Some of you have inquired and yes, registration is opening soon!
Today, May 26th at noon to be exact!

We will have some awesome news to share with you on the 27th check here, on Facebook or @mtngoatrunning on Twitter.

For registration here is a run down how it is going to work since this is a different registration site and set up all together.

Options:
You have several registration options:




  • Full Series- Adult    Note: Only the first 100 registrants will have the option for a free Salomon Tech Shirt, if you don't see the question for shirt size you are not one of the first 100.
  • Full Series- Youth
  • Individual Race- Adult
  • Individual Race- Youth

Click on the plus sign to see details. Once open you will see the registration button. Click the Register Now button to begin.

















The details for the long sleeve shirt have not been ironed out yet. When they have been determined you will be able to purchase one or upgrade (for first 100 adult full series registrants). 

If you have any questions contact us.

Update on Registration and More

Since it has been a while, figured an update was due.

Due to our growth we no longer fit in the QBP parking lot. The start/finish area has moved in to the park. All races will start/finish by Jan's Place. For the October races Jan's Place will be open so we can use it to shelter us from the cooler evening weather.

With the location change the courses will be different from years past. We are working on the courses and as soon as we have them set the website will be updated. This does include the Youth Run course also.

The registration site has changed.
  • Pre-registered runners will not have to fill out a waiver on race day. 
  • The online registration fee is less.
  • There will be an option for an alternative race shirt
  • There will be pre-registration available for the Youth Run-It is still free!
Speaking of shirts, once again the first 100 people who sign up for the Full Series -Adult will receive the Salomon technical shirt as a part of his/her registration. Once the 100 registrant mark is reached, the site will be down temporarily to remove the shirt option. It will then be back up so if you see that Full Series -Adult is not available please be patient it will return shortly.

Once we get the alternative shirt details determined registration will be open and explained. 

One last update, a teaser though. We have some bigs things planned for this year that you won't want to miss, so keep an eye out!
