    Hello, I had my entry from last year ride deferred as I could not make it after signing up. What do I have to do to re-activate this entry. Thanks.

    3-day Event looks interesting (if frightening). I entered the 2016 race just after the 2015 one in that wee “Enter for next year while you’re still high on the endorphins” window.

    I’m hoping/guessing there’s going to be an option to transfer over and pay the difference in entry?
