Deferral Info

Although we look forward to seeing  you at our events, we understand certain things may come up that prevent you from attending. Please make note of our deferral and refund policies:

Check out our website for 2022 Leadville Race Series Deferral Policies and Details here!

*Deferred registrations must re-register during the early registration window. If the event fills when general public registration opens, prior to a deferred athlete registering, the athlete forfeits their deferred slot. 

*Reminder-  Racers must complete each event within the allotted cut off time in order to move on and be eligible for the next. If a racer does not meet the required finish time, he or she will not be allowed to continue in the Lead Challenge competition. However, the racer may continue racing as an individual by notifying Athlete Services via email. Each event must be attempted, failing to start any of the events will disqualify the athlete from all remaining events in the series. Athletes are not allowed to defer individual events from the Lead Challenge, no exceptions. The Leadville Race Series does not allow refunds, transfers or deferment in the midst of the Lead Challenge competition.


How do I defer my Leadman/ Leadwoman registration?

The defer option can be found by logging on to RunSignUp, navigating to your Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Defer Registration. Check out more information and how to defer here.
