Membership Discount

The membership discount will be applied during checkout.

For the registration process to recognize that you are a Pikes Peak Road Runners member, if you have not already claimed your PPRR membership within RunSignUp, you first need to go to the Club page for the Pikes Peak Road Runners and claim you membership.  This is done as follows.

Go to: https://runsignup.com/Club/CO/ColoradoSprings/PikesPeakRoadRunners
(For Southern Colorado Runner members, go to: https://runsignup.com/Club/CO/Pueblo/SouthernColoradoRunnersTriathlonClub)

In the left column of buttons, click on "Members".
Search for your name.
Click on "Is this you?"
An e-mail will be sent to the E-mail address of this user, which contains a link with instructions to complete the process.
 

Once your membership has been claimed within the RunSignUp system, you will then have an account with RunSignUp.  If you have a family membership, you can then add family members that live in your household.  Those family members will also be able to apply the membership discount.

When you register for an event that offers discounts to PPRR members, on one of the first Registrant screens, you'll see a "Have An Account?" message followed by a SIGN IN button.  Click on the SIGN IN button and sign in using your RunSignUp account information.  That will allow RunSignUp to recognize that you are a PPRR member, and the member discount will be applied.
