After 16 September 2020 there are no person to person transfers, and all distance or category transfers must be done at registration. Transfers do not apply to future years, or if the new entrant is ineligible due to age.
3. Refunds: Entry fee refunds requested from 1 December 2019 to 11.59 on Thursday 30 April 2020 will receive 50% of their entry fee. Unfortunately, entry fees are non-refundable from 6 September 2020 and we cannot refund entry fees after this date. Requests for refunds must be notified to the organiser before 11.59 on Thursday 30 April 2020. No entry fees will be refunded after this date (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any refund request on downgrade between event distances).
Anyone who enters from Friday 20 March 2020 onwards will not be given a refund if requested. They will however be offered the option to move their entry to the 2021 Rotorua Marathon to be held on Saturday 1 May 2021.
