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.
Refunds are only available in the case of a death in the family, military duty or significant financial hardship such as a lost job or major medical expense. Please make use of our free transfer process if you can’t race or purchase race insurance through BikeReg (covers some but not all reasons for not being able to race).

Click on Transfer to the right of My Upcoming Events. Enter in the email address of the person receiving the transfer and click the button again.

Detailed instructions and screenshots
If you cannot find a transfer, contact us at least one full week before the race and we will allow a partial credit for next year.
If you did not created an account. Go to the registration page and click “Contact Event” under the event name. Click on the Trying to Edit or Transfer Your Entry green box. On the next page, enter the email address that was used to register. An email will be sent to that address with a link to the page where edits and transfers can be made.
You must email us if you are transferring after registration closes (after Wednesday of race week). We would much prefer to handle transfers by midnight Wednesday if at all possible.
