To register, click the big orange ‘REGISTER!’ button at the top of the page. You will be taken to the RunSignUp website to register.

On the Race page, you will see a button ‘Sign Up’ at the top of the page, click on this button to begin the registration process. When Signing Up for a Race while logged on to RunSignUp, you will be taken to the Select Registrant menu where you can quick fill registration for accounts already linked on your RunSignUp account.

If the registrant is not available on the Select Registrant menu, then click on ‘New Registrant’. Complete all of the necessary information for each person you wish to register. You’ll get the chance to overlook your information and either confirm it, or add an additional registrant. Next, fill out your payment information and you will be all set. Look for an email confirmation.
