New and Improved for 2020:
We are making a number of changes to make the Monster Series more fun, more organized, and more open to families and competitive athletes alike. This year's changes include:
- Adding age group awards 2-3 deep for Kids (0-9, 10-14 instead of 0-19 as years past) and going to 5 year age groups from 10 all the way up to 70+.
- We will keep utilizing EnMotive's packet pickup solution for Dynamic Bibs as at Monster and Polar Dash to speed up your packet pickup experience.
- Changing the Start Line to the Middle of the Concourse of CHS Field, providing a straighter line to start the race. In future years weather permitting we will keep holding the start and/or finish line on the field.
- Lowering the Bib replacement fee to $5 from $20 - we understand things happen!
- And more to come.....

During Monster Series events there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions (for example lightning, tornado, high winds, extreme hot or cold temperatures, blizzard, etc...). Monster Series will do as much as we can to make the experience as safe as possible. But if there is severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a reasonable delay, or if conditions persist, race officials reserve the right to shorten or cancel the race. Entry fees are non-refundable. Please check the website and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations. If you are already at the event, listen to the announcer about any weather changes that may occur.
