You may defer your registration from the 2016 VCU Health 8k, American Family Fitness Half Marathon or Anthem Richmond Marathon to the 2017 event.  The fee to defer a registration is $10 for the 8k and $20 for the half or full marathons.  You may only defer to and from the same event: 2016 8k to 2017 8k, 2016 Half to 2017 Half or 2016 Full to 2017 Full.  Deferred registrations may not be transferred to another person.  Refunds will not be issued under any circumstances.  All deferrals must be done by October 31, 2016 and may be used only for the 2017 event.  You may only defer an entry once (i.e., if you deferred your 2015 entry to 2016, you will not be able to defer it again in 2016 to 2017). There will be no deferrals at the race expo.

Please note: Deferrals do not apply to training team registrations.

The deadline to defer was October 31. Deferrals to 2017 are no longer being accepted.
