We’ll miss you but hope to see you back next year!


All deferrals must be made online. Online requests will be accepted from 7/5/2019 through 11/6/2019.

The fee to defer is $40.00.  This allows you to defer until 2020 and not incur a cost when registering.

Deferred runners will receive an email with instructions on how to register for the next race in the spring of 2020. Runners will have ONLY one (1) week to register using their deferral code.

To request a deferral go to Runsignup and click on “sign in.” Once you are logged in to your account, click on “PROFILE,” scroll down to “My Registered Races,” and click on “My Registered Races.” Select “View/Edit Registration” and click on the “Defer Registration” tab.

If your “buddy” registered you for the race, they must also defer you.
