Description

New Deferral Policy for 2018: There are NO refunds or transfers. However, we understand that things happen and we want you to have the opportunity to enjoy our events. For those who have registered but cannot participate this year, we will grant you the ability to defer your Marathon or Half Marathon registration to 2019. Deferral requests must be submitted by September 1st, 2018. If you miss this deadline, consider your registration a donation to the Bozeman Hawks XC team. There will be no deferrals or refunds for the Bozeman 5k.

The cost to defer your registration to 2019 is $20.

Participants are allowed to make a single year deferral per entry. Deferring for multiple years is not permitted.

Fire/Smoke Policy: The Bozeman Marathon and Half Marathon will follow the Montana Department of Environmental Quality measurements to make decisions regarding race day. While Montana does have a fire season, Bozeman is usually rather fortunate in that air quality is usually not comprised, thanks to our higher elevation and proximity to active fires (fires are generally in the far west of the state). However, if air quality reaches the unhealthy level, race officials reserve the right to cancel the event. Previous years we have mostly been in the moderate range.
