Women's Race

 

 

Chicks Rule, 

Or At Least

 We Think So.

That being said we've decided that they need their own race ~ complete with fun and adventure designed for beginners. The Women's Race is a team-based race. Two-woman or adult/children teams run, walk and splash together over a course full of fun special tests that usually takes about 1 hour to complete.

Different contests for different women.

Top 5 finishing teams in each race category receive awards
Best Costume Contest - top 3 receive awards
Best Water Craft Contest - top 3 receive awards
Top Fundraisers - Overall Top Fundraiser receives award - Top 3 receive prizes

Best Costume Contest Who doesn't like costume contests? The Women's race will have a parade of all teams that have entered the costume contest. The parade will take place prior to the race from 8:00 - 8:25 am. The costumes will be judged during the parade and prizes will be awarded for the top 5 costumes during the awards ceremony.

Water Section When we say get creative, we mean it.  All teams must bring their own water craft and PFDs (life-jackets). Use your imagination and build a really awesome float or bring something as simple as a kick board. Please Read the Water Craft FAQ section.

Running/Hiking/Mystery The run / hike will be between 1 and 2 total miles. Expect plenty of mystery events mixed in along the route! Mystery events can range from balancing on a pipe, solving a word puzzle or making a basket by throwing an object into a barrel.

WHAT TO BRING
(What to Bring & Wear FAQs)

YOU WILL BE ACQUIRING SOMETHING THE SIZE AND WEIGHT OF A COKE BOTTLE DURING THE RACE. YOU WILL HAVE TO CARRY THIS TEAMMATE WITH YOU THROUGHOUT THE RACE.

You should have a way to carry food and water during the race, like a water bottle or camelback. We WILL have aid stations, but you might want your own stuff in addition.

Other Suggested Items: Sunscreen, hat and eyeglasses if you need them to read. A change of clothes and shoes for after the race. You, your clothes and your shoes will get wet during the race, so you might want to bring a trash bag for your wet clothes. You will be required to keep your shoes on during the water section; we don't want anyone to hurt their feet. A spare towel is nice for after the race and a few bucks for the race expo.

 

 

 

 

 

Refund Policy

No refunds under any circumstances.  Wait!  Well maybe.  We at terra firma understand that things change, sometimes out of your control and we never want to rip anyone off.  But please understand that we make a considerable investment in shirts, awards, dumpsters, porta potties, land use fees and a host of other expenses to put a race on.  We know your one fee doesn’t effect this number, but if we don’t have a policy and stick to it, where do we ever draw the line?

We think we’ve come up with a pretty liberal policy and hope you agree:

    • cancellations greater than 21 days prior to the event will receive a 90% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
    • cancellations within 15-21 days prior to the event will receive a 50% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
    • cancellations within 8-14 days prior to the event will not receive a refund but may receive a 50% credit
      towards another race in the same year.
    • cancellations within the last 7 days prior to the event are not eligible for any refund or credit because we’ve already spent your money.
    • alterations to the course, start time, disciplines and venue (to within a reasonable distance) are not
      grounds for a refund/credit, nor is plain ol’ bad weather.
