The race pass includes these 10 events:
Learn more about these events here.
When you sign-up for the Race Pass, you have the choice of selecting to register yourself for all of the events or to receive a registration code to register for each one individually. If you choose to sign yourself up at the time of purchasing the Race Pass, you are permitted to later transfer your entry for any particular event to another person if ultimately you can't make the event.
If you choose to receive a registration code, then you will still need to register individually for each event. You also have the option to give that code to someone else. If you do ultimately register using a code but then need to transfer your entry, you can.
The deadline to purchase the Race Pass is January 31, 2022. We reserve the right to extend this but do not guarantee that at this time.
The duffel bags will be delivered to us in late winter and then available for pick-up at several of the packet pick-ups (Helderberg to Hudson/Miles on the Mohawk/Dodge the Deer). Once we have them (we will email you), they will also be available at the AREEP office during normal business hours and at other times for which an organized activity is occurring at the AREEP Office (ie. packet pick-up for another event at their office).
AREEP events consist of races that historically have both included a commemorative giveaway (ie. a shirt) as well as some more low-key events that did not have any physical item (ie. merchandise) giveaway. For 2022, in an effort to keep our entry fees low and also provide more options to our participants, we have made the change that none of our events include a merchandise giveaway as part of the base entry fee. For those that historically have, you now have the option to add the merchandise item for an additional fee. (As such, the entry fee for our road races and some of our trail races is now lower than previous years.)
Registering for the Race Pass does not include any merchandise item specific to an event; it is the equivalent of registering individually for each race without choosing (when applicable) the merchandise add-on. If you desire the specific merchandise item that is available as an add-on to a specific race, it can be purchased via that event's online store.
The flat fee of the Race Pass is independent of which races you ultimately choose, so yes, you may consider there to be 'more value' if you choose a longer race at an event offering multiple distances but it has no impact on your pass.
