Registration, Change, and Race Day Policies

At the Monster Race Series we get many questions about registration distance changes, transferring a registration to another runner, and even what to do if you lose your bib and chip.  Please read through our Race Change and Registration Policies below.  They will help you understand what to do and what to expect come race day.

General Race Change Policy:
48-Hour Change Policy: You have 48 hours after the time of registration to make any desired changes to your race entry without penalty.  Go to Contact Us and use the drop down menu to select an option - This will direct your email to the correct Monster Race Employee  {Note: as of 2/19 we are reworking this so all emails go to monsterraceseries@gmail.com currently - should be fixed up by March}.

Due in part to the cost of gear and other materials, there are no refunds, deferrals, or transfers to other races in the series.  Name Transfers to another participant are allowed for a race (see below)

Race Change Options:

1. Transfer to someone else:  

To change your race entry to another person - $25.00  -  Note, we are in the process of automating + digitizing this policy. Please do NOT mail this form, scan or take a photo and email it to monsterraceseries@gmail.com .   Click here to download name-transfer form. 

Note: ignoring this is highly discouraged as it creates a legal liability and can (and it seems at least once every race does) disrupt standings.  If we catch you doing this during the race or during the post-race photo/video review, you will be disqualified.

 

2. Race Changes (Changing our Distance)

To upgrade or downgrade your distance - $15.00 + difference in race price (if upgrading)

Click here to change your race distance

You will not be reissued a new bib and number.  You will receive a new distance sticker inside your packet to adhere to your bib to ensure you receive the proper finisher medal.  If you already received your packet, then pick up your sticker at the registration area on race day.  Additional questions -  email us.

 

3. Lost Bib/Chip (need new one?)

Lost bib & chip:  Many people pick up their packet early or receive the mailing. Please note it is our policy if you lose your packet (bib and chip) there will be a $5 replacement fee in accordance with our 'race day pickup fee'.  Please come to packet pickup to replace your bib.

There will be no replacement for lost gear or gear where the tracking # shows it has been received;  please provide an address that is likely to be attended.

 

4. Adding Race Mail-Out or Race-Day Pickup

Didn't pick up packet at packet pick-up but want it on race day:

  • Race Day pick-up fee for all races is $20.  You can purchase day-of pickup at this link  or pay cash on-site.
  • Mailout for races begins as $4.99, and the deadline is generally posted but is approximately 2 weeks before the race.  Price may increase to owe for increased shipping costs closer to the date.

 

Race Day Policies (reiterated)

  1. No refunds.
  2. No transfers outside the above.  Any questions outside the above, email us. 
  3. If you walk with strollers, be respectful of others;  please keep to the back of the pack and to the right on the path.
  4. We love dogs, but for liability reasons we don't allow them out running the race.  ESPECIALLY at CHS Field.
