Ready to sign up? The deadline to apply is April 15. That’s right, you have to apply. We don’t let every wingnut with water wings into this thing, and the $50 application fee only buys you into the vetting process.
Hey, even astronauts have to tryout.
If you are approved you’ll be invited to fill out a lot more information, but consider it one of the many hurdles in this race. After your team is approved for the race you need to register. Registration is when you must pay your entry fee. Only after you register will you get a bio on the website.
For all you racers who get a thrill out of waiting until the last minute to register: the Slacker Tax is here. Avoid the Slacker Tax. After you're accepted, register. Save yourself the money and us the headache. You may as well apply right now and give us the time to tell your story properly. You think the racer’s bios come from magnetic poetry and a six-pack of beer? And that we're just sitting around in June creating metaphors?
