*Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we have a uniform policy of no refunds, transfers or deferrals to a future year.  We know that plans change and unexpected things come up, but we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of an arbitrary line of who merits a refund and who doesn't.  Thank you for your understanding.

*Participants will have the option to protect themselves from non-refundable registration expenses by purchasing event insurance. This offer is valid ONLY at the time of your registration for the event.

*I understand that there is NO race day packet pickup for the half, full and marathon relay.
