How To: Defer to Next Year

Refund policy details

To defer to the next year's event do the following:

  1. Sign in to your profile at
  2. Click Manage Registration next to the registration that you would like to defer
  3. Click the Defer menu item

This will remove you from this year's race and put you on the deferral list for next year's race. You won't see your deferred registration in your RunSignUp account, but don't be alarmed - before the race, you'll receive a deferment coupon that you can use to register for next year’s race (or any of our other races).

    Hi! I deferred my Yosemite 2020 registration but do not see the option to enroll in the 2021 event. Can you please help me?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Isidalia – Registration for the 2021 event isn’t open yet, it opens in a couple of months. Once it does, you will be able to transfer into that event. We will send a reminder when registration opens.

  • Cathy Howell says:

    we cannot travel due to covid-19 and my only option seems to defer my registration – which I did …
    Will you be reconsidering your options to allow people to refund registration fees?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Cathy – The best option at this point is to allow our runners to defer their race to next year and waive all fees. If anything changes we will let you know.
