Refund Policy for Oktoberfest Half Marathon & 5k

The Oktoberfest Half Marathon & 5k and Kick It Event Management has a NO REFUND policy

  • There are no refunds for event cancelation due to severe weather, weather emergency, hurricane warning, winter storm warning or flooding as decided upon by the race directors. These decisions are made for the safety of our participants, volunteers and the need for our first responders to be used to help with the weather emergency. Signing this waiver is your agreement that there are no refunds for weather emergency cancelations.
  • There are no refunds if you’ve registered for this event “by mistake”. Please read through the location and date of the event before registering. You can transfer to a Virtual Runner if you can’t join us race day.
  • There are no refunds due to injury or illness. Please add on the RegShield insurance for reimbursements due to injury or illness as per their guidelines.
  • The Race Roster registration platform does allow you to add on RegShield if you would like insurance on your registration for a nominal fee. We are not responsible for the acceptance or denial of any claim. Please read through their guidelines carefully.
