How Can A Duplicate Registration Charge Be Adjusted?
If when checking out you received a notice that we were unable to process your payment, it’s possible the transaction was declined due to failed address verification.
When this happens, your bank may still authorize the charge and therefore show in your bank account, but know that in this case the charge will not settle and should clear within a few business days.

No. While we do our best to provide a packet pick up location Friday night, we will also have registration open on Saturday morning for picking up your packets.
How Can I Sign My Waiver?
All waivers will need to be signed electronically. If you registered yourself (or a minor), then you signed the waiver during the registration process. If another person registered for you, then you would have received an email from eventelf.com asking you to complete your registration. During this process, you would sign your waiver.
In an effort to stay green, please do not bring printed copies of the waiver to runner check-in.

Race insurance is a mandatory fee that covers catastrophic events. It does not cover runner refunds.
