Event transfers, switches, edits

How do I transfer my registration to another person if I cannot run?

Online transfer is no longer available. If you wish to transfer your registration to another person, you may complete the transfer at the Health and Fitness Expo on Friday or Saturday, May 17 or 18.

Original Participant:  You must sign the Transfer Form and have the transferee bring the completed and signed form to the Expo.

Transferee (New Participant):  Bring the following items with you to the Expo:

  • Transfer Form - completed and signed
  • Copy of original participants ID (photo on cell phone is fine)
  • $20 Transfer fee (cash, check or credit card accepted)

Upon arrival at the expo, you will need to pick up the orginal participant's bib as well as their T-shirt and go to the Registration Desk to complete the process. The new participant will pay the $20 transfer fee turn in original bib. New participant will then complete the full registration process and receive a new bib number.  

Please Note: 

  • There are no refunds to the original participant.
  • You must transfer into the same event as the original participant. If not, you will need to also have an Event Switch processed at the Expo.
  • You cannot transfer to an event that is sold out. There is no guarantee the distance you want will still be open for registrations at the Expo.
  • You will need to take the t-shirt size ordered by the original participant, but you may trade it at the t-shirt swap table if your size is available.

How can I change events (upgrade or downgrade)?

You may change events at the Health and Fitness Expo on May 17 and 18, unless an event is SOLD OUT. There is a fee of $20 to change events, plus the difference in event fees if you are switching to a more expensive event. If you are switching to a less expensive event, there is no refund. PLEASE NOTE: Switching event fees are cash, check or credit card.

Please pick up your original bib and t-shirt and take it to the Solutions Desk to submit your change.
