Please note: If you do not change your race distance either online or in person with a Resort Races Collection staff member prior to the race start, you will be disqualified from the event.
We do not charge an administrative fee to change your distance. There is no charge to go down in distance, but if you choose a longer distance, you will need to pay the difference between the distances.
What is your refund policy?
The Greenbrier Half Marathon reserves the right to reject any entry. Also, we adhere to the standard running industry policy. All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. This is noted on our registration application and when you register for our events you must agree to this policy. You may not give or sell your number to another individual – if you do, this will result in your disqualification as well as the runner who uses your race number. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected business or family emergency, pregnancy, etc. There are no exceptions!
Can I transfer my registration to another person?

What is your weather policy?
We will do all we can to make sure The Greenbrier Half Marathon, 10K and 5K are produced as planned, but runner safety is always our top priority.

This will be based on a prudent decision made on race weekend or race day by Race Officials and local law enforcement officials.
If the race is cancelled due to inclement weather there will be neither refunds nor transfers. This position is consistent with USA Track & Field recommendations and with the protocol of sharing the risks associated with the sport of running.
