If you signed up and can no longer run
If a runner is unable to participate in the event, it is the runner’s responsibility to notify the stage leader. If they are the stage leader you are to notify the state captain so a replacement runner can be assigned. There will be no refund of the stage entrance fee and donations collected.
You may transfer your registration from one runner to another due to the original runner not being able to participate any longer. It is also permitted to transfer to a different stage anywhere along the relay. All original sponsored donations will remain with the original runner.
