Entry fees are not refundable under any circumstance. The Race Director reserves the right to modify or cancel the race or course for safety concerns, road condition concerns or natural disaster. In such cases there will be no refunds of race entry fees. Each athlete must accept any such risk of their entry fee paid. There is no complimentary race entry to a future race. Entry fees collected are used to develop and produce the event, in advance of the race date – including course preparation, race supplies, permits and administration. We will make every effort to produce a fair and safe event for all participants. Any decision we make that impacts the race date or potential cancellation is carefully considered and based on the overall event safety, sustainability and manageability.

In 2023, you may sell your bib to another person up until 7 business days prior to event. All bib sales must be done on the ACTIVE NETWORK.

WFPS Run will only accept bib transfers done through the ACTIVE network.  If you buy a bib and do not use the ACTIVE system to complete the transfer process, we cannot assist you in transferring the bib into your name.

Review these terms before starting process: 

  • Runners, please note that all bib sales/transfers are subject to a $20 fee.

  • The original registration fee is not refunded until the new participant accepts and completes the transfer process. ACTIVE.com processing fees are not refunded.
  • Once the recipient has accepted and completed the transfer, the original registrant will be canceled and refunded. Refunds are processed within 5-7 business days. A transfer fee is applied, it will be deducted automatically from the refund.
