Transfers & Deferrals

Pike’s Peek 10K Refund, Transfer and Deferment Policy

In order to ensure safety and a quality event, we must plan certain logistics and costs based on the number of registrants, not the number of participants.  In order to manage costs and expectations for all runners, the Pike’s Peek 10K does not offer refunds.

We do understand that life happens – injuries, business trips and other things sometimes have the nerve to interfere with our running.  In order to accommodate registrants who encounter these instances we offer the following transfer and deferral options.  Note that there is a deadline of Sunday, April 14 for all transfer and deferral requests.

Transfers

Transferring is a paid registrant finding another runner to run in their spot AND requires notification and cooperation with MCRRC.   Simply giving your bib to another runner without notification and cooperation with MCRRC creates a bandit situation which is disrespectful to other runners and creates serious liability and safety issues for the race organizers, medical staff and other volunteers conducting the race.  Runners who provide, or accept, bibs without notification and cooperation with MCRRC will be disqualified and may be banned from participation in future MCRRC events.  Thank you for your understanding.

Registrants wishing to transfer their registration are responsible for finding a new runner to take their spot. Registrants who transfer their registration to another runner do not receive a refund from MCRRC.  The financial aspects of the transfer must be handled between the two runners and MCRRC bears no responsibility for any costs.

To transfer your registration, you must fill out this form.  You will be required to provide your full name, email address, phone, and date of birth. In addition, you must also provide the name, email and phone number for the new runner.  This form MUST be submitted by the transfer deadline of Sunday, April 14.

On Monday, April 15, all runners receiving a transfer will be receive a code via email which will allow them to complete their registration for the race.   New runners MUST complete their registration by Monday, April 22.  

Deferrals

Deferring is a paid registrant who is unable to participate in the 2019 Pike’s Peek 10K but wishes to participate in the 2020 Pike’s Peek 10K.  Deferrals to other MCRRC races are not possible.

Registrants who defer their 2019 entry to the 2020 race do not receive a refund.  Instead, they will receive a code to register for the 2020 race.  There is a $10 fee for this service which is payable upon registration for the 2020 race.   The registrant will not pay the regular 2020 registration fee.

To defer your registration, you must fill out this form.  You will be required to provide your full name, email address, phone number and date of birth.   This form MUST be submitted by the deferral deadline of Sunday, April 14.

On or before January 15, 2020 all registrants who have requested a deferral to the 2020 Pike’s Peek 10K will receive an email with a code to register for the 2020 race.   All deferral entries to the 2020 event must be completed by March 31, 2020.

Note that MCRRC may make exceptions to these policies for active duty military personnel due to military orders or special circumstances.  Please send inquiries to pikespeek@mcrrc.org.
