If you have purchased a place in the Marathon or Half Marathon 2017 but find yourself no longer able to take part due to illness, injury or some other unforeseen circumstance, you have the option to defer your entry to the 2018 event.
A deferred entry will guarantee you a place in the Marathon or Half Marathon 2018 with a 20% discount on the entry fee. In order to defer your entry you must complete the deferral request form by 28th April 2017 @ 11:59pm . The deferral process guarantees your discounted entry but is NOT automatic. You will receive an email early July 2017 inviting you to enter the Marathon or Half Marathon 2018 event with a deferral discount code. You must register using the link and you must complete this before 30th September 2017.
Please read our deferral policy below prior to completing the deferral request form. You will still receive your Race Pack if you entered before 31st March, unless you gave us written approval to cancel your place.
Charity entries may not defer using this form – if you can no longer take part and are registered through a charity, please contact them directly.
The deadline for deferral is 28th April 2017 @ 11:59.
