Refund/Transfer Policies

Please understand that it is a risk to pre-register for a race. You may get injured, change your mind, or decide to attend a wedding instead.  We do not give refunds or transfer your entry to another runner.  It takes too much time for us to process these types of transactions.  Putting on a race is expensive and time consuming.  Most of the costs for a race (permit fees, advertising, insurance, preparation costs, food costs, and more) occur well before the event even happens.

****If you cannot run due to injury or an emergency, you can carry your race entry over to the 2018 Cle Elum Ridge race, provided you give us at least 21 days notice prior to the event you cannot run. In this case notice must be given by Sept. 1, 2018.  No exceptions for any reason. You may also transfer to a 2018 Bellingham Trail Running Race. Your transfer is good for 1 year from the date of the race (Sept 22, 2018 until Sept 22, 2019).

If you would like to earn free or reduced entry into Cle Elum Ridge 25k/50k, you may contact us ahead of time about volunteering or bringing a volunteer to a race. Because we have limited volunteer positions, you will need to set up the volunteering with us ahead of time to get free/reduced entry.  For more information on this option, please email us at

No refunds of shirt fees. You must pick up your shirt at the race. We do not mail shirts please consider this before purchasing. No exceptions. Thanks for understanding!
