Online Registration

THIS IS NOT THE PAGE TO FIND DETAILS ABOUT A RACE; THAT INFO IS IN THE RACE APP PAGE.  THIS PAGE IS SOLELY USED TO REGISTER FOR EVENTS. To register for an event, scroll down this page to its “race date” and then click on that link. Payments methods accepted: 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 INSTRUCTIONS & 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 be 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
