years. This code can be used on ANY RF Event in those two years. Codes will be issued by July 2, 2020.
- Your final option is To donate your entry money back to RF Events to help us keep the lights on as we work to shuffle ahead and survive, so we can be here for the future and create quality events that let you meet your goals and put your hard training to use.
