transferring or selling your entry

- Your entry is yours to do with as you wish. You have paid for it. You can sell or transfer it to whomever you want if (and only if) the race is not full and there no waitlist before transfer week.
- If the race is full we will have a waitlist and entries cannot be transferred to another runner.

- Runner details in our database will only be changed during "transfer week" which will be 5-9 January 2015. During this time we MUST get basic details for new runners - i.e. name, cellphone, emergency contact details. NOTE: we will only have a transfer week if the race is not full and there is no waitlist.
- There will be no transfer of entries after transfer week under any circumstances.


getting on the waitlist

- If the race is full and we have a waitlist, it will be linked from this page.

- A select few athletes that either increase the diversity of the race or competitiveness will be added to the front of the waitlist. These include runners from countries with five or fewer athletes represented and/or athletes that have demonstrated outstanding results in similar trail ultramarathon races.
