You must email us if you are transferring after registration closes (usually mid week of race week). We would much prefer to handle transfers by midnight Wednesday if at all possible.
Event Cancellation Policy
Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the event in the case of extended severe weather or other emergency. We will do everything possible to get the event in, but full refunds are not available if it is cancelled due to significant costs we must pay in advance of the race (e.g., insurance, permits, vendor deposits, advertising, graphic design, etc.) along with hundreds of hours of planning. If possible, we will reschedule rather than cancel the race. If it is cancelled or you cannot attend on the rescheduled date, we will provide a partial credit that can be used for Lord of the Springs, Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder or any Michigan Adventure Race this year or next, ending on Dec. 31 of the second year.
In the event of a thunderstorm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Extended severe weather may result in cancellation of the event.
