Runners who send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by or before August 31 will be offered a partial refund of $25. The refund will be applied to the credit card that was used to register the runner. Runners who withdraw after August 31 will not be eligible for the partial refund. The marathon ended its carry-forward policy after the 2011 race. Requests to transfer entries should be sent to email@example.com and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
