Ultimate Guides are blog posts designed to be the best of the best. It's supposed to be the blog post to end all blog posts–everything your reader will ever need to know about the subject.
Race Deferral Policy
Policy on athlete deferrals applies to race in-person events only. Clinics not included.
SwimBikeRun Fun Club & Events does allow athletes to defer for any reason for a fee of $25, but this must be done at least 30 days before the race date.
Steps for Deferral:
1. Log in to your RunSignUp.com account
2. Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration
3. On the left of the screen select “Defer Registration” & follow the steps which includes paying the $25 deferral fee.
4. When a 2022 or 2023 registration for a comparable/similar race opens you will receive an email on how to register for the event at no charge. (You would incur a cost if you purchase any add-ons)
Note: If you purchased Registration Protector, you can ask the carrier (Allianz) if they can extend your coverage to the deferred event.
Event Transfer Policy
Race to another Race
Transferring from one race to another incurs NO TRANSFER FEE.
The transferred race must take place in the same calendar year as the original event. Any SOLD OUT events or Training Camps are not included.
If an athlete transfers from a more expensive race to a less expensive race, the difference will not be refunded.
If an athlete transfers from a lower-priced race to a higher-priced race, the difference must be paid in addition to the transfer fee.
Athletes must withdraw from a race no later than 30 days before the race date.
Athletes can transfer into eligible races up to 30 days before the race. This can be done via your Profile on RunSignUp.com.
If you purchased a One-Day USA Triathlon Membership when you registered for the race, you must email email@example.com to have your One-Day USA Triathlon Membership License moved from one event to the next. Once moved, the athlete can proceed with the transfer.
Races that are being transferred must have been open to the public for at least ten days.
Athletes are only permitted to request one transfer per race per calendar year.
Registrations for claimed deferrals are not transferable to another race.
If an athlete transfers, they will no longer be eligible for the full refund plan through the Registration Protector.
Within the Same Race (Event Transfer AKA Race Distance Changes)
Transfers from one event to another within the same race are permitted as long as General Registration is still open.
Transferring from one event to another within the same race is free of charge. This includes Individual to Relay and Relay to Individual.
If an athlete transfers from a higher priced event to a lower priced event, the difference will not be refunded.
If an athlete transfers from a lower-cost event to a higher-cost event, the athlete must pay the difference.
If an athlete transfers, they will no longer be eligible for the full refund plan through Registration Protector.
Transferring a bib from one person to another is not permitted. There are no exceptions.

Through our registration platform, SwimBikeRun Fun Club & Events provides Registration Protector. If you register for an SBR Fun event and are unable to attend, there are no refunds available UNLESS you have purchased Registration Protector and are in compliance with their terms and conditions. The event's proceeds, like all others, are used to cover the numerous nonrefundable pre- and post-race expenses required to put on the event (e.g., city permits, police and traffic control, security, participant shirts, finisher medals, race bib, timing chips, equipment rental, tents, event staff, signage, event supplies, portable restrooms, etc.). In addition, please see our SBR Fun Events Waiver: I acknowledge and agree that the Event Producer may, in its sole discretion, postpone, modify, or cancel the Event for any reason, including if it believes the race day conditions are unsafe. If the Event is delayed, modified, or cancelled due to acts of God or the elements (including, but not limited to, wind, rough water, rain, hail, hurricane, tornado, earthquake), acts of terrorism, fire, threatened or actual strike, labor difficulty, work stoppage, insurrection, war, public disaster, flood, unavoidable casualty, race course conditions, global pandemic, or any other cause beyond the Event Producer's control, there shall be no refund.
