Transfers to new participants

You can transfer your registration to a new participant until August 27, 2018 at 11:59pm. Sharing bib numbers or registrations with new individuals without completing an official transfer is considered a felony due to the international component of our race.

Let’s say Tom registered for the Full Marathon during Early Bird Registration. He now wants to transfer his registration to Jerry. Tom visits this link (or and follows the instructions to transfer his registration. Tom will use Jerry’s email to transfer the registration. Jerry will receive an email with instructions on how to register for the event, and upon completion of registration will pay the $30 transfer fee. For example, Tom paid $90 during Early Bird Registration. Jerry, when taking over the registration, will be charged the $30 the transfer fee. Any refund to Tom will be done offline, in between individuals.

Participants who are currently registered for any event can transfer to a new event for a $30 transfer fee.
