* The Mohican MTB100 has made the switch to Bikereg.com because they offer racer's lower fee's than comparable online registration services.
* To avoid difficulties with illegible and incomplete registration forms, there will be no snail mail entry offered. Racers must register online or register the day before the event. Forest Waivers will be available at packet pickup and will need to be signed for valid entry to be accepted. A list of Mohican MTB100 and 100k registrants is available at bikereg.com
No refunds, however, racers may transfer their registration to another racer until May 27th 11:59 PM by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org There is a $13 fee for transfers.
Switching from 100 mile to 100k: Because racers often do not know how their bodies will perform until just before race day, switching to a shorter distance is allowed. There is no refund of the difference in entry fee. You must let us know at packet pickup. No race day changes allowed. Please do not email or call to switch distances.
