Transfers to new participants

You can transfer your registration to a new participant until August 28, 2017 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 http://www.imathlete.com/events/2017detroitmarathon/editreg) 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 and any difference in price. For example, Jerry paid $75 during Early Bird Registration and the current rate is $120.00. Jerry will be charged the $75 difference, in addition to the transfer fee. Any refund to Tom will be done offline, in between individuals.

Transfers to a different event

Participants who are currently registered for any event can transfer to a new event for a $30 transfer fee. Transfers can be made into any international event (Full Marathon, International Half-Marathon) until August 28, 2017 at 11:59pm. Transfers can be made into any domestic event (U.S.-Only Half-Marathon, 5K) until October 9, 2017 at 11:59pm.

Participants can visit this link (or http://www.imathlete.com/events/2017detroitmarathon/editreg) and follow the instructions to transfer their own registration to a new event. Any difference in price will be charged in addition to the transfer fee.
