What happens if I register and then am unable to participate?

Home/What happens if I register and then am unable to participate?

If you are a registered marathon or half marathon participant and are unable to participate in 2019 for any reason, you may defer your race registration.  You may do so on your participant account during the deferral period. Submission of deferral in the participant account forfeits your 2019 race registration and guarantees an entry into the 2019 race of your choice.

You will not receive a refund for 2019 and will be required to pay for your race entry in 2019.

You will NOT be automatically entered into the 2020 race; you must complete the online registration form during the January or May registration periods.
