Participants can transfer their race entry to someone else up until 5pm Thursday 25th October 2018. No transfers will be accepted after this date.

Note: It is not permitted to transfer your race entry to someone else other than through this process, including on Race Day. It is very important for health and safety reasons for us to know the correct identity of every athlete on course, and accordingly it is strictly prohibited to race under another person's race bib. Any athletes caught doing this will be disqualified and may be prevented from entering future events.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged to the withdrawing athlete.
  • It is not possible to transfer your entry to someone else to a different distance event (i.e. Full Marathon to Half Marathon).
  • All shuttle bus, ferry tickets and Merchandise are non-transferable and non-refundable.  The person purchasing the transferred entry will need to purchase new transport tickets at the time of the online transfer.
  • To transfer an entry to someone else the initial registrant goes to and logs in using their account, finds the registration they wish to transfer and clicks the link ‘Transfer the registration to another athlete’, and then follows the necessary steps. Please note: the receiving athlete will need to pay for the entry fee at the current price in order for the transfer to process, then the original athlete will be refunded their entry fee less the $25.00 transfer fee. 

As stated in the Event Waiver, under no circumstance are you permitted to give your bib to another person. The safety of our athletes is paramount, therefore we need to ensure we have correct details of all our runners on course.


Transfers between race distances can be made online up until midnight 21 October 2018, or until the race is sold out. After this date, if you wish to transfer, this must be done in person at Athlete Check-in during race week (subject to availability).

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged for all transfers between distances.
  • Please be aware that you cannot transfer to a sold out event.
  • If you decide to upgrade your event to a longer distance and space is available, you will need to pay the difference in entry fees.
  • If you decide to downgrade your event to a shorter distance and space is available, unfortunately we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

If you would like to transfer between race distances prior to midnight Sunday 21 October 2018, please log in to your My Events Portal and select Change Event Category.
