I am unable to attend or can no longer participate, can I receive a refund or defer my registration?
We do not offer refunds or deferments. But you can transfer your registration to another runner.

How do I transfer my registration to another runner?
You can transfer your registration to another runner in RunSignUp until online registration closes on Sunday, October 28 at 11:59 PM. The original runner will log in to RunSignUp, navigate to Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Transfer to Another Runner. On the Transfer to Another Runner page, you will be shown your Transfer Information. Please confirm the information is correct and accurate. After reviewing the information, you can enter the Recipient Information. The recipient will receive an email notification with a unique link which they can use to claim this transfer.

There is a $10 fee to complete a transfer. You can transfer as a gift (the new runner pays the $10 fee and nothing else, and you receive no refund) or transfer for a partial refund (the new runner pays the current full price, and you get a refund of your original registration fee minus the $10 fee). 

All transfers that need to be made after October 28 can be completed in person at packet pick up.
