General Rules and Fine Print
Anybody who disobeys the orders of event crew and/or the medical team will be immediately disqualified or penalized. If the miscreant is a support crew member, the sanction will be applied to the registered runner.
The Golden Ultra does not provide registration refunds. You may transfer your registration to another runner or another year. If you transfer your registration to a future year we can offer you a 75% credit. To make these transfers, please follow these instructions from UltraSignUp:
The transferor will see a "Transfer Registration" button on their order edit screen. The order edit screen can be accessed via the Edit link on their reciept or in their registration history (if they did not register as a guest). The original order is "removed" and a 75% credit is added to the system for the exact event under the transferee's name and email. The transferee is also sent an invitation that will let them bypass a closed or filled event.
Any extras purchased (meals and accommodation, crew passes, etc) will have the same refund/deferral rules applied.
Golden is located in the Mountain Time Zone (GMT -7).
