Early entrants who register by September 12, 2021 are eligible for refunds of entry fees or deferral to another upcoming race – athlete’s choice. To receive a refund, deferral, or credit, you must register by September 12, 2021 for the Florida Holiday Halfathon & 10K and notify the race director by email (not Facebook) at least 3 weeks before the race or by November 14, 2021. This date is when we order your personalized bib and start preparing your packet.
There are no refunds due to cancellations due to an Act of God, such as weather, fire, or natural disaster. No deferral or transfer is available if you do not show up for the race. All refunds will be issued after the last race of the series (Shamrock Halfathon & 5K), on or about April 1, 2022.
If our race permit is withdrawn due to COVID-19 and this race is cancelled, you may defer your entry to any of our future races (we have 5 races per season), including this year or any following year. There is no expiration date, no transfer fee, nor processing fee.
If you have already signed up for all our races this season, you may transfer to the following year. Should our entry fees increase, you will be locked in at the price you already paid. See our race schedule at: http://floridaroadraces.com.
THERE ARE NO TRANSFERS OF BIBS TO OTHER ATHLETES. Non-registered runners will NOT be covered by USATF insurance and will be disqualified if caught.
