What If I Can No Longer Run My Race?

So, you can no longer run your race? We’re sorry to hear that! Whether illness, injury, change of plans – we understand that unexpected things happen!

While we don’t offer refunds or transfers, we can provide race credit for the full amount of your registration when you purchase an NYCRUNS Membership for $50. Race credit is usable towards any NYCRUNS-owned race (usually indicated by NYCRUNS in the title). Please note that race credit is only usable for 50% of any given race’s cost and expires one year after the date of issue in most instances.

Once you’re an NYCRUNS member (or if you’re a member already) you can use one of your two any reason deferrals or one of your unlimited medical deferrals to receive race credit to use towards future NYCRUNS races. Any-reason deferrals must be processed three Mondays before the race. Medical deferrals must be processed the Thursday before the race.

Active duty members of the armed forces who are unexpectedly called away may receive a refund of their race entry. Please email for any additional questions concerning refunds for active duty military.

Additionally, runners have a 24-hour window in which to cancel a transaction. Please email for cancellation requests within 24 hours of the time of registration.
