Valley to Mountain Upgrade Select this item if you are a participant who has already registered for one of the valley-based routes (36 or 62-mile) and has requested to move into one of the mountain routes (77, 103, or 108-mile routes). This is not a change fee, but the difference in cost associated with the entry fee for these routes. (Because you might be wondering: the valley-based routes' entries are subsidized by a targeted sponsorship, and that is reflected in the reduced entry fee for those routes.) Once your order is confirmed, you will be transferred into the new route of your choice.
