    Hi, I recently deferred my race to next year but would actually like to transfer to another race instead. Is there a way to do this if I’ve already deferred?

  • Rich Koehler says:

    I have registered for the Great Smokey Mountains half marathon and 5K individually. How do I change to Black Bear Double?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Rich – I have transferred your registration to the Black Bear Double and sent a confirmation email.

  • Karen Schreiber says:

    How many times can you defer your registration?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Karen – A registration can be deferred as many times as you need to defer it. After the first time, however, you will need to email info@vacationraces.com for help, as the registration system won’t let you defer more than once.

  • tim says:

    If I sign up for the 100k and later determine that I only can do the 50k, is that possible?

  • Kevin says:

    It won’t let me select my event to transfer to another event. It is just grayed out.

  • Julia Jones says:

    I am signed up to do the Lake Powell half Marathon but am wanting to transfer to a different race. Is there a deadline for doing that?

  • eil says:

    I have transferred my registration from Zion Ultra to Glacier Half next year. Since there is a price difference, do I get refunded (of the difference)?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Eil – Since the refund deadline has not passed I have issued you a refund for the $66.00 difference in registration price.

  • Susan H. says:

    I am thinking about transferring from the Zion half to 2019 Zion Ultra Marathons & Trail Half Marathon. What is the difference?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Susan – The course is the big difference. The Zion Half is a road race and the Zion Ultra Half Marathon is a trail race. You can find each course description on the race’s website.

  • FDPROPHETE says:

    I’m interested in purchasing a bib in Half Marathon if someone is dropping out. Is that possible? How?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi – You will need to find someone who is selling their bib. The best place to find a bib is on the race’s event page on the Vacation Races Facebook page. If you are able to find a bib to buy, you will need to follow these bib exchange instructions:

      1. Sign In to RunSignUp
      2. Go to your Profile
      3. Click Manage Registration next to the registration that you would like to transfer to another person
      4. Click the Transfer To Another Runner menu item

    Can a runner transfer a bib and the person it is transfered to register it for a a differnt runner (as a gift)

  • Sarah says:

    Is it possible to transfer a 2019 AC 50-miler to the 2020 Grand Circle? Thank you in advance for your help …

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sarah – The 2020 Grand Circle event won’t be open for a while so your best bet is to defer your Antelope Canyon event and then use your deferment code for Grand Circle once registration opens. You can defer your registration by following these instructions:
      1. Sign In to RunSignUp
      2. Go to your Profile
      3. Click Manage Registration next to the registration that you would like to transfer
      4. Click the Transfer to Another Race menu item
      5. Find the race that you would like to transfer into and click the Start Transfer button

  • Nat says:

    Hey there, I am trying to transfer my race, but it is saying registration is full. Is there a wait list or a way I can know for sure if I am unable to transfer, if not will I have to forfeit the money I’ve paid? Let me know thanks!

    • Ryan Jenkins says:

      Hi Nat, which races are you trying to transfer from/to?

      We don’t do waitlists, once a race is sold out it’s sold out. Having said that if you’re not able to transfer into the race you want you could defer to the following year or transfer your bib to another runner.

  • Anna Hamilton says:

    My flight from Denver to St. George cancelled late Friday evening and I wasn’t able to get in to run the Zion Half. How can I transfer my registration? The time limit to transfer passed just hours after my flight cancelled an I wasn’t able to get to a computer in time to do it as I was at the airport all evening. It would be a shame if I spent over $120 and wasn’t able to transfer. I can’t find a number to call for help.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Anna – I’m sorry you weren’t able to make it this weekend. I have deferred your registration – you will receive an email later today with a deferment code.

  • Jayme Baldwin says:

    I have unexpected health issue that will keep me from running the 55k if I’m already signed up can I switch to the half marathon? I have made hotel reservations and have all my kids taking a few days off school so it would be a bummer to not participate. If not is it wise to start the 55k and drop at the half marathon mark? Also I originally paid for camping but not going to be using our spot, and last my birth year is actually 1980, my fault I rushed registration, sorry so much coming at you.
    Thank you,
    Jayme Baldwin

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jayme – I have canceled your campsite and issued you a refund, updated your birth year, and switched you to the half marathon distance. You should receive a confirmation email.

  • Jamie zumbro says:

    Hi
    So sad have to miss this. I had a family emergency:(

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jamie – I’m sorry to hear you won’t be able to join us this weekend. We wish your family our best.

  • Trevor Murphy says:

    I am trying to switch from the 100 miler to the 100km. Can I do that through the website? Thanks!

  • Tyler says:

    Hi, can you transfer races at the race expo?

  • Trinity Bennett says:

    Hello, I’m paid and registered to run the 2019 Black Bear double (5k and Half marathon) for Vacation Races Great Smokey Mountain race. Unfortunately I’m going to be having an unexpected surgery mid July and won’t be able to recover from that and train in time. I saw a short list of races I can transfer my money to but couldn’t get any more 2020 races to load after March 2020. If someone can let me know which races I can transfer the credits to and where to start that’d be amazing! Thank you!!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Trinity – Only a couple of 2020 race registrations are currently open – Zion and Antelope Canyon. The rest of the year’s races will be opening soon, usually a couple of months after this year’s race. If the race you would like to transfer to isn’t open by the Smoky Mountains race, defer your registration. This means you will get a deferment code that you can use to register for any of our races.

  • Julie says:

    I’m registered for the Black Bear Double and now injured. Can I transfer to *just* the Smoky Mountain Friday 5K, and transfer my Half to another half-marathon in 2020? Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Julie – Technically, no. But I can transfer you to the 5k and email you a deferment code for the half marathon portion. Let me know if this is what you would like to do.

  • Diane Cheryll says:

    I am registered for the Black Bear Double. I am not able to run the Half Marathon due to an injury, but will walk/run the 5K. I wanted to make sure that I will be able to pick up the hoodie I purchased. Also, one of my friends deferred her half marathon and will not be running the 5K, can I pick up her hoodie?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Diane – I can defer your half marathon portion of the double if you would like. In that case, I will refund the hoodie and you will receive a code for the half portion. Otherwise, you can pick up all of your swag for the double but just run the 5k. Email me at kaelee@vacationraces.com if you would like to defer a portion of your registration.

  • chloe says:

    I am scheduled this weekend to run the smoky mountains half and am not going to be able to make it. unfortunately I am injured:( can I transfer to next years? its really the only one I can make it to out of all of the races….unless you guys add an East Coast race.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

  • Megan says:

    If I transfered from a 50 mile race to a half marathon- will i receive a refund of some of the amount?

  • Whitney says:

    I am registered for the Mt. Rushmore race but won’t be able to make it. I was wanting to transfer it to the Smokey Mt. Race but it was just completed for this year. When will the registration open? Should I just defer to next year? Will I be able to defer and then transfer to the Smokey Mt race when it opens?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Whitney – Yes, go ahead and defer your Mount Rushmore registration. After the race, you will receive an email with your deferment code that can be used to register for Great Smoky Mountains once registration opens.
