Deferring Registration and Legacy Runner Status

If you choose to defer your 2024 in-person registration until 2025, you will need to participate in our Virtual race to maintain your Legacy Runner status.

We do not have bye years, you must run consecutive years in order to maintain your legacy status. If you cannot make it to the in-person race you can choose to participate virtually. Simply sign up for our Virtual race, any distance and you will keep your Legacy Runner status. If you miss a year, your Legacy status resets to zero.
