If you simply can’t make the race but it is not canceled, find someone to take your place and use the transfer process below. We WILL refund your shirt or other merchandise ordered if you cannot race as long as you cancel before the Monday of race week.
We are not able to offer refunds due to significant, nonrefundable expenses we pay in advance of the race. Except… full refunds are available in the case of a death in the family, military duty or significant financial hardship from COVID due to a lost job or major medical expense.

Event Cancellation Policy
Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the event in the case of extended severe weather, health emergency or any other emergency. We will do everything possible to get the event in, but refunds are not available if it is cancelled due to significant costs we must pay in advance of the race (e.g., insurance, permits, vendor deposits, advertising, graphic design, etc.) along with hundreds of hours of planning. If possible, we will reschedule rather than cancel the race. If it is cancelled or you cannot attend on the rescheduled date, we will provide a 100% credit that can be used for Dirty Duel OR Hurt the Dirt anytime in the following two years, ending on Dec. 31 of the second year.
In the event of a thunderstorm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Extended severe weather may result in cancellation of the event with no refunds (but we’ll offer a partial credit for a future race).
