Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can’t run the race? Can I get a refund or transfer my entry to someone else?
Entry fees are non-refundable. This means once we have received your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate.
We allow you to transfer your entry to another person for a fee of $10. This is only allowed up until seven days before the event. We also allow you to transfer your entry to another event produced by Colorado Runner Events for a fee of $10. This is allowed up until 14 days before the event.
To transfer your entry, please see each race website.
Can I switch from the live race to the virtual option?
We also allow you to transfer your entry from the in-person event to the virtual race for a free until seven days before the event. After that, the fee is $5.
If you would like to switch from the live race to the virtual option, please fill out the transfer form on each race website.
Can I switch distances?
Yes, if you register for the race and then would like to switch to a shorter distance, please let us know a day before the race (so we can update the database with the correct bib numbers). There are no refunds if you switch to a shorter distance.
If you would like to go up in distance, you will need to pay the difference in price from your entry to the distance you would like to run before we will switch you. If you do this after the price break, you will also need to pay the increase in price break (IE – you paid $50 for the early registration 25K but would like to switch to the 50K two weeks before the race, you will owe the difference between $50 and $85, which is $35).
Please fill out the contact form if you wish to switch you distance at any event (be sure to include which event you are running in comments box).
