Entry fees are non-refundable; race numbers and entries cannot be transferred to another person. No exceptions. This means once we have received your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate, and you may not give or sell your number or timing tag to anyone else. Anyone found participating with another person’s number will be disqualified and both people will be barred from future Sports Backers events, including the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k and VCU Health Richmond Marathon.

If you are unable to participate and would like your race shirt mailed to you, there is a $5 cost to do so. Checks (made payable to "Sports Backers") can be mailed to us at the following address:

Sports Backers
100 Avenue of Champions
Richmond, VA 23230
