Be sure to read the entire Race Details page in addition to this FAQ to make sure you have all the necessary info about The Maine Coast Half & Full Marathon!
Your additional purchases, like merchandise and shuttle bus tickets, will automatically transfer over to the new runner. Note that we can’t make any changes to your original apparel sizes or shuttle bus times, so the new runner will have to take everything that you purchased as is. They may swap sizes if available at the merchandise table.
However, if you would like to move up to the full marathon from the half marathon, please contact [email protected] and we can assist you.
If you buy the Refund Option for $10 (half) / $15 (full) when you register, you can get a full refund for any reason prior to the day of the race. Without the protection, you can get a refund of your entry cost minus the online processing fee and an $10 / $15 cancellation fee through March 8th, after which it jumps to $20 / $25 through April 12th (no refunds will be granted after this date for those who did not purchase the refund option). All refunds will be sent back to the credit card you used to register. No cash or checks will be sent.
Alternatively, you can request a deferral to next year’s race for a 15% fee of your total registration cost, including any merchandise purchased.
All refund/deferral requests must be submitted by April 12th.
