Reminder to 2008 Western States Entrants

For those of you who entered the 2008 Western States Endurance Run and wanted to have your entry applied to 2009, don't forget about the upcoming e-mail on September 15th. Here is a snippet from the official entry page:

2008 Automatic Entrant protocol:

  1. All entrants on the Official 2008 Entrant List will be given automatic entry into the 2009 Run. (Each such entrant must complete the 2009 application, pay the entry fee and complete eight hours of volunteer service.)
  2. On September 15, 2008, each Official 2008 Entrant will be contacted by E-mail and provided with a link to a confirmation page on the WS100.com website. The page will ask you to enter your email address and confirm that you would like to run in 2009 or to decline participation.
  3. If you are on the 2008 Entrant List but your E-mail address has changed, please contact the Race Director immediately at RDws100.com. For security reasons, your confirmation must match the E-mail address on file or it will not be processed.
  4. On the confirmation page, if you select "Yes, I wish to enter the 2009 Event" and provide your correct Email Address, you will receive a page containing a private link to the 2009 entry form at Active.com. You should then complete the online entry form immediately.
  5. If you select "No, I do NOT wish to enter" and provide your correct Email Address, you will be removed from the eligibility list. Your response will be irrevocable.
  6. You will have until midnight, September 30, 2008, to make your confirmation and complete the application form. If you do not respond by the deadline, you will be deemed to have chosen "NO, I do not wish to enter" and will be dropped from the eligibility list.
Got it? Good! Would hate to see you lose a slot over an e-mail error.
