What are your routes?
Can I switch my race distance?
Yes, no problem. We process distance switches at race-kit pick-up.
If you want to run a longer distance, you must pay the difference at race-kit pick-up (cash and cheque only).
We do not provide refunds if you decide to run or walk shorter distance.
Can I get a refund?
We sympathize with life’s uncertainties, but we do not offer refunds. If you decide that you would like to run/walk a shorter race than the one you have signed up for, then you can always drop down to another race with no additional cost. It wouldn’t be fair to say yes to some and no to others based on circumstances, so we so do not make exceptions to this policy.
Can I defer?
Deadline to defer is July 31, 2017. Sorry, no extensions.
Can I sell or transfer to a friend?
Yes, you can sell or transfer your registration right up to the end of race-kit pick-up (Friday, Sept 16 @ 4pm).
You are responsible to find your replacement and collect payment. We do not have a wait list.
We process transfers at race-kit pick-up. The person running in your place should bring paper registration filled out (see below), have an email from you confirming transfer and proof of purchase.
Important: You CANNOT split up a Tartan Twosome and sell it to two people running single races.
Note: All swag has been purchased, the person that fills your spot cannot have custom bib or switch the swag, but we do have blank bibs and swag swap table at race-kit pick-up.
Is your marathon a Boston Qualifier?
Yes it’s a Boston Qualifier. Plus, we make handmade cheer signs for every marathoner around the half-way mark AND have a mobile aid unit driving the course between 30-42.2K in case you need a pick-me-up! Though we recommend you bring your own supplies, if you run out of gels, gum, need Vaseline or glide – our mobile aid unit is travelling the route and ready to help YOU!
Is there a time-limit on the marathon?
Yes, 6 hours.
Are there age limitations?
For the safety of younger runners, the following age limitations have been set for Maritime Race Weekend registration:
- Children under the age of 6 are not eligible to register.
- Children between the ages of 6-12 years are permitted to run the 5K race, but must be accompanied along the route the entire time by a registered participant over 18 years of age. Parents/guardians not registered for the race are not permitted to run/walk the route with their child.
- Children 12-18 years are permitted to run the 10K with parental consent.
- Children under 18 years cannot register for our 15K or half-marathon.
- Adults 18 years or older can register for all races (5K, 10K, 15K half-marathon and marathon).
Are strollers allowed on the route?
Sorry, we cannot permit strollers to participate in the Maritime Race Weekend – but we do encourage your children to attend and cheer from the sidewalk. Only registered participants with a race-bib will be granted access onto the route.
Can dogs run or walk the route?
Sorry, we cannot permit dogs on-leash or off-leash with participants.
