Event Registration Policies


We have partnered with FanShield, an industry leader in registration protection. We recommend that you add this during checkout. This allows registrants to receive up to a 100% reimbursement if they are unable to attend for a variety of reasons. If unable to attend, you may file a claim. Please contact FanShield with any questions. If you purchase their insurance, they with email you additional details.

Please email if they do approve your claim so that we know to remove your registration.


You may transfer your entry to another registrant as long as it is before the transfer deadline (2 weeks before race day) and a waitlist has not opened.

In order to begin the transfer process, you (Transferor) must email with the full name and email address of the person you would like to transfer your registration to (Transferee). The transferee will then receive a discount code for 75% off of the original amount paid by the transferor. The transferee will the use the code to register at a discounted rate.


You may defer your registration to another Wolf Creek Race Management event of the same or shorter distance. 

In order to begin the deferral process, you must email with the event that you would like to switch from and to. 

There will be a $15 administrative fee charge for all deferrals.


Once the Wait List is activated for a race, you will no longer be allowed to transfer your registration. You may still defer by following the process above. For every deferral, a spot opens up in the race and the next person on the waitlist will be contacted to register. If an entry is not accepted within 24 hours, the next person on the wait list will be contacted.


NO REFUNDS. We recommend purchasing race insurance through FanShield during the registration process. This will allow you to file a claim if you are unable to attend the event, and possibly receive compensation if your claim qualifies. Wolf Creek Race Management has nothing to do with this process.
