Canmore FAQ

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?  Or get a refund? 
Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable to following years.  However you can sell your entry to another athlete up until two weeks prior to race day.   No changes after this date will be excepted.  You will be responsible for making sure we have the updated contact information of the person who is replacing you.  Note: after August 1st, T- shirts are ordered and therefore if you sell your bib to someone else he/she may not receive a shirt in the appropriate size.  

Please email registration@blitzevents.ca to notify us of any changes to the registration.  
NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES so please do not email the race directors asking for one.
