Happy Girls Bend Registration Button

(Now Open! Online registration closes May 22!)

Before you register, it is important to know that we hold our racers to three fundamental rules.  Please only participate if you’re willing to honor them!

  1. No Littering.  Nada.  We’re committed to this.  If you’re caught tossing away that bit of gel pouch you ripped off as you were running down the trail, you’ll be disqualified.  No exceptions.  We are lucky to be running in an inspiring, beautiful place.  It’s about respecting Mother Nature and the others using the trails behind you!
  2. Be Kind, Please.  Be kind to your fellow runners – no matter what your goals are for the race – and be kind to the event staff and volunteers.  Love and Respect – Please and Thank You.  It all starts with us.  Cheers.
  3. Choose Fun!  This is your chance to thrive.  If it ain’t fun, then why do it?

Refunds and Transfers

We understand that plans change and circumstances happen.  Given this, please be aware of our refund policy.  If the race director is notified of a need to withdrawal:

 

    • More than 60 days out from race day:  100% refund granted
    • 30-59 days out from race day:  50% refund granted
    • 29 days or less from race day:  no refunds granted and no transfers to other athletes permitted.

 

If you registered for the half marathon but would like to participate in a shorter distance event instead (e.g., 10K or 5K) instead, you must contact the race director 30 days prior and we will initiate the transfer process for you. We can transfer your entry to the shorter distance but you will not receive a refund for the difference in price. If you are transferring to a more expensive event (e.g., 5K to 10K or 10K to Half Marathon) you will need to pay the difference in price.

Athletes who cannot participate in the event due to an injury or medical issue only may transfer an entry to the following year if the race director is notified 30 days prior AND a note from a physician is received. Note that if there is a difference in race entry fees, or extra costs (t-shirts, etc.) the athlete will pay the difference. In the event of a transfer to the following year, it is the responsibility of the athlete to confirm with the race director one month prior to race day.

If you cannot participate, you are welcome to come to packet pick-up to receive your bib number and other items you purchased in advance or that come with registration. We are happy to mail them to you post-race, but ask that you send in a written request to the Lay It Out Events Race Director and a check for $10 to Lay It Out Events, Inc., 704 NW Georgia Street, Bend, OR 97701. You can also pick up your packet and goodies at our office in Bend post-race as well. If there are less than 30 days until the race, absolutely no refunds or transfers are possible. Thank you for understanding!

 

Email and Race Communications: 

By registering for one of the Happy Girls Runs, you agree to allow Lay It Out Events to communicate with you about the race via email. Some messages may include promotions, opportunities or information about our other events and races as well. You will always have the opportunity to “opt out” of further communications from us and we will never sell or give your email address away!
