We are not responsible for course sabotage or non-race personnel misdrecting athletes. And if you follow a pack of runners and know it's the wrong way, don't follow them. If there are any official course changes, a revised map will be posted on the website prior to the event AND announced at the race prior to the start.

4. Athletes in a postponed race will be transferred to the rescheduled date at no charge.

6. The XTERRA SoCal Trail Run Series cannot accept the risk of a disaster for everyone. Each athlete needs to accept the risk of his or her entry fee. There will be NO REFUNDS. The money you paid is spent developing that race.
7. If you are looking for some type of registration insurance - check out REGISTRATION PROTECTOR on the ACTIVE Network, which offers participants the option of purchasing Registration Protector when they register for events. Registration Protector insures a participant's full registration fee, for covered reasons. Check out (www.allianztravelinsurance.com/online/active). Note: We do not endorse this company or others, but check it out and make your own decision if you would like to purchase the insurance.

Why? We do not save any money if the race is postponed or you choose not run. We have paid for every supply and service needed for that race. We pay for all race supplies or services associated with that race, regardless of the outcome. These include paying for permits, rangers, our staff, offices, administration costs all year. It's not ideal, and nobody likes wasting money, but we unfortunately cannot predict what will happen on race day.
