Before the Big Day

Deferments are available online until registration closes. To defer your entry, log in to your Race Roster account to request and pay the deferral fee.

Sorry we are not able to offer refunds as our profits are donated to local charities, but you may defer or transfer your entry which can be done through your Race Roster account.

Transfers are available until the online registration closes. Log in to your Race Roster account to find instructions. You will be charged a transfer fee and any difference in the entry fee.

If transferring to another runner, please note any new participants will need to sign the waiver on their Race Roster account in order to complete.
