No Transfer Policy of Bib Number or Registration
Race Entries are NOT Transferable. Entries once purchased may not be resold, exchanged or given to another person. Historically the Championship Racing has never permitted refunds, rollovers, deferrals, exchanges or transfers. Doing so is neither practical nor appropriate for an events our size. We order shirts and bibs and other items based on the registration statistics in the data base. Much of what we do is personalized to the runner or walker who registers, including age division considerations, bib names, and the insurance related release each registrant signs.
Transfers, as a matter of policy are not a good idea. An entry into a running/walking event is not like a ticket to a ball game. Instead it has too many personal and legal attributes to be passed around. And when purchased that point is made perfectly clear: No Refunds, Exchanges, Rollovers, Deferrals or Transfers.
There is an even more serious side to “transfers.” Recently at another Event a registered participant gave a bib to an unregistered person. That unregistered person then placed high in the finish order and tried to collect an award. When the officials discovered the illegal transfer the matter was turned over to the local District Attorney and the illegal transferee was charged with fraud and false impersonation. It is understood that person was found guilty or plead guilty.
Example also, a registered participant gave a bib to an unregistered person. That unregistered person was injured and was transported to the hospital. The only identifying information was the person’s Bib number which lead the race director and medical team contacting the wrong people, thus potentially delaying needed medical attention.
