Cancellation / Refund Policy:

The race organizers reserve the ability to cancel the event due to unsafe weather. Race organizers will make the best decisions when it comes to protecting the safety of all runners. This means we reserve the right to adjust, cancel, reroute, or reschedule as we see fit.

Because the bulk of our costs come before the event even occurs we will not be able to extend refunds to those who wish to cancel their registration. In the instance of mega wild weather we will assess things appropriately and fairly, to the best of our abilities. If the race is popular enough to create a waiting list, we will also treat your entry fairly with specifics TBD.

Race registration is non-transferable and cannot be rolled over to subsequent races, unless extenuating medical or life circumstances occur. We will always treat our community fairly but also ask that you be sympathetic about the realities of putting on a great event.



Each race will have a early Bib Packet Pickup the evening before the event. Details will be emailed to athletes and posted on website. 

Bib Packet Pickup will also be available at the venue prior to the race. 

We strongly encourage you to pick up your Bib and Packet early. Waivers are available for download on this site to speed up day of registration.

Be Good Stewards

We work closely with our host resorts to carefully design our courses and move gently thru the mountains we love. We utilize existing high traffic trail systems on the resorts to minimize the impact within the delicate high alpine terrain. 

Cirque Series diligently marks / unmarks our courses, provides event recycling, and encourages all our particpants to leave the mountains better then we found them. This is a celebration of the high places we love! 

Going To Good

We donate $1 of each registration fee to Protect Our Winters.

We also have an art auction within our vendor village, featuring the talent within our mountain community. The proceeds this season will be donated to different organizations working to better the world. These include Protect Our Winters, Sierra Club, and Sea Legacy.
