Online Registration

THIS PAGE IS SOLELY USED TO REGISTER FOR EVENTS – specific details about a race can be seen on its app, on the Race Application Page.  TO REGISTER FOR AN EVENT – Races are listed by “race date”; scroll down to the date of the event and then click on that link. Site accepts all major credit cards, debit cards, electronic transfers, PayPal, etc. Once your entry is accepted, a confirmation screen will appear, and you can print out your receipt there.  Please double check what you input since the “auto fill” on some systems may put in incorrect information! STRICTLY FOLLOWING THE FORMATS ON THE INPUT SCREENS WILL MINIMIZE THE CHANCE THAT YOU WILL BE UNSUCCESSFUL IN YOUR ATTEMPT.

For both legal & data collection reasons, only 1 entry can be done per screen input/payment process. However, you CAN do multiple registrations without leaving the site. There is still a service fee for each person registered. Also, remember that your credit card statement will NOT list the race name, it will list Pretzel City Sports. For weekend races, online reg. closes at Midnight, the Wed. of race week.  Midweek races close 2 days before the event (a Thurs night event’s online reg. would close at midnight on Tues).  If you miss this deadline, most races allow runners to enter on race day, usually accepting cash or checks but rarely accepting credit cards.
