2020 Registration and FAQs

Register for all events by clicking Register below. If you are registering for the Challenge Series, please read instructions below before clicking Register.



Please note: This year we will be using block pricing for our fee schedule. Here's how it works:

There will be a set number of spots available across all events for each block. Once the number of spots are filled, there will be a price increase. Price increases will not be by date, but by number of spots filled. We have based the blocks on historical registration data.

The current pricing will be shown when you register
