TRANSFER YOUR ENTRY TO SOMEONE ELSE

Participants can transfer their race entry to someone else up until midnight Friday 13th October 2017. 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 and ferry tickets 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 myevents.active.com and logs in using their active.com 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 in order for the transfer to process, then the original athlete will be refunded their entry fee less the $25.00 transfer fee. 

TRANSFER YOUR ENTRY TO A DIFFERENT EVENT DISTANCE

Participants can request to transfer their entry between different race distances until registrations close or until the race is sold out. Once the race distance is sold out and entries have closed to that event, no transfers will be accepted.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged for all transfers between race distances.
  • 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 event and space is available, unfortunately we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

Finish Line Hospitality

If you're running the ASB Auckland Marathon as a group or team (corporate, school, family or friends), booking a site at our Victoria Park finish line is a great way to recover, relax and celebrate your efforts together. 

Your team captain can book a Victoria Park site online, and then choose from a range of add-on options including furniture, catering and power from our preferred suppliers. 

If you would like further information about booking a site or marquee, please contact us and we will do our very best to help you. Please be aware that the nature of the Victoria Park Village space means that sites are limited and we cannot guarantee that sites will remain available. We recommend that you book well in advance to avoid missing out. Please be aware that sites and marquees are ‘private’ areas and therefore cannot be used as a commercial venue. This is due to the contractual agreements of the Auckland Marathons official sponsors whom have purchased the right to be present in Victoria Park.

Both sites and marquees are available through our online booking system. Once you have read our Terms & Conditions you may proceed to booking.

For invoice payment options please email aucklandmarathon@ironman.com.
