Policies

AKA...the fine print
Home → About EX2 → Policies

Racing is super fun…but we know sometimes life gets in the way.  Occasionally, you can’t attend a race that you signed up for because you get injured, your childcare plans fall through, or you just change your mind.  Very rarely, we may need to cancel an event because of really, really bad weather, COVID, etc.  We believe our policies covering these situations are extremely fair and flexible.  Please note that these policies were slightly updated in December 2021 and will be effective for all 2022 events.

If EX2 Cancels a Race…

EX2 Adventures reserves the right to alter, postpone, or cancel any event for safety concerns, both natural and man-made. Whenever possible, cancelled events will be rescheduled to a later date.

If WE (EX2) ever cancel a race or are required to cancel a race for ANY reason at ANY time, then you will have these options:

1. Attend the make-up date if one is offered;
2. Defer (i.e., receive a 100% credit); or
3. Receive a full refund (minus the processing fee that was charged when you registered).

If You Can’t Attend a Race…

If YOU (participant) cannot attend an event for any reason and it’s 14 or more days out from the event, then you will have these options:

1. Defer (i.e., receive a credit for a future EX2 race) minus $10;
2. Transfer your entry to someone else; or
3. Receive a refund (minus $10 and the processing fee that was charged when you registered).

Some Important Notes…

Within 14 days of an event, there are no deferrals or refunds if you cannot attend an event for ANY reason.

Adventure races, cycling events, and XTERRA EX2 can be deferred to the same event the following year.  Running races can be deferred to any other running race (where registration is open in RunSignUp).  Any price difference is paid when you register for the new race.
