We are currently doing pre-registration for this race at a discounted rate. We are actively working with Brundage Mountain, the City of McCall, and the Forest Service on routes and permits. We have the go ahead from Brundage, and the City of McCall, we are waiting on the Forest Service to do their due diligence on the route before issuing us a final permit. We hope to have everything settled soon. Registration prices will go up at that point. All pre-registration fees will be refunded by April if a final permit is not issued.
