— Virtual runners may submit their results upon completion of their run or before September 20, 2020.

— All registrations are final. There are no refunds allowed for the virtual race.
— Virtual race participants will be required to pick up their race packets when permitted based on the Government of Guam mandates.
|Miscellaneous||If the event is cancelled due to any reason beyond the control of the organizer, the entry fee will NOT be refunded to the runner. Registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. All information published is subject to change or expiration without notice. All runners bear the sole responsibility of being informed of race rules and regulations.|
|Weather Conditions||Precautions should be taken against heat and humidity. Proper hydration and nutrition prior to the race are extremely important as the temperatures in Guam will likely be in the high 80s with humidity in the 80 to high 90 percent range. A long-distance event with these conditions can be dangerous for those who are insufficiently trained and prepared. If this is your first time participating in a running event of this length in a warm and humid climate, take fluids.|
