2020 Confirmation Lists
« on: January 06, 2020, 06:09:32 PM »
I have registered for my first PPA and very excited for this extreme challenge! I am just curious from previous years when to expect to begin to see confirmation lists, as well as wave populations. I race many, many races every year so I realize this is very time consuming and many times the entire process can run almost until the week of the event. I assume at least confirmations start earlier since air and hotel accommodations are needed for many participants. Thanks for your help and I look forward to building a new network of running and power hiking enthusiasts!

Preliminary registration lists will be posted to the site soon now that I've caught up with the initial flood of emails.

Actual confirmation lists and validations will take a bit longer this year. Part of it is that folks can update their information, the other part is that I'm reworking the entire qualification check system from previous years since it started to fall apart once we offered things other than just the old half and full marathon entry.

In general, if you didn't lie about your qualifier (I've had a few) and it meets the requirements on the website, then you are in and should book your flights and hotels.

Wave assignments don't happen until a week or so after the Barr Trail Mountain Race. We take that race result into account for the everybody so I need those results before I can publish the assignments.
