Questions pertaining to registration:

How much is it to enter?

150$ before June 1st and 185$ after. Note: Our registration company charges a processing fee of $8.50 at the time of checkout.

What do I get for that?

Check out the “what’s in it for you” page

Can I get a refund on my entry or have my race packet mailed if for some reason I’m not able to make it?

Sorry, but there are no refunds and no rain-checks.

That being said, you can arrange to transfer your entry to another participant (for the current year), which is done through our registration company for a fee of $33.50. As for race packets (schwag bag and its contents) you must be present at the event and pick up your packet in-person. We will not mail your race packet or its contents to you, so please don’t ask.

For all other questions, check out our “FAQ” page or the “Brass Tacks” page.

frame badge
This frame badge was inspired by the Madonna del Ghisallo, the legendary patroness of cyclists who occupies a small church atop a colle near Lake Como in Italy.

Additionally, you just might get a chance to grab some cold, hard cash from the legendary Sly Fox Cash Zone.

It ain’t easy bein’ cheesy. The Slyfox Gilly Cash Zone in full effect.
