You may have someone else pick up your kit for you. If you do this please ask the person picking up for you to make the volunteers aware.
12. How and when can I register?
Registration is available online through Race Roster until 1PM Saturday, October 21st (unless sold out).
13. I am injured… can I get a refund after I have paid?
No, but you can either transfer your registration to another runner or we can defer your registration until next year. To transfer, simply go to the registration site that you used to register and select Transfer. Running Room confirmation emails also have a transfer option. To defer, go to the Race Roster registration site and register in the event "Deferral to 2024". Deferrals are good for the following year only and cannot be transferred to another runner. There is an administration fee for both options.
14. Can I transfer my registration to another runner?
Yes. This can be done on both registration sites for a nominal administrative fee. To transfer, simply go to the registration site select “transfer”.
