Once under the “Transfer to Another Runner” tab, you will be able to make sure that you have selected the correct registrant and event for this transfer. Using the fields for first name, last name and email address, indicate the user that you will be transferring your registration to. If available, select whether this transfer will be a Gift or if it will be a Transfer For a Refund
Note: The recipient will be guaranteed a spot in the race, regardless of whether or not the event has filled up already. However, they will be required to register prior to when the event registration closes.
If you registered offline, and paid your registration fee in person, then the race director may import your registration into their online race records. While any runner who is imported into the race will still have the option to “Transfer to Another Runner” online, they will only be allowed to choose “Registration Gift”.
Note: Since the original registration fee of an imported registrant would not be calculated into the transaction, the “Registration Transfer” would be equivalent to registering.
After doing a “Registration Transfer”, you can view your “Pending Transfer” under the “Registration” tab. From here you will have the option to “Resend” the transfer notification email to your desired recipient. You can also “Cancel” the transfer if it has not yet been accepted.
There are two different types of transfers. Transfers can be done as a “Registration Gift” or a “Registration Transfer”.
If you would like to transfer your registration and receive a partial refund, then click on the button labeled “Transfer for Refund”.
A breakdown of the transfer transaction will be available for reviewing, and if everything is correct, then hit “Transfer Registration”. You will be brought to your transaction’s confirmation page, where it can be printed out for your own records.
IMPORTANT: If the registrant does not accept the transfer, then you will not receive a refund. You will, however, still be eligible to use your registration on race day.
When transferring a registration as a gift, you will not receive a refund of your original registration fee, though instead, your recipient is allowed to register free of charge.
Note: There is no charge for variations in event cost, even if the original entrant registered during a lower priced registration period. Also, in some cases the giver of the gift registration may need to pay a processing fee for gifted transfers if the race director has applied a fee.
If you click on “Transfer as Gift”, then a breakdown of the transfer transaction will be made available to you. If the race charges a fee for gift transfers, then enter in your credit card information in the fields provided.
Finally, hit “Transfer Registration”, and you will be brought to your transaction’s confirmation page, where it can be printed out for your own records.
IMPORTANT: If the recipient of a “Registration Gift” does not register for the race, then you are still eligible to use your registration on race day.
After doing a “Registration Gift”, you can view your “Pending Transfer” under the “Registration” tab. From here you will have the option to “Resend” the transfer notification email to your desired recipient. You can also “Cancel” the transfer if it has not yet been accepted.
