GB Cancellation Statement (COVID-19)

The 2020 Greenbrier Half Marathon Cancellation Statement Regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Thursday, March 19, 2020

After careful consideration and in order to adhere to the CDC’s guidelines to limit gatherings of over 50 people, the Greenbrier Half Marathon scheduled for May 9, 2020 has been cancelled

We did not make this decision lightly. The Greenbrier Half Marathon is a destination race for many runners. By making this decision in a timely manner, we aim to give our runners the opportunity to rearrange any travel plans associated with this race while also honoring the importance of health in our communities. Room reservations made by runners are still reserved. If you need to cancel or modify your reservation, please contact the Greenbrier Resort directly at (855)453-4858.

You are undoubtedly disappointed. But your training and preparation is not lost. A finish line with cheering friends, family and fans is still just ahead. The Greenbrier Half Marathon is empowering you to decide when and where that finish line will be.

Within a week you will receive an email with a credit equal to 100% of the amount you paid to register for the 2020 Greenbrier Half Marathon.

Have Questions? Check below for answers.

Can I receive a refund instead of race credit?

No, our refund policy still stands.

Why can't I get a refund?

Your entry fee supports the costs associated with producing the race. Those costs are incurred over the weeks and months leading up to the race. In other words, we’ve spent your money on all of the things that go into producing the 2020 Greenbrier Half Marathon, including your shirts that you will have an opportunity to have mailed to you for a shipping and handling fee. That being said, we cannot refund you money that has already been spent.

Don't you have to refund my fee since the race isn't taking place?

No, when all runners registered, each individual acknowledged and agreed to the following:

“Fee Refunds: I understand that all fees and associated costs (including optional product purchases, spectator tickets, and donations), paid in registration for this Event are not refundable for any reason under any circumstances, including but not limited to injury, a scheduling conflict, and/or event cancellation.”

How is race credit different from a refund?

Race credit is connected to your email address that was used when you registered. This credit can be used towards any of our races within our portfolio.

Will you mail out race shirts?

Yes, for a shipping and handling fee. We will keep you informed of the details about requesting your shirts to be mailed via our website, social media and email.
