Run Bum Volunteer Race Entries —- 5/7/2019
How to Get Free Entries to Run Bum Races
1. If you volunteer for 8 hours or more at a single race, (hours may not be added together), you can get one (1) free entry to any race of 50 miles or less that is not sold out.
2. If you volunteer for 12 hours or more at a single race, (hours may not be added together), you can get one (1) free entry to any race of 100 miles or less (Does NOT include Wild Florida 120, Georgia Death Race, or UTE 100) that is not sold out.
3. If you volunteer for 12 hours or longer at the Wild Florida 120, Chattanooga 100, or Ute 100, you get a free entry to that race BEFORE it sells out or you can get a free entry to any other Run Bum race that isn’t sold out. (except GDR). For example: If you volunteer for 13 hours for the UTE 100, then you get a free entry to the following year’s UTE 100. This is only good for the following year. You cannot skip a year.
4. You must enter your volunteer hours information into the Volunteer Verification Form https://www.runbumtours.com/volunteerverification
You may use your entry for up to one (1) year past the volunteering event. This is one year for the registration opening date, not the race date.
For example: You volunteer March 1, 2020 for 8 hours at a race. You then want to run a race in November 2021, which is 1 year past your volunteer date. The registration opens February 25, 2021. This is okay, you can register for that race because the registration date is within the year of volunteering.
You must meet any eligibility requirements for a race.
If volunteer hours are required to RUN a race, you cannot use those SAME hours to redeem a race entry!
Hours are not transferable to another person.
To Redeem a Race Entry
You must send an email to one week before a race goes on sale (not sooner or later). One a race goes on sale and sells out, we can’t get you into the race. So please help us help you. In the subject line enter the race name and redeem volunteer entry. We will verify your information before sending you the discount notification.
We do not send you a code. We set a free entry up with your email address (the email address listed in your Ultrasignup account) and you register when the race goes on sale. It will be discounted 100% upon checkout.
