Mini-Marathon: Another ChanceJanuary 6th, 2010 at 11:30 am by Eric Halvorson under Eric Halvorson's Blog, Mini-Marathon
The 500 Festival Committee knows some people who’ve entered the Mini won’t be able to participate. It also knows a lot of people want to be in the race — but missed the deadline. The “Transfer Program” aims to solve both problems.
The 500 Festival says the program will run from January 11 through April 7. Here’s how it works:
- A registered participant wanting to transfer his/her registration to someone else must find someone who would like to participate, a person who is not already registered for the Mini-Marathon.
- The person transferring into the Mini-Marathon must complete a “transfer request” form at www.500festival.com. There will be a $20 processing fee associated with the transfer request. Transfer requests will only be processed online. Only the person transferring into the Mini-Marathon needs to fill out the transfer request form.
- Once the transfer request is confirmed by the 500 Festival, the participant transferring out of the Mini-Marathon will be removed from race registration and the participant transferring into the race will be added to the field.
