Registration & Packet Pickup

Registration changes will not be accepted after 4pm on Friday, January 24th. If you wish to make a change to your participation at this point, you will need to purchase a registration for the new event. This allows our limited registration staff to effectively focus on preparing all Festival events. 


Registration and transaction fees are nonrefundable, including in the event of cancellation. Registration is not transferable to another person or another event for any reason, including injury. Competing under another person’s name will result in disqualification.

For timed events, packets include race bib and timing chip. For the Luminary Loppet, the “packet” is a glow stick (color depends upon start time). The virtual race bag will be available to all participants online.
