Registrants with Priority Registration Status can select to not race in the current year’s race and maintain their priority status for the following year’s race by registering as a Skip-a-Year. Each racer can select Skip-a-Year only once in their racing lifetime.
- Priority registrant must select the Skip-a-Year option during online registration from March 1-31. Skip-a-Year is not available after registration closes.
- Skip-a-Year registrants must pay an administration fee of $35 for adults or $15 for juniors .
The Skip-a-Year registration will be FINAL for that year once registration closes.
Skip-a-Year racers are recognized as a priority registrant the following year using the normal registration process, which includes paying the full registration fee.
For racers with 10-Year Status, it is not necessary to use the Skip-A-Year option. This is because they can come and go from the race as they please without penalty — so there is no need to hold their spot by using Skip-A-Year.
Retracting a Skip-a-Year Registration
Skip-a-Year registrants may retract their Skip-a-Year option at any time during the current registration period by resubmitting their registration and deselecting the Skip-a-Year option.
Once registration closes, the Skip-a-Year decision cannot be retracted and will be FINAL for that year.
Any Skip-a-Year registrant who retracts their Skip-a-Year option is solely responsible to contact email@example.com to PAY THE ADDITIONAL AMOUNT OF $50 DUE FOR THE FULL REGISTRATION FEE. Failure to pay the additional fee by close of registration will nullify the retraction.
