Cancellation Policy

Entry fees are generally non-refundable. That means that once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate, UNLESS you have purchased our Registration Refund option at the time of online registration. You may NOT transfer your entry to another year. 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 while picking up their packet.

The 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 since funds will have been spent in preparation for Race Day. 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. Therefore, we may not have enough of every size available at the Expo, We advise you to arrive early in order to guarantee your size.
