Need to change your registration? The deadline to make changes to your registration for the OBX Marathon Weekend is at 11:59pm on Friday, October 21, 2022.

The following options are available:

  • Deferral
  • Switching race distances
  • Bib transfer

Deferral Policy

You may only defer to and from the same event: 2022 Marathon to 2023 Marathon, 2022 Half Marathon to 2023 Half Marathon, 2022 8k to 2023 8k, 2022 5k to 2023 5k. You may only defer your race entry once (i.e. if you deferred your 2021 race entry to 2022, you will not be able to defer it again in 2022 to 2023). The deferral fee for each race will cost 40% of the original registration cost. We DO NOT offer deferrals for the Southern 6, relays, or Fun Run registration. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF RACE CANCELLATION.

Switching Races Policy

You may switch your current OBX Marathon Weekend race to any other OBX Marathon Weekend race of your choosing. If you are switching to a shorter distance, or less expensive race, you WILL NOT receive a refund of the difference from your original registration. If you are switching to a longer race, or more expensive race, you will be required to pay the difference between your original race category and your new race category before your registration can be officially changed. Any fees you may owe for switching race categories should be paid at the time of your registration switch. If a race has been sold out, a registration change will no longer be available.

Bib Transfer Policy

To transfer a race bib from one person to another will require a $25 bib transfer fee. THE TRANSFER MUST BE DONE OFFICIALLY. To allow another person to unofficially compete with your bib will be grounds for disqualification from the race results and may result in a ban from all future OBXSE races and events.

Refunds Policy

Under no circumstances do we offer any refunds. If you purchased Race Insurance, that will be taken into consideration. Otherwise, there are absolutely NO refunds, even in the event of race cancellation — NO exceptions.
