That said, individual registrants who would like to transfer their registration to another individual may do so through Sunday, October 1st at midnight. Participants are responsible for finding someone to buy their entry and must handle any financial exchange on their own. After agreeing to the sale/purchase, the seller may initiate a transfer via the link on the front of the event website. They must have their original confirmation number (CLICK HERE) and the buyer’s email address to initiate this process. The buyer will then receive an email enabling them to register. A transfer fee of $10 per individual applies.

That said, the participant shirts are only available in women’s cuts and awards—both age group and overall—will be given to female participants only. If a male is interested in participating in this event to win, get an award, or set a personal record, we would be happy to suggest some other events in the local area that would be better suited for those goals.
