RACE DIRECTORS! Reserve your crew for your 2021 event NOW!

Pretzel City Sports is now taking timing reservations for 2021 events. This fall, we have 3 dates that are 100% booked and for which we had to turn work away. We expect that the same thing could happen in the Spring of 2020, despite us having more crews than almost any timer in the East.… Continue Reading

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 include all major credit cards, debit cards, electronic transfers, PayPal, etc. Once your entry has been accepted,  a confirmation screen will appear.  Please double check what you input since the “auto fill” on some systems may put in incorrect information! This will be followed up with a Confirmation Email to the address you supplied. If you don’t get an immediate confirmation, your entry MAY not have gone thru OR your security software blocks automatically generated emails OR you made a typo in your the email address that you input. If you do not get a confirmation, contact us via email at rhornpcs@aol.com.  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 one entry can be done per screen input/payment process. However, you CAN do multiple registration 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 as the vendor of record.

For weekend races, online reg closes at Midnight, the Wed. of race week so that race directors have time to download their entries and prepare their bibs/packets. Midweek races have a deadline of midnight, two 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.

Keep in mind that Pretzel City Sports can set up Online Registration for ANY type of event. In the past, we have even set up online registration for spin-a-thons, tennis tournaments, charity donations and wine & cheese fundraisers, just to mention a few. If you have questions pertaining to our Online Registration system, either before or after using it, click here.
