Clinic Refund Policy

On the first day of the clinic, if you think that trail running is not for you, we will offer a full refund. If you are injured for 50% or more of the clinic, you may attend another trail clinic of the same distance (e.g.: you may attend another short course clinic if you are currently enrolled in a short course distance). This does not include race entry fees – we have separate Registration Policy for races.
