Use the deferment process to transfer to next year's event.
IMPORTANT: This is the ONLY authorized way to transfer your entry to another person. Bib numbers are NON-transferable. The selling and/or giving away of a St. George Marathon bib number is not allowed and will result in the disqualification of both the original bib owner and the runner using the bib number. Both runners will be prohibited from participating in the St. George Marathon for a minimum of two years.
To transfer your entry, log into your Participant account. Once logged in, select the ‘Transfer Request’ button on the dashboard screen and follow the prompts.

How to Switch, Transfer, or Defer 2021 Marathon Registration
[How To Guide]
Refunds: Entry fees are non-refundable. Unless those who are on active military duty and are deployed for service (a copy of deployment orders is required).
MARATHON LOTTERY: Does not apply. Registration is first-come-first-serve till our caps are met.
It is the primary goal of the St. George Marathon to ensure a safe event for all involved. We will not expose participants or the community as a whole to undue risk as a result of staging our event. There may be times when we feel it is unsafe to continue with the race. While we recognize the aspirations and commitment of those that have entered the race we will make decisions about the race based on the safety of our as a whole. Furthermore, if the community resources are threatened we will act to protect them from unnecessary stress.
Specifically, when weather or other physical conditions present a danger to participants as a whole, we will maintain the right to cancel the race. Less threatening conditions could result in an alteration of the course or race length to promote a more safe result for the participants. These conditions will be recognized as “an act of God” and will not result in the refunding of race entry fees or future race credits. The staging of a race of this magnitude results in substantial expense prior to the actual race itself. Thus, in the event of a forced cancellation of the event, it is very likely that the financial impact on the race would not be any different than if the race was held without compromise.
Severe thunderstorms with the threat of lightning or severe heat that are forecasted to continue throughout the day of the event may result in cancellation of the event for all participants.
In the event that a cancellation or alteration will take place, St. George Marathon will advise participants through various traditional and non-traditional media channels on a timely basis.
There will be NO REFUNDS for cancellations on any part. This policy will take IMMEDIATE effect upon the completion of your registration.

10 Year Club members will receive a guaranteed entry into the St. George Marathon as long as you complete your online registration by May 31st, regardless of the cap of 4000 Marathon runners being reached prior to that date. You will be able to register with the discounted price determined by the number of years you have completed the St. George Marathon. This option is only available for the full marathon distance. This club will only continue for the full distance marathon as a way to celebrate your great accomplishment and dedication to St. George Marathon!

At this time if your name does not appear on the list please email email@example.com with proof of registration and payment.
FUTURE MARATHON DATES:
In early 1989, SGI, a St. George company involved in bringing tourism to St. George became aware of a city in Japan that was starting a marathon similar to the one being staged in St. George. SGI approached Kent Perkins, the Director of the St. George Marathon at that time, about the idea of exchanging ideas and information between the two cities concerning their respective marathons. Kent Perkins liked the idea and in summer of 1989, he flew to Ibigawa, Japan to lay the groundwork for what has become a very successful exchange program. Later that year, during the St. George Marathon, representatives from the Ibigawa Marathon came to St. George as guests and participants. Later, in November of that year, Bob Nicholson (Director of Community Development for the City of St. George) flew to Ibigawa as the first official delegate from St. George to the Ibigawa marathon. Since that time the two cities have exchanged delegations and event winners in an effort to enhance each marathon and to broaden the scope of understanding between countries and cultures. Both marathons have built reputations for their excellence and growth. The exchange program has played a part in the success of both marathons and new ideas are fostered as these two marathons grow and mature. Currently, St. George sends the overall male and female winners, masters division winners, and a local runner to Japan for a week-long stay with Japanese host families. This award for winners demonstrates the uniqueness of the St. George Marathon.
