What if I have $0 of credit?

If you have $0 of credit this most likely means you received a comped entry into the 2020 Tar Heel 10 Miler through the use of credit or a discount code. Our team will reach out to you for more steps on how to get the same entry you received last year within a few days.

What if I used one email for multiple registrations?

All of the credit for each registration will be lumped onto the one email address, used at registration. You can choose how to use that credit and discuss with your other registrant on how they would like to use the credit.

What do I do if my email address has changed since I registered?

If you need to change your email address, please reach out to us at info@tarheel10miler.com and we will make that change for you.

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.”

Will you mail out shirts and medals?

We will not mail out shirts or medals. We will host a packet pick-up at a future date and location. Friends or family can pick-up your shirt and medal for you on the future date and location.
