1st Half Marathon:
In order to qualify as an Official Finisher, you must finish within the 3 hour course limit.
We adhere to the standard road racing industry policy. All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. This is noted on our registration application, and when you register for any of our events you must agree to this policy. You may not give or sell your number to another individual – if you do this could result in your disqualification as well as the runner who uses your race number.
The entry fee for this year’s event will not transfer to next year’s event, no exceptions. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected business or family emergency, pregnancy, etc. There are no exceptions. Any inquiry regarding this policy will be directed back to this page.
In the event you cannot run the 2016 race at all, please enclose a written request with your cancellation and include your name, gender, address, and phone number. By canceling your registration you won’t receive a refund, but we will send you the race shirt after the race. Medals are not sent to those who do not actually complete the course. We do not accept emailed cancellations. We must receive your written cancellation by July 1st. If your written cancellation is received after that date, we will not be able to process it.
