Refund Policy: Due to the number of race transfer requests and cancellations that occur in the weeks prior to a race we have the following policy that is in accordance with USATF Policy.  Refunds will NOT be issued after a registration has taken place. Considerable effort goes into producing an event and funds are expended and applied in good faith based upon a registration.  If you would like to change your registration from one distance to another, you will be charged for the difference in price at the time of the change.
