Refunds, Transfers, and Deferrals

We have revisited and revised our policy on entry refunds, deferrals, and transfers to provide more athlete flexibility for event participation. A link to this policy will be included in the registration process, whereby participants must indicate that they understand and accept the terms.

  • No refunds on services fees, donations or merchandise.
  • Deferrals are only good for the following year, in the same event.
  • No refunds on transactions over 365 days.

Deferrals allow a participant unable to attend this year’s event to transfer their registration to the following year. The deferral is applied only to the event in question, in this case the 2024 Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K.

Should you need to defer or decide to change your registration for any reason, please follow the instructions on how to defer your registration through the link below.

*Active duty and military personnel who are deployed or recalled may be refunded or defer at no cost. Proof of deployment or recall is required.
