Race Roster collects a fee on all transactions (processing fees) as this is an industry standard. Their team assists our races from beginning to end, and this fee allows them to provide meaningful customer support to all participants, covers merchant costs of processing the transaction, the technology costs of developing an online registration platform, includes event cancellation protection for participants in the case of an emergency, and ensures that the online race experience is seamless for all.
We understand that some people aren’t familiar with where these fees are spent, and may think they are an irrelevant added cost, though without them, we would not be able to host the events that we do.
The early bird rate for the In-Person 8K & 5K is $50. The cost for those events goes up on January 24th. The In-Person Kids Race is $30 and will not increase after the registration launch.
We will be allowing runners to transfer their bib at the Help Desk at Race Kit Pickup on March 30th-31st ONLY (See the Race Kit Pickup schedule here!)
How to transfer:
1. The original participant sends the new participant their bib number and written permission to pick up the bib and transfer the registration
2. The new participant will go to Race Kit Pickup and pick up the race kit, including participant shirt
3. The new participant will take this race kit to the Help Desk at Race Kit Pickup to transfer the registration. Please Note it is a $10 CASH ONLY fee for all participant transfers.
Participants purchasing a transfer bib will receive the original registrant’s shirt size and style.
There will be an opportunity to exchange the un-worn shirt after the race period. Sizing and exchanges are not guaranteed, but you can let the new registrant know that they can email email@example.com after the in-person event is over on April 1st to see if we have their desired inventory
Yes, we will be allowing distance transfers into the in-person event until March 25th at 11:59 P.M. Transfers into the virtual event will be accepted until March 31st.
To transfer your distance, visit the event page and click the ‘Transfer’ button on the left hand menu.
There is a $10 administrative fee to transfer between events, plus any additional registration fee difference between events.
In the case of an in-person race cancellation, participants will have the option to transfer into the virtual event or receive a refund.
