PLEASE NOTE... NO REFUNDS. However, we will work with you to transfer your entry, should you register and then find you cannot attend Dirty Kanza. Contact us prior to the registration deadline of May 3, 2014, concerning entry transfers.
ALSO NOTE: You MUST have a support crew present to come rescue you, should you need to abandon the event. We are not responsible for getting you back to town. We will not come rescue you. If you do not have your own support crew… or if your support crew has to bail for some unexpected reason… you do have another option. It’s called the Dirty Kanza Support Crew For-Hire Program. Check out the details above.
