Q: How do I pronounce Aravaipa?
Q: How did you come up with the name Aravaipa and what does it mean?
A: We took a trip to the Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness in 2007 and loved the canyon and the name. The name is an old Apache word roughly meaning “laughing waters”. Here is a peek into what it has to offer: Aravaipa Canyon Video
Q: What is Aravaipa’s refund policy?
A: Unless otherwise stated, we will provide a 75% credit towards a future Aravaipa Running event if notified in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org 30 days out from the event. At the race director’s discretion, within 30 days up to 72 hours of the event, a 50% credit may be provided in case of injury (with doctor’s note) or family emergency (with appropriate documentation). Credits will be good for one year from date of issuance. No refunds, transfers, or rollovers will be issued under any circumstance. No credit will be issued within 72 hours of the event or after the event. Race shirts may only be picked up in person at packet pickup or on race day, we cannot mail out shirts to participants that do not attend the event.
For the DRT Series option to register for the entire series, there is no refund for missing one or more races in the series, whether notified before or after the event.
No selling of entries is permitted. No refunds or credits will be provided for dropping down in race distance.
For merchandise, tent rentals, or other add-ons (but not including the standard shirt or equivalent goodie), we will provide a 100% credit up until we order the items. After we place the order, we cannot provide any refunds or credits.
We understand that issues arise at the last minute that can prevent a runner from arriving at the start line. We incur most costs early on in the planning process, and this policy represents our ability to reasonably provide something to runners who cannot attend, while keeping our entry fees low and quality high. If you have any questions about our policy, please email email@example.com.
Q: What do I receive for volunteering?
A: Volunteering can be a reward in itself, providing a way to support runners as you are supported when you run. We recognize that our events would be nothing without the hard work and experience of good volunteers. Volunteers working a full shift will receive a volunteer shirt or iRun gift card, as well as a credit good towards the entry fee of any future Aravaipa event (good for one year).
