    Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Is parking available? Yes. There is plenty of parking at the Ranch.
    2. Am I guaranteed a shirt? To be guaranteed a shirt you must register by March 10th. We always order extras and you will see inventory when you register. We always have other swag available if we run out of shirts.
    3. Is there race day registration? No. ALL registration is online. There is very limited cell service at the Ranch so we will be unable to take race day registrations.
    4. Will you cancel the race if it’s cold, snowing, windy or rainy? No. We will hold the event rain or shine. Lightening will delay the event, but that chance is very, VERY slim.
    5. Can I bring my dog? Unfortunately this is one event we host where dogs are not allowed.
    6. Can I bring my RV or trailer to camp in? You can camp in a tent, car, truck or van. RV’s and Trailers are not allowed. There are different options for camping. You can add this on to your registration. Want to stay in a lodge instead, visit Colorado Guest Ranch - Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch, Loveland CO.
