NOTE

Miramichi Rock N Run does not refund registration fees.  However, we do recognize that there may be circumstances that arise after registering, such as injury or illness that may prevent you from running on race day.  Should this occur please let us know by email one week before the event and we can do one of the following:
1. Registrations may be deferred to the following year by emailing info@runmiramichi.ca. Deferrals are good for the following year only and cannot be transferred to another runner.
2. You may change the event that you registered for (e.g. from 1/2 marathon to 10K). Changes may be made on Saturday at Race Kit Pick-up or race morning before 7:30AM. If you are changing to a more expensive event you will be required to pay the difference in cost between your original event and your new event should your new event be higher priced. There is no refund if you change to a lower priced event. The difference must be paid at Race Kit Pick-up.
If you win a door prize, age category prize or other prize, you must pick it up same day! (We won’t be mailing these). Visit Lindy in the awards tent after the race to check!
