Refund Policy

Early entrants who register by June 26, 2021 are eligible for refunds of entry fees or may defer to another upcoming race (please see our schedule of races). To receive a refund, transfer or credit, you must register by June 26, 2021 for the Fort DeSoto Distance Classic and notify the race director by e-mail (not Facebook) at least 3 weeks before the race or by September 5, 2021.  This date is when we order your bib and start preparing your packet for delivery by mail.

There are no refunds for cancellations due to an Act of God, such as severe weather, fires or floods. Refunds, deferrals, or transfers are NOT available if you fail to show up for the race.

All refunds will be issued by check after the last race of our series, the Shamrock Distance Classic, on or about April 1, 2022. Refunds do not include processing fees charged by Active.com.

If our race permit is withdrawn due to COVID-19 and this race is cancelled, you may defer your entry to any of our future races (we have 5 races per season) in our 2021-22 season. There is no transfer fee nor processing fee. There will be no refunds.

THERE ARE NO TRANSFERS OF BIBS TO OTHER ATHLETES. A runner participating under someone else’s name will NOT be covered by USATF insurance if there should be an accident and will be disqualified if caught.
