Event Cancellation + Transfer Policy
Entry fees are non-refundable.
We appreciate you, as our customer, and understand that sometimes you just can’t make the race. We have created a great policy that offers you several different options in the event you cannot attend on race day. (You may choose only one of the options below.)
Defer Your Entry: You may defer your entry to the 2019 event. Deferrals must be processed by the event registration team. An administration fee of $25 will be charged in the event you defer. The deferral will expire after the 2019 event and you will not be able to defer your registration again. Athletes may request a deferral by submitting an email request to [email protected]prior to October 7th, 2018.
Transfers: You may not give or sell your number to anyone else. However, bib transfers are allowed for an administration charge of $25 and must be processed through your ACTIVE MyEvents account no later than October 12th, 2018. If you transfer your bib, you will receive a refund (minus the $25 administration charge) once the new participant signs up. The new runner will need to pay the full entry fee at the time of the transfer. This process is in place to avoid any fraudulent sales of race numbers.
Log into your MyEvents.ACTIVE.comaccount and select “Transfer registration” to begin the process.
Purchase Event Insurance: Booking Protect offers Registration Protector, which provides insurance to runners in many emergency and injury situations. This must be purchased at the time of registration, and cannot be retroactively added. If an event occurs that is covered under their policy, you would need to file a claim to receive a full race refund.
For questions and inquiries regarding submitting an insurance claim, please contact Booking Protect using the following methods.
Submit a Refund Application: https://bookingprotect.com/refund/

Virtual Run: If you cannot attend the race in person you may run the 10 Miler “virtually” and still receive the same perks. To run virtually you must upgrade your registration to the virtual option for $10. Log into your MyEvents.ACTIVE.comaccount and select “Purchase merchandise” to select the Virtual Upgrade option. Visit the “Virtual Run” section on the Distancespage of our website for full information on participating as a Virtual Runner.
“The weather was great for this race in addition to the ocean view! I loved the staggered starting times which enabled most everyone to finish around the same time. The shirts were really nice and the medal was cute AND useful!” @littlebvt from Moreno Valley, CA
:The race is out and back along PCH. There is so much to see from the Bolsa Chica Wetlands on the way out to waves crashing on the beach on the way back. I enjoyed the bands playing “Beach Themed” songs. And then there is the medal. I ran this race specifically to earn the Surf Board Bottle Opener Medal” @padgtnbear from Fullerton, CA
