In the absence of a bib transfer, refund, or deferral process, do you think it's ethical for Bank of America Chicago Marathon to pocket approx. $1.2 million in entry fees from runners unable to make it to the starting line?
It certainly seems like the public is getting screwed under Chicago's official "rules":
- Participant race number bibs are specific personal identifiers and may not be exchanged with or transferred/ sold to any other person.
- Sale and/or transfer of race entry/bibs is strictly prohibited and will result in the disqualification and/or banning of any individuals involved from future events.
- All entry fees are non-refundable, and may not be deferred toward a future event.
