We are also adding the following events this year:

Registration confirmations usually take approximately 48 hours once you register so please be patient. Please print out a copy of your confirmation email as this will serve as your gate pass. If you do not receive any email confirmation around 3 days after registering, please go back and review/update your registration information to verify your email address has been typed in correctly. We have received a lot of emails that have been kicked back due to a bad email address. Also make sure your spam blocker is set to receive emails from Apollo.

Yes, the fee is $60.

There are NO rain checks.

21. What happened to the free T-shirts? Top of Page

Free T-shirts are available for pre-entrants only. We do this to encourage participants so they can get a free T-shirt and this helps us in establishing our orders. T-shirts will be available at the event for any of those that did not pre-enter.
