Invited entrants will be notified via email on the day that Invitational Entry opens with instructions on how to bypass the random field selection.

Additionally, ALL previous male and female overall champions will be offered a complimentary entry.  However it is their responsibility to contact the race director to secure instructions for bypass. Complementary entrants must confirm their entry by the close of the Invitational Entry period.
Runners receive only one bypass regardless of if they have won a bypass slot for several categories. 

If you think you merit an invitation and did not receive one, contact  our race director. If you miss the deadline at the close of the Invitational Entry period, you may choose to register for the random selection.
