You may defer your registration from the 2019 VCU Health Richmond Marathon, Markel Richmond Half Marathon or Richmond 8k to the 2020 event. The fee to defer a registration is $10 for the 8k and $20 for the half or full marathons. You may only defer to and from the same event: 2019 8k to 2020 8k, 2019 Half to 2020 Half or 2019 Full to 2020 Full. Deferred registrations may not be transferred to another person. Refunds will not be issued under any circumstances. All deferrals must be done by October 31, 2019 and may be used only for the 2020 event. You may only defer an entry once (i.e., if you deferred your 2018 entry to 2019, you will not be able to defer it again in 2019 to 2020). There will be no deferrals at the race expo.

Please note: Deferrals do not apply to training team registrations.
