Payment: You can either send a check/Money Order (U.S. Dollars) made out to Steve Kirby or use PayPal to pay for your entry fee and any other fees associated with the race (Shelter Rental, Support Crew help, food for your support, etc). If you use PayPal, use my email address steve@USAUltraTri.com to send the monies and send me an email telling me you just did it so I can be on the lookout for it. When you have your PayPal page up, click on the "Send Money" tab, put in my email address, the amount and then click on the second Radio Button "I'm sending money to family or friends”. Don’t use “I'm paying for goods or services” as I will be charged a fee. For athletes sending in other forms of payment besides U.S. Funds or PayPal, please check with me first before you do so as there are bank fees associated with other forms of payment. Good luck and let me know if you have a problem.
