Outer Banks Visitor's Bureau
Need to defer your registration? The deadline to do so for 2023 OBX Marathon Weekend is TBD (usually a couple of weeks before race day).
You may only defer to and from the same event: 2023 Marathon to 2024 Marathon, 2023 Half Marathon to 2024 Half Marathon, 2023 8k to 2024 8K, 2023 5K to 2024 5K. You may only defer your race entry once (i.e. if you deferred your 2022 race entry to 2023, you will not be able to defer it again in 2023 to 2024). The deferral fee for each race will cost 40% of the original registration cost. We DO NOT offer deferrals for the Fun Run registration. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF RACE CANCELLATION. OBSE may choose to reschedule or defer participants (at a cost), but those who were already deferred will not have this option).
Switching Races Policy
Race switches must be done at packet pick-up
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
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.
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.
