Due to to upfront nature of event costs, all entry fees are non-refundable. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected business trip, family emergency, illness, pregnancy, etc. All participants acknowledge and accept this policy during the registration process.
DEFERRALS: While refunds are not possible, you can defer your race registration for one (1) calendar year. In order to defer your race registration, you must complete an Event Deferral Form and pay a deferral fee. Once registration opens for the following year, you will be sent a code via email to register yourself online free of charge. Please note, it will be your responsibility to register yourself for the next year's event. If for some reason the event is not continued at the original location, you will not receive a refund. You will be asked to choose from another Divas event.
CANCELLATIONS: If you cannot participate and do not want to defer to the following year, you can complete a Cancellation Form. By canceling your registration you will not receive a refund, but we will send your participant shirt to you after the race. No other participant materials (bibs, medals, bags, etc.) will be sent.
TRANSFERS: Participants can transfer their registration to another person for a $25 transfer fee (paid by the original registrant). All transfers must be completed online via Active.com. Please visit Active.com's website for more information about the transfer process. The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon does not facilitate transfers on behalf of participants.The new registrant will pay the current registration fee at the time of transfer. This means if the price has gone up since the original purchase, the new registrant must pay the higher price. The original registrant will get their base registration fee refunded to them by Active.com once the new registrant has registered successfully. Please note, the original registrant will remain registered in our system until the new one registers.
Our participant shirts are men's and women's (new for 2016!) cut tech t-shirts. Unlike cotton blend shirts, they will not shrink when washed. Note: t-shirts are not included for the Doggie Dash.
You are more than welcome to walk in any of our events. However we do have a 3.5 hour course time limit our half marathon and 1 hour time limit for our Coastal 5K. Participants must maintain a minimum pace of 16 minutes per mile.
The 5Kers receive the same amenities as the half marathoners for the most part. Both will receive event t-shirts as well as finisher medals however the half marathon medal is a bit larger.
We do not allow strollers in the half marathon. Jogging strollers are, however, permitted in the 5K, but you must start at the back of the last wave for the safety of the child as well as the other participants.
Yes, however we ask that you run with the volume at a low level so you can still hear any directions given to you along the course.
You are more than welcome to upgrade from the 5K to the half marathon as long as there is space available and you have paid the difference in price. Category changes can be made online via logging into your Active.com account. Please note, the deadline to make any category changes is one month prior to race day.
We can certainly switch you from the half marathon to the 5K. Please note we do not refund for the difference in price. Category changes can be made online via logging into your Active.com account. Please note, the deadline to make any category changes is one month prior to race day.
I found a discount code after I registered. Can I get a refund?
