Can’t make the event due to a conflict or not comfortable for in-person racing?
You can participate virtually with us!! We learned a lot from the 2020 pandemic, one of which being the limitless virtual world, where scheduling conflicts and traveling are no longer a problem. You'll have all weekend, starting March 19th, to complete your virtual event, while receiving all the glory including all the swag and even an opportunity to submit your race results. Unfortunately, you won't be eligible for awards, but you will have the opportunity to download a finishers certificate upon completion.
Race Refunds & Event Cancellations: We understand life happens and things may come up. We’ve implemented a defer and transfer policy for FREE up to a certain date for all High5EM events. Transfers or deferments made after said date will incur a small fee for administration purposes. In the case of event cancellation due to public safety, inclement weather or some other unforeseen power at be, the event will be rescheduled for March 27th. In the event the race cannot be held on the 27th, the entire event will then become virtual.
