Already registered? You can confirm your entry here.
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.
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 distance switch fee if going down in distance. If going up in distance, it’s $10 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 or in person at the Race Expo, provided the race you are switching to has not reached its capacity. You will not receive a refund of any entry fees.
PLEASE NOTE: If you deferred your race entry from 2023 to 2024 and would now like switch distances, you must email [email protected] in order to process the switch.
EXAMPLE: If you registered for the half marathon and now want to do the 8k, you would pay the $10 distance switch fee.
EXAMPLE: If you registered for the half marathon for $90 and would like to switch to the marathon in July when the marathon’s entry fee is $110, you will owe $30 ($20 difference in entry fee + $10 distance switch fee).
