In the event that the race sells out, we will maintain a waiting list.  If other paddlers cancel, we will contact individuals on the waiting list to register.

When a name rolls to the top of the waiting list that racer is notified and will receive a code to register that is valid for 3 days. After 3 days, if the code is not used, the spot will roll to the next person and so on. 



In the event that the race sells out and there are paddlers on the waiting list willing to take your spot, we will offer a refund according to the following schedule:


  • Up to and including July 15th: 75% refund of registration fee (excluding Run Sign Up fees)

  • July 16th – October 7th: 50% refund of registration fee (excluding Run Sign Up fees)

  • After October 7th: no refunds

If we do not have paddlers on the waiting list willing to accept a race entry, then unfortunately we will not be able to offer a refund. The refund is only issued after someone on the waiting list accepts and registers for your spot.



With the exception of wait-list transfers, entries are non-refundable and non-transferable. In the event the race is cancelled due to extreme weather, fire, or for some other unforeseeable event outside of our control, we cannot offer refunds.

Chattajack does NOT offer racer-to-racer bib transfer or deferrals to the following year.
