We are using RunSignup. One of the things we like about it is that you can now manage your own registration. So, if you want to:

  • Transfer your registration to another runner
  • Defer your registration to next year
  • Switch from Half Marathon to Marathon or the other way around

You can do it yourself online without waiting for someone to manage the transactions. Just go to our registration site and Find a Participant. Find your record. Claim it if you haven’t already. Then to to MORE INFO on your record. In the menu, you can do the stuff in the list above. IF YOU CAN’T FIGURE THIS OUT, CLICK HERE FOR MORE EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS

Now, since we’re still new with this service, if you have a problem, please contact us and we’ll get things figured out–the tech support guys at RunSignup are pretty darn good, and we should be able to clear things up really fast.
