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:
Until September 7, 2024 (2 weeks prior to race day) - $15.00
September 8, 2024 - September 20, 2024 - $30.00
Registrants may defer their entry by going into their profile on runsignup.com and choosing "Manage Registration" next to the race.
PLEASE NOTE: If you select the bib mailing option during registration your deferral deadline is different than the dates listed above. The deferral deadline for those selecting the bib mailing option is SEPTEMBER 1ST.
We offer the option for registrants to transfer their entry to another eligible participant up to September 20, 2024. 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 runsignup.com 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 2024 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 email@example.com PRIOR to registering.
If you signed up for one distance would like to downgrade to a shorter distance or you signed up for the in-person race and would like to switch to the virtual race, you can make that change through your RunSignup account. Log on, click “Manage Registration” next to the race, click “Transfer Event,” and select the relay. Please note: you will not receive a credit or refund for any difference in price paid.
If you would like to switch upgrade to a longer distance, you can follow the same steps above. You will be charged any difference in registration fee from when you originally signed up to the current price.
