Participants register for the track of their choice. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some strands/tracks fill up quickly, so it is important to register as early as possible. You may be wait-listed if your first choice is not available at registration. You will be given the opportunity to register for other available strands/tracks while you are wait-listed for your first choice.
