Refund, Deferral & Transfer Policies

There are absolutely NO refunds, even in the event of a race cancellation. If the race is canceled, you will receive a free deferral to the next rescheduled date. You may Defer or Transfer your Bib to another person if those races are not at or above 80% capacity. Event Transfers may also be restricted due to participant caps. There are absolutely NO illegal transfers of entries to other individuals. No exceptions. All Deferrals, Event transfers and Bib Transfers must be done online through your RunSignUp Account (Cut-off dates and fees apply). Once we receive and accept your entry, you will NOT receive a refund if you cannot participate. Packet Pick Up will be held Friday and Saturday for Live races at the Sports & Fitness Expo. There is NO SUNDAY PACKET PICK UP. Please select "Sunday Emergency Packet Pick Up" during this registration if you are unable to make it to Packet Pick Up.

​There are NO illegal transfers of bibs to other runners, NO exceptions.  All Transfers of bibs to another runner must be done online through the "Bib Transfer to Another Runner" on the CoDelRun.com website.

You must run the race you registered for or Switch Races (Transfer Event).  Switching Races (Transfer Event) must be done online through the "Switching Races" on the CoDelRun.com website. Fees apply. Event Transfers may be restricted. 

You may switch from your current Coastal Delaware Running Festival race to one of our other Coastal Delaware Running Festival races, however you will not receive a refund of registration fee.  If you are switching from one CoDel race to a more expensive CoDel race, you must pay the difference in race fee from what you initially paid for your original category to your new race category’s fee at the time of the switch. There will be a $5.00 fee to switch your race entry up until 4/1/2023.  After 4/1/2023 the fee increases to $25.  If you are switching from one CoDel race to a more expensive CoDel race, you will pay the difference in entry fees PLUS the transfer fee.  

The last day to Switch Races online is 4/10/2022. Any switching of races after this will need to be done at Packet Pick Up and will require the same fee schedule as described above including the transfer fee.

Minimum Two-Year Event Ban for Unauthorized Runners

Our past races have been marred by numerous participants running under the guise of someone else’s race number.  While this may seem harmless to the parties perpetrating the unauthorized bib transfer, it does convey serious consequences to the organizers and participant field alike.

From race results to finishers’ awards being impacted as well as medical staff being able to correctly identify participants in need of treatment, it is imperative that the registration data associated with your race number does in fact belong to you, the participant.

Thus, if race organizers become aware that a runner has participated in one of our events wtih a bib that is not registered to that runner, both the runner and the person to whom the bib is registered will be prohibited from participating in subsequent Focus Multisports events for a minimum of two years.
