No Deferrals/No Refunds/No Transfers – There are no deferrals, no refunds, and no transfers for any reason, including injury. However, runners are allowed to switch from the 40 miler to the 20 miler, and vice versa, after you have signed up. Please note that you cannot switch races on race day.
FA50K – The spring FA50K will be Saturday, 3/28. Please note that we reserve the right to adjust the schedule pending trail conditions. An event invite will be set up shortly on the Facebook site.
This event will be a great opportunity to run the course with fellow participants, as it will be the last official training run before the GE40.
