Are transfers allowed?
This depends on whether the organizers for your event are allowing transfers. We'll cover how to find this information along with the best person to contact if you have more questions.
Before we get started, let's just clarify what we mean by transfers. Transfer = transferring your registration to someone else so that they can legitimately participate in the event instead of you. For changing to a different distance within the event, see Can I Change My Race Distance?
Does my event allow transfers?
Let's find out! Here's how:
Visit the Manage Registration page (you can also find this link by going to www.imATHLETE.com and clicking the link under the search bar that says "Already registered for an event? Click here to edit")
Enter your confirmation code (need to find it?)
See the manage registration options that are available.
If one of them says Transfer your Registration, then yes, it's your lucky day! Click the Go button and follow the instructions.
If you do not see that option, it means transfers are not currently available for your event.
I have more questions about transfers
The best people to reach out to regarding registration transfers will be the event organizers. They'll be able to fill you in on all the details and answer more specific questions (they are the ones who set the event policies, after all). Check out this article to learn how to quickly find their contact information.
Why can't imATHLETE just do it for me anyway?
Simply put, we do not have the authority to approve transfers.
imATHLETE is a registration platform, which means we do not actually organize any of the events here or set any event policies. As such, we cannot make policy decisions on behalf of the event organizers.
Rest assured, it's nothing personal!
