Can I change my corral?
Yes, but please place yourself in the appropriate corral to ensure the balanced flow of the race is maintained. Please see the Help Desk at the Expo to change your corral.
I bought the ATB+ Defer to 2024 option. Am I automatically deferred?
If you purchased the ATB+ Defer to 2024 option and email us before March 17, 2023 indicating you would like to redeem your option to defer, we can remove you from this year’s race and confirm your deferral.
If ATB+ Defer to 2024 option is purchased after March 17, 2023 and you do not participate on March 26, 2023, then we will send you a promo code to register for 2024. Due to the high volume of inquiries and close proximity to race day, we may not be able to remove you from the participant list or email a confirmation during race week.
