Race registration fees (and the processing charge from RunSignup) are not refundable. These funds are used to pay for race premiums, permits, supplies, staffing, and other costs incurred before, during, and after the event is held. To be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy.


We offer the option for registrants to defer their entry to the following year's event based on Charm City Run's General Deferral fee schedule:

  • July 21 - August 3, 2023 (within 2 weeks of race day) - $30.00 - price will stay at $15 due to lower registration price.

We offer the option for registrants to transfer their entry to another eligible participant up to August 3, 2023 . After this deadline passes we are unable to allow transfers as race materials have been prepped for the event. Again, to be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy. Registrants may transfer their entry to another registrant by going into their profile on and choosing "Manage Registration" next to the race.


2020 showed just how unpredictable our world can be, and the running industry was certainly no exception. We know that it's important to have as much information at your disposal when making a decision whether to sign up for a race or not, and we want you to know exactly what your options will be should the 2023 in-person race not be able to take place as originally planned. Our regular cancellation policy found here covers scenarios that could prompt the cancellation of an event including weather, local emergencies, public health emergencies, etc. If you have any questions about our cancellation policy please email us at PRIOR to registering.
