2015 Inferno Race Registration Changes

2015 Tuckerman Inferno Race Registration Changes

This year the Tuckerman Inferno event is changing the race registration process to incorporate two classes of competitors, Elite and Sport divisions. 

The Elite classification is for athletes competing individually for the Tuckerman and Tuckerwoman titles. All other competitors will be grouped in the Sport category. The Sport group is for teams and teams can be comprised of either 2,3,4 or 5 members per team. Each Sport team should select their own unique name and there is no longer a requirement to have at least one female athlete per team. All-female, all-male, and mixed male/female teams are all encouraged to register and to form a team. We are also still encouraging the formation of all-female teams and adaptive teams (which must have at least one adaptive athlete on board the team). We will be maintaining prize categories for all-female and adaptive teams along with our usual top finisher prizes for each leg of the pentathlon race.

Registration Fees

There will be a slight increase in cost for registering for the Elite division, but we are creating a cash prize incentive to attract more Elite racers. The prize money will be "winner take all" as follows"

  • $1000 cash prize for the 1st place man - Tuckerman title
  • $1000 cash prize for the 1st place woman - Tuckerwoman title

Race registration costs for each group are as follows:

  • The Elite group is a $200 entry fee which may be paid during online registration process or via online fundraising
  • Sport group team is required to raise a minimum of $500 via our online fundraising tool. All racers on a given Sport team are expected to participate in the fundraising process. 

We will be using the online, web-based FirstGiving fundraising platform to encourage team based fundraising. All proceeds raised that exceed the team registration minimum threshold will be considered tax-deductible contributions to the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine annual operating fund as is the base cost of the team registration fee.

More details on how to sign up and create Elite and Sport group fundraising pages will be posted soon.
