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.

Days OutBy Life TimeBy Participant
90+60% RefundDeferral fee of 40% of current registration fee
Free Deferral
89 or LessNo RefundDeferral fee of 40% of current registration fee
Free Deferral
  • 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.

Bib to Bib Transfer

You may officially transfer your race entry to another non-registered runner, space permitting. Transfers are available for request up until Thursday, May 16 (11:59 PM CT). For further details and steps, see the instructions below.

Before you begin the transfer process, please note:

  • You will not be refunded/reimbursed for your original registration. Any transfer compensation must be arranged between you and the transfer recipient. The race organizers are not responsible for the terms of payment between parties in the transfer process* and we do not condone the resale of registrations at elevated prices.
  • The currently registered runner will be charged a $40 transfer/deferral fee to complete the transfer for full and half marathon distances and $10 for any race distance less than a half marathon.
  • A new bib will be assigned to the race entry recipient only after the new registration is complete online.
  • This policy is strictly available for race entry only. This policy does not apply to add-on purchases.
  • There are no transfer/deferral fee refunds under any circumstances.

How To Transfer Your Bib:

  1. Find a non-registered runner interested in officially participating in the said event. Race organizers do not participate in this part of the process.
  2. To complete the transfer, the registered runner will log-in to their ChronoTrack account, click “Change Race”, select “Defer my entry to another event”, then follow the steps to complete the deferral. A unique code will be auto-generated which may be used by the new runner to register for the event.
  • The currently registered athlete will be withdrawn from the event.
  • Once the registered athlete completes the deferral and pays the deferral fee, the unique code may be used by the new runner to register for the event at no additional cost. Use this link to complete the transfer registration with the unique deferral code.
  • Once the transaction is finalized, the transfer recipient will receive an email confirming race registration.
  • Once the transfer recipient completes the registration, the deferral will no longer be valid for the following year’s event.

Note: there is no guarantee a transfer may be made.

Any participant who transfers their race entry or race bib without following the above process will be removed from official race results and disqualified from participating in any future Life Time event.

Life Time reserves the right, in its sole and complete discretion, to deny entry, to revoke the entry application of any applicant at any time, and/or to disqualify any individual from the Event.

It is important to note that Life Time is not involved in transactions between individuals. We do not endorse or guarantee the authenticity of race entries sold by individual users. We strongly recommend exercising caution and conducting thorough due diligence when purchasing race entries from other users. We do not condone the resale of registrations at elevated prices.

This policy is strictly available for race entry only. This policy does not apply to add-on packages. There are no transfer/deferral fee refunds under any circumstances.
