In 2015, we return to our traditional fee structure:
Fees are comprised of three elements:  Processing Fee, Registration Fee and Contribution.  Everyone pays a processing fee and contribution.  If you elect to collect contributions of $200 (or more),  your registration fee is FREE, paid by the primary beneficiary.  Check out the chart below.

2015 El Tour de Tucson PRocessing Fees
You can pay JUST THE PROCESSING FEE NOW to reserve your spot.  You have until you pick up your packet (info here) to pay the balance.  The online program requires you to pay Level 1 (see below) in full when you register.  If you’d like to register now and pay just the processing fee now, please select level 2.  We hope you will collect the $200 in contributions, but at packet pickup you can pay the balance at level 1.  Quirk of the system… sorry for the confusion.


Looking for the FUN RIDE?  Fees:  $15 per individual or for a group of four or more $10 per person. Fun Ride details HERE.
