Only ONE team member needs to register initially to save the spots for the rest of the team. That first person we will call "Team Captain" for the rest of this explanation. During registration, he/she will set up a Team Name and Password.

After the team captain registers, he/she can share the Team Name and Password with the other team member/s, so that they can register and join the team.

Each team member pays individually. The Team Captain is only required to pay for him/her self.

Determining who the Team Captain will be ahead of registration opening would be best to avoid multiple teams being created for the same people. Since the spots for remaining team members are saved, they can register at their earliest convenience after the Team Captain has created the team.

ALL team members MUST be registered by September 15th.



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 link to register that is valid for 3 days. After 3 days, if the link is not used, the spot will roll to the next person and so on.


If 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 service fee)

July 16th – October 2nd: 50% refund of registration fee  (excluding Run Sign Up service fee)
After October 2nd: 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.

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


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.
