You will not have to pay the race entry fee twice. The A-T CureTeam registration fee is just $10 and you will have all the same benefits and requirements as our A-T CureTeam runners.
Q: Do I have to pay the fundraising requirement up front?
A: NO. The minimums can be raised by any combination of donations from friends, family, and/or fundraising events by your race's fundraising deadline.

A: The fundraising requirement for those registered before 11/28 is in addition to the registration fee. You will have until December 27, 2023 to fundraise the required amount.
