REGISTRATION FEE REFUND OPTION: FUNDRAISING TO BEAT CANCER IN THE KEYS
Racing in the Florida Keys is a lot of fun, but the cause of beating cancer is as serious as it gets and is an important component of the KEYS100. In that spirit, any runner in the individual competitions, or team in the relay race, that delivers paid donations to the "Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys" in an amount at least equal to three (3) times their paid registration fee will have their fee refunded in full. For example: a team that registered before midnight, January 15, paid a team entry fee of $720. If that team delivers paid donations of at least $2,160 prior to race day (that's 3 times the paid $720 registration fee), the entire $720 race registration fee will be refunded. Similarly, an individual 100-miler who registered prior to midnight on January 15 paid an entry fee of $225. If that runner raises at least $675 in paid donations by race day, his/her paid fee of $225 will be refunded in full.

Notes:
KEYS100 is sanctioned by USA Track & Field.
Additional shirts: Included in the registration fee is a race shirt for each runner.  These will be distributed at pre-race check-in.  Registered runners who are interested in buying additional shirts will have the option to do so from the online race store after the race.  


Charitable giving and fundraising: The KEYS100 strongly encourages charitable giving.  As a convenience, runners may make a donation or create a fundraising campaign at time of registration should they choose to do so.
