Should the January 2023 event be forced to shut down (not likely), we will convert to a Virtual event, whereby you can either complete the race onsite at Lake Geneva Canopy Tours or on your own turf. ASR will ship your swag directly to your home at no cost.
If you don't feel comfortable attending the event, you have a two options (you must make a decision to transfer using the options below before January 20, 2023 or you will forfeit the race entry):
1st Option: Convert your race entry to a Virtual Format ... complete your challenge on your own turf and at your own pace (must complete by Feb 28, 2023). To convert your race to a Virtual Format:
2nd Option - You may transfer your race to another racer either as a gift or allow them to purchase the registration
NOTE: You may not transfer your race entry to a future event. You will forfeit your entry if you do not attend the onsite race and do not choose option 1 or 2.
If you’re unable to attend the event for any reason, you may transfer your race to another racer to receive a refund. Learn more about how to transfer your race here.
We no longer allow transfers to future events.
ASR does not provide refunds nor transfers. If you have any questions, please write in to email@example.com.
