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, 2021. We reserve the right to extend this but do not guarantee that at this time.

The blankets will be available at the packet pick-ups for the first 2 events (Brave the Blizzard/Druthers Helderberg). If you do not get yours then, they will be available after that from the AREEP office during normal business hours or at other times for which an organized activity is occurring at the AREEP Office (ie. packet pick-up for another event at their office).

As described in "How does it work?", two perks of having the Race Pass include the ability to transfer your entry* to anyone at any of these events (even if the event is not otherwise allowing transfers) AND to do so for free (even if the event otherwise has a transfer fee)!

Transfers are completed through your Confirmation Page for that respective event, by which you click a button to generate a transfer code that you give to someone else to replace you at that event.

*Transfers MUST be completed at least one week prior to the event. Transfers are NOT permitted the week of a race.

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.

Events With Races on Different Days
Do note that as an added bonus, if an event offers the choice to also run multiple distances (ie. a Friday night 5K/Saturday morning 13.1M like at the Druthers event), those with a Race Pass can do them both at no extra charge. (Those without Race Pass must pay an additional fee to add on the second race.) To be clear, this perk only applies to a single person per event; you cannot give an entry to a different person for one of the days as part of your pass.

There are no refunds*, with no exceptions. If ultimately you cannot attend an event, you are welcome to transfer your entry to someone else. As part of your Race Pass purchase, we are considering you a supporter (/sponsor) of our 2021 Race Series and your name will be printed on a Step & Repeat display that will be at all events.

*If an event's date is changed or if an event is canceled, you will receive a code to register for any other AREEP event in the upcoming 12 months from the scheduled date of the impacted event. You are welcome to share/sell this code as you so choose.
This is permitted through January 31. To do so, sign up for the Race Pass, then send an email to events@areep.com that tells us your name, that you just signed up for Race Pass, and which races you had already registered for. We will refund the amounts paid for any of those 2021 races if they are otherwise included as part of the Race Pass. Any deferred 2020 Druthers Helderberg to Hudson Half Marathon entries are exempt from this (You do not receive a refund).
