Refunds, Deadlines & Transfers
If you’re unable to run in the race you have already registered for, you have three options:
- Transfer your registration to another runner
- Defer your registration to another Vacation Races event
- Request a refund
If you opted to have your bib package mailed to you: Once your package is shipped, you are officially checked in to the race and no longer qualify for our refund, deferment, or transfer options.
There are 2 types of transfers.
Transfer for refund: Original registrant initiates transfer to another runner. Once the new runner has completed their registration, paid the current registration fee + $20 transfer fee, the original runner will receive a refund of their registration fee, minus the $1 refund fee. If any add-ons were purchased with the original registration, these fees WILL NOT be refunded.
Gift Transfer: Original registrant initiates transfer to another runner and pays the $20 gifting fee. The new runner will receive a link to complete their registration. With gift transfers, only the registration fee carries over to the new runner. The new runner does have the option to purchase add-ons during registration, but they will need to pay for any of the add-on expenses.
After March 30th, all transfers will need to be processed at the Race Expo on March 31, 2017. Only the runner that is purchasing the bib must attend the Expo. Upon payment, the new runner will be provided a new bib and packet. The new runner will need the original registrant’s name, race confirmation number, and the $20 payment (cash or credit card only, no checks).
You have 2 choices when it comes to deferment. You can defer to the following year’s event (the 2018 Zion Half Marathon), or you can Transfer to another one of our events.
Defer to another race: Runners will be allowed to defer their registration to any eligible Vacation Races event (provided in a drop-down list on the form) for a $20 fee. If the race you’re looking for isn’t available on the drop-down menu, you should request a refund or transfer your bib instead. Only the amount of the registration, not the race extras or processing fees, will be deferred. Just login to your RunSignUp account, select your registration for the Zion Half Marathon, and select “Transfer to Another Race.” Here is a link to get you started.
Defer to next year’s race: To defer to the 2018 Zion Half Marathon, you can log into your RunSignUp account and defer your registration. This will remove you from the 2017 race and put you on our deferral list for the 2018 race. When the 2018 race opens for registration, you will receive an email with a unique registration link so you can sign up for 2018 free of charge, but you will be charged a $20 processing fee. You will not be automatically registered for the event. Here is a link to help you get started.
If you request a refund during our Early Bird Registration, you’ll get a full refund with no processing fee. During our Regular Registration there will be a $10 processing fee. Once we get into Late Registration you will no longer be able to get a refund.
