Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: Entry fees to our races are non-refundable, and we do not offer transfers or deferrals to future races. Only registered runners can participate, and you may not exchange your entry with another individual. However, with advanced notice, we are happy to credit part of your entry fee to a future event. A credit worth 50% of your original race fee will be issued if the cancellation is received at least 3 weeks prior to the race. There will be no credits or refunds provided if a cancellation is made within 3 weeks of the race. Credits will be available for 1 full year from its issue date. OR you can exchange your current entry with another runner, provided it’s requested more than 3 week prior to the event.
Hosting a trail running event is an expensive and risky endeavor. All race costs are paid for well in advance of race day, so there is no financial gain to be made if a person does not show up on race day. We want all of our registered runners to show up, run, and have fun. While we understand that injuries, conflicts, emergencies, deaths, and other unfortunate events happen and may impact your plans for participation, we must adhere to our cancellation policies.
We do not cancel races due to rain or heat. If a race location is changed, but still hosted on the same day, we will automatically transfer the registration over to the new venue, or entrants may choose to run the race remotely and we will mail awards. If a race is postponed all entrants will be transferred to the new date.
If the situation does arise where Shelli Huether Honor Run Inc must outright cancel an event, for any reason, there will be no refunds. This could include earthquakes, floods, extreme weather, unsafe air quality, pandemics, or any other “Act of God”. There will be no refunds, but future race credit or deferrals will be available. We will communicate with all registered runners as soon as possible regarding the cancellation and any pertinent information.
Q: I am interested in doing a trail run but I’m mostly a hiker. Is walking allowed?
Q: How should I dress for the race? Is there anything I should consider bringing?
Q: What kind of shoes should I wear for trail runs?
Q: Where can I expect aid stations on the course?
If you typically use energy gels or bars during a race or other snacks, you should bring those with you.
Q: Is there anything I should bring for after the race?
A: We recommend bringing a set of dry clothes, extra shoes and socks so you can change out of damp attire and keep warm. We provide a lunch half-way through the race, though you should take along any specific snacks or preferred foods you usually eat for the rest of the time and for after.
