Switching Races Policy

Race switches must be done at packet pick-up

You may switch your current OBX Marathon or OBX TRI Weekend race to any other race of your choosing during that same weekend. 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

Bib transfers must be done at packet pick-up

To transfer a race bib from one person to another will require a $25 bib transfer fee. Please note that the participant to whom the bib is transferred cannot upgrade that transfer. 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.
