Athletes With Disabilities
Criteria for AWD Entry
As a runner it’s inevitable that you’re going to register for a race that at some point later on you’re unfortunately not going to be able to start for one reason or another. It happens to all of us, especially as race registrations need to open months in advance of the races themselves, and life happens during those interim months: Injuries, work, family emergencies, etc. We assure you we get it; we really do. And we strive to be as understanding and cooperative as we practically and financially can.
But just because the race hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean we haven’t already incurred significant expenses related to that race. We pay taxes on the income from the entry fees; we pay for permits, insurance, and supplies (including race shirts, buckles and other awards) For all of these reasons and more we cannot offer refunds, deferrals or transfers.
