Entry fees are non-refundable, even in the case of a race postponement, cancellation, updated race format, and/or if you are unable to participate; race numbers and entries cannot be transferred to another person. No exceptions. This means once we have received your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate, and you may not give or sell your number or timing tag to anyone else.
Switching Races (Distance)
There will be no refunds and no transfer of entries from person-to-person. You may switch between the three events (8k, half, and full) for a $10 fee plus the difference in entry fee at the time of the switch. If you are already signed up for one race and want to switch to the other, you may do so online through October 31, provided the race you are switching to has not reached its capacity.
The distance of the event you are switching to/from is a non-factor in determining what you will owe when you switch events. The determining factors are what you have already paid and the current price of the event you are switching to. If you have already paid more than the current price of the event you are switching to, you will only owe the $10 transfer fee. If you have paid less than the current entry fee of the event you are switching to, you will owe the difference in what you have paid and the current entry fee + the $10 transfer fee. You will not receive a refund of any entry fees.
PLEASE NOTE: If you deferred your race entry from 2022 to 2023 and would now like switch distances, you must email [email protected] or call 804-285-9495 x250 in order to process the switch.
1. Switching to an event that is less expensive than what you have already paid:
EXAMPLE: If you registered for the half marathon for $75 and then want to switch to the 8k when its entry fee is $30, you would only pay the $10 transfer fee.
2. Switching to an event that is more expensive than what you have already paid:
EXAMPLE: If you registered for the marathon for $85 and would like to switch to the half marathon in July when the half’s entry fee is $95, you will owe $20 ($10 difference in entry fee + $10 transfer fee).

Switching Races (In-person to Virtual or Virtual to In-person)
You may switch between the in-person and virtual event of the same distance (ie. virtual half for in-person half) for no fee. If you are already signed up for one race and want to switch to the alternate format, you may do so by emailing [email protected].
You may defer your registration from the 2023 Allianz Partners Richmond Marathon, CarMax Richmond Half Marathon, or VCU Health Richmond 8k to the 2024 event. You may only defer to and from the same event distance. Deferred registrations may not be transferred to another person. Refunds will not be issued under any circumstances. The fee to defer a registration is $10 for the 8k and $20 for the half or full marathons through September 15 and then $20 for the 8k and $30 for the half or full marathons. All deferrals must be done by October 31, 2023 and may be used only for the 2024 event. You may only defer an entry once (i.e., if you defer your 2023 entry to 2024, you will not be able to defer it again to 2025).
Please note: Training team registrations have different deferral rules and deadlines. Check each Training Team page for details.
