Registration and Payment

Participants in Kathmandu Valley have to visit one of the race registration spots and pay in full.

Last day to register and pay is , after which flat late fees of Rs. 2,000 (regardless of age, gender and distance) will be applicable, to be paid on race day.

If you feel you can’t make time to register by deadline, we suggest you look into getting a Season Pass.

If you miss the deadline, the late entry fee will be Rs. 2,000 to be paid on race day. We cannot make exceptions. We’ve been lenient so far, but the number of late entries is just increasing by the month, and has caused the point system to break.

We strongly suggest you look into Season Pass A or (recommended) B, to sort this out. Pay for remaining races, and never worry about missing the deadline.

Please call us at 9801151533/9808594623 (or email us at run@ktmtrailraceseries.com) if you wish to defer your participation in the race you have signed up for.

The payment is non-transferable and non-refundable. However, you may defer your participation for the immediate next edition of the series for 25% additional charge. The payment will be non-refundable if you cannot make it to the next race and it is non-transferable to further races.

Though you can sign up as a team, timing will be taken individually for ranking and prizes. Individual members may go to one of the registration spots to register, or you may contact us to register as a group. Our team member will come to you with the registration form and for liability form/payment. Members will have to sign individual waiver forms.

You can call us at 9801151533/9808594623 (or email us at run@ktmtrailraceseries.com) with this issue. For genuine cases (participants outside the valley), we can make an alternative provision for registration. This will be done on a case-by-case basis.
