What are your routes?
Can I switch my race distance?
Yes, no problem. For planning reasons, we prefer all distance changes are made by August 15. We will allow switches until September 8, 2017 via www.RaceRoster.com – New this year: switches are no longer processed at race-kit pick-up.
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.
You are responsible to find your replacement and collect payment. We do not have a wait list.
You CANNOT split up a Tartan Twosome and sell it to two people running single races.
IMPORTANT: If you are purchasing a bib from someone after August 15 – you will pay the registration fee to them (not us). Bibs have already been printed and swag ordered. After you pick-up their race-kit and swag come to the help-desk with proof of purchase (email or their registration confirmation) and sign waiver. If you prefer to have a blank bib instead of the bib you purchased, you will be required to pay an additional $20 (cash or cheque only) to Maritime Race Weekend for the cost of a new bib, new chip and administration of the switch. You can also switch the swag for a different style and size from our swag swap table.
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.
