We wanted to give everyone a heads up that we are raising our registration pricing for the Grand Circle Trails ultramarathon series this year. It has been years since we have raised the price on registration, but as we've grown and worked to improve the runner experience, the cost to put the events on has increased.
On top of maintaining the quality of the events, we're also looking to improve. As you may know, we're working to upgrade timing at all the races and adding GPS tracking for our 100 milers. These improvements will not only make the weekend more enjoyable, but will also make the races safer for our runners without taking away the challenges of our ultramarathons.
We also want you to know that we've gotten rid of the hidden registration fees that would get tacked on to your registration in Ultrasignup. Ever since we've moved registration to RunSignUp, we've been eating those registration fees. Part of the increase is accounting for those fees, without it being a surprise at the end of the registration form.
We're so excited about the future of this series. We appreciate our runners and want to give them the best race experience possible!
