Entry fees are non-refundable. That means that once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate.
You may, however, transfer your entry to another year. Information about transfers can be found here.
Since the events are international, it is a federal offense to cross borders illegally. Therefore, do not give your number to another person. It is each participant’s responsibility to provide proper documentation for picking up their packet.
The Detroit Free Press Marathon, in accordance with management executives, city officials and local law enforcement, has the authority to cancel any of the events for emergency purposes, such as, but not limited to, inclement weather or threat of terrorism. If such emergency conditions force cancellation, refunds cannot be provided because funds will have been spent in preparation for the race.
T-shirts will be distributed. When you place your order for a t-shirt, we will make every effort to provide you the size requested. However, shirts are ordered months in advance of the event, based on estimates.
If you cannot participate in the event you signed up for, more information about transfers and deferrals can be found here.
