The VHTRC Entry Process

The VHTRC uses an entry system designed to promote fairness and transparency, and also to avoid anxiety on the day that registration opens. Our system is a bit different. Some questions and answers:

Am I Going to Get In?
You have a shot at entry only if you complete both steps of our entry process.

How Will I Know If I Get In?
It all depends on how many people apply. If more than 120 runners apply, we will automatically hold a lottery that determines who gets into the race. If you win the lottery, you're in the race -- as long as you pay your entry fee on time. If you lose the lottery, you can pay to join the preference-weighted wait list. The lottery results will be public and announced by January 15.

Why Isn't Entry First-Come, First-Served?
We don't like obsessively refreshing our browser 15 seconds after a entry opens either! So we designed our entry system to promote fairness, transparency, and above all, calm. For more information about the VHTRC's entry system, check out the detailed explanation.

The pace of entry is casual, and you do not need to be the first to do something. But opening and closing times are automatic and final. Don't wait until the last minute! There is no sleepy lackey turning entry off. The clock on our server does. It is punctual.
