Entry fees are non-refundable, even in the case of a race postponement, cancellation 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. Anyone found participating with another person’s number will be disqualified and both people will be barred from future Sports Backers events, including the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k and VCU Health Richmond Marathon.
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 2019 to 2020 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).

You may defer your registration from the 2020 Richmond Marathon, Richmond Half Marathon, or Allianz Partners 8k to the 2021 or 2022 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. Due to COVID-19 we have waived the fee to defer your race entry. All deferrals must be done by October 31, 2020 and may be used only for the 2021 or 2022 event. You may only defer an entry once (i.e., if you deferred your 2019 entry to 2020, you will not be able to defer it again in 2020 to 2021).
Please note: Training team registrations have different deferral rules and deadlines. Check each Training Team page for details.
