Waitlist Information

Once we have met our participant cap for each of the live events, we have set up a waitlist for participants who would like to register but were closed out. 

Once each of the three live events is sold out, you can still register to be placed on a waiting list. You will not be charged for the event unless a spot opens up and you accept it. If a spot opens up and you are next in line, you will be sent an e-mail with directions on how to complete your registration. You have 48 hours to accept this registration. After that time, you forfeit your spot on the waitlist and an e-mail will be sent to the next in line. 

If you are registered for one of the live events and you are no longer able to attend, you MAY be entitled to a refund (less the original processing fees) IF someone on the waiting list claims your spot. Giving up your spot is not only beneficial to you (normally there would not be a refund if you cannot attend) but it is ALSO beneficial to your fellow running community in that someone who is able to run that morning will not miss out. The deadline for giving up your bib is 11:59 PM Eastern on Thursday, June 10, 2021. After that time if you cannot attend, it is recommended that you transfer to the virtual event, but refunds will no longer be issued under any circumstances.

Here is a link to giving up your bib.

These two screens will show you where to click and what you will see in order to give up your spot for someone on the waitlist:

Click "Refund Policy" and then "Request Refund."  On the next screen, click "Give Up My Bib." If you're logged into RunSignup, it should automatically pull up your current registration to give up. Follow the instructions thereafter.
