Registration FAQs

It’s time to make the commitment and put purpose to your training! Registration is available through a secure online registration platform generally until 2 days prior to packet pickup. If you have any registration questions or have transferred from previous years, be sure to email us at so we can help you and to confirm your registration asap!

Can I register on Race Day?
Yes, but if you can, please register ahead of time. It gets so busy on race day and we want to focus all of our energy on taking care of all of our athletes. If you really want to race and weren’t able to pre-register for whatever reason, we will take care of you. Ideally, sign up ahead of time so we can pre-order tshirt sizes and everything we need so we’re not guessing on total numbers. You know what it’s like when you’re trying to host a party and you don’t know who and how many are coming! Thanks so much for understanding!
Can someone else pick up my racing packet?

Yes, however, you must complete an authorization form to allow them to pick up your packet and send them with a copy of your ID. This form will confirm that you will be the individual participating in the event and that you agree to not allow anyone else to race on your behalf.

Registration Policies

There are no refunds issued for your registration (no exceptions); however, we do understand that things come up that are beyond your control. As a customer service initiative, we do offer the ability to transfer your registration to next year’s event, another upcoming Why Racing Event that year, or to transfer your registration to another participant. There is a $20 fee for this deferral process, you can only defer and transfer up to 10 days before the event. Reach out to “” for any questions.
