The fee that is requested online is not optional. We are collecting this fee to offset increased BLM fees. On race day you need to sign a written waiver regardless, to recogize the assumption of risk. If you choose to opt out of the fee online, please type in a 3-digit # in the license field. Please be aware that the BLM is now charging a higher user fee for the area, so we need to collect a "donation" at registration or online to offset these expenses. We dont wont to raise the entry fees, but we also cannot afford to lose money on these events. Thanks for understanding.
