2015 Results

Can I register for more than one series?

No, currently our registration system will only allow a runner to participate in one race series. You may, however, register for a race series and register for a separate race. For example, you may register for the TC Ultra Summit Challenge and the Medtronic TC 1 Mile.

Can I combine my race series entry with other offers and special codes?

Series registration is exclusive of other offers and special codes.

Is there a deadline to register for this race series?

Yes, the 2017 TC 5K, Summit, Summit MNy, and Ultra Summit Challenges will accept the first 1,500 registrants or will close on February 1, whichever comes first.

Can I transfer to a different distance for one of the races in my series? (Ex: Can I run the Hot Dash 5K instead of 10 mile or vis-versa?)

No, you may not transfer to any other distance within the race series you select. Please take special notice of the distances within your series, as you will acknowledge this in your registration. If you become injured or want to run another distance, you may register for that distance separate from your series. You will no longer be eligible to place in race series results.

When will I receive my gear and medal?

When registering for the series, please be sure to enter a valid U.S. or Canada mailing address for the mailing of your race series gear, which will be shipped mid-June. Finisher medals are distributed at the finish line race weekend after your final event near the exit of the finish chute.

Will there be prizes and awards?

The top 3 men and women who complete each challenge will be awarded a finisher certificate with his or her place and time! Due to the complexity of the race series, age group awards will not be awarded.
