To answer a few F.A.Q.'s we have
recieved regarding the registration fees ...
What am I getting for my money?
You are paying for an Adventure; this is not just an
ordinary race and it is a bargain. One of our race originators
Paul Bailey did the Boston Marathon and the same package of goodies
there was $350 Canadian, only ours is better! The Florida Ironman
is a whopping $750 per person - and the Death Race is so much cooler
than that! Besides receiving the regular race goodies (Two hot
meals, a wild t-shirt, tattoo, a goodie bag, the best selection
of food on any race course, a raft ride across a major river for
one leg of the ride and many other unbelievable things) we have even
more to offer. If successful in completing the course in
under 24 hours, team members will receive an all new award
this year, their own custom made and personalized coin award outlining
their accomplishment. If completed by
a soloist, he/she will also receive a distinguished personalized
custom made coin award listing their name, event, and
finishing time to commemorate their incredible achievement. These
custom awards are spectacular and you cannot buy them in stores or
anywhere; you have to earn them
and then they are yours to display proudly for all to see
In addition, you will also receive all the support one could ask for in
remote area from Search and Rescue and EMT personnel for
unfortunate mishaps. You are paying for Live Entertainment in the form
of bands and midway events for the kids. You are paying for being
part of Canada's Hardest and best-organized Racing Event. In our
first year (2000) our Run received a Provincial Award for being
Canada's best new sporting event and have since been nominated for
a National Award for Tourism Excellence. And there is a reason
for this, come see for yourself!
You will find many other adventures taking place here in Grande Cache
on the weekend and we invite you to experience the 'natural high'
awaiting you here. Wait a minute that's not all; throughout the
event, you will be running in some of the world's most beautiful
country, a fact that we consider priceless.
It’s going to be an adventure of a lifetime. Don't

Will there be a
cost increase this year and what do my race fees pay for?
Thanks for your questions. We are very pleased to announce
that we do not anticipate any cost increase for this year's event even
though we are planning the introduction of an awesome state-of-the-art
timing system which will simplify and vastly improve our event's
timing, safety, tracking and reporting capabilities.
To briefly summarize, this is where your entry fee
dollars are going:
|Cost per Racer
|Custom Designed Awards
||$50.00 (+ or -)
|Promotion (advertising, entry forms, ad
signage, brochures, posters, travel, etc.)
|Custom Designed T-shirt
|Info, tattoos/racer kits
|State of the Art Timing System
|$10.00 (all proceeds to charity)
|$20.00 (all proceeds to charity)
|Equipment, maintenance, computers, Race
|Capital Items (computer software,
communications net, Quad, pylons, generators, lighting etc. )
|Trail and transportation**
* We provide all the power bars, Gatorade, Aurora Spring Water, fresh
fruit, hot noodles, chocolate bars, chips and other items and munchies
you could need or desire at our aid stations.
**This includes creating and marking the trails and providing quad
transportation and 4x4 transportation throughout the event and
throughout the year as required.
As you can see, putting on an event of this magnitude requires much
organization and financial subsidization in addition to racers entry
fees. We are totally grateful for our loyal and generous sponsors
who make the continuation of this event possible.
Any sponsorship funds received go directly to decreasing the costs for
the racers. (One of our highest being insurance since 9/11.) These much
appreciated funds are also utilized for providing many incidental
expenses, such as the necessary transportation for Search and Rescue
and EMS requirements (as per Athletics Alberta - our event is
sanctioned each year by Athletics Alberta) and to helping with the cost
of our volunteer t-shirts and a well-deserved meal for them as
well. (With 400+ volunteer positions, this is not an
insubstantial undertaking.) In return, we offer tremendous
advertising exposure for our sponsors and we encourage all Death Racers
to support our awesome sponsors when in town. Our list of
expenses and our "to-do" lists seem endless, but we, as organizers are
totally committed and devoted to creating and maintaining an awesome
event that you will remember for the rest of your life. As we
say, "It's a killer!" but it is also a truly epic adventure that we are
pleased to promote and provide.
Our entire community has embraced the spirit of our annual event and
joins us in celebrating the many successes and the impact the Canadian
Death Race has provided. Virtually our whole community draws together
and comes alive during Race Weekend to make this event the success it
has become. We strive to continue to bring and keep this special
town and event alive and running!
I trust this will clarify some of the financial issues concerning
our Death Race. If you have any further questions, or if there is
anything else I can clarify for you, or help you with, please feel free
to contact me any time. I truly love this event and am devoted to
ensuring it's continued success.

Where does all the money go? & Are you
Looking from the outside in appearances can be deceiving.
The Canadian Institute of extreme Racing is an incorporated non-profit
society of Alberta.
Running a world-class event is very (very, very, very) expensive.
We put all the incomes generated back into the expenses of the race.
We do apply for grant money when we
are eligible; this grant money is a very small portion of the
total money that is needed to run the race. Without the money (from
sponsors and grants) the race would be in trouble financially.
Call me if you have further questions, as, if you honestly believe we
are out to make money, it appears you are under the wrong impression
about the event and its intentions.
