FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Air Force Marathon opens new transfer program
Wright-Patterson AFB, OH – For a limited time starting today, any Air Force
Marathon, Half Marathon or 10K registered runner who is not able to
participate in the September 17 event can transfer their entry to a
non-registered runner through the marathon's new Transfer Program.
The online transfer form is available at www.usafmarathon.com.
All registered runners have until July 24 to transfer their marathon, half
marathon or 10K entries to an unregistered runner. The transfer form must
include the runner's confirmation number received upon registration. Once
the form is completed, the transferring runner will be emailed a link with
a unique transfer code and passcode to send to a runner of their choice,
who can then register for the sold-out Air Force Marathon events. The codes
will be emailed within four business days.
Only registered participants can transfer their spots in the 15th Air Force
Marathon. New runners will be required to complete a form and pay a
transfer fee. Transfer fees are $30 for the full marathon, $25 for the half
marathon and $20 for the 10K. All new runners must complete the transfer
process by July 31.
"This is the first year we've sold out early enough to implement a transfer
program," said Race Director Molly Louden, speaking about the marathon's
early June sell-out. "This will enable those runners who signed up early,
but for one reason or another are now unable to attend, to find another
runner to take their place."
Registered runners wanting to make a transfer can find others seeking a
coveted spot in the Air Force Marathon on the marathon's Facebook page in
the Discussion section. The Air Force Marathon is open to the public and is
a Boston Qualifying race. For more information visit the website at
