  • To request a transfer from one race distance to another, athletes must log into their MyEvents account and select Change Category on or before 16 November 2022. After this date, such requests can only be made at the Help Desk at Athlete Check-in.
  • Transferring to a greater distance: Where an athlete requests to transfer to a greater distance and space is available, the athlete is required to pay the difference in entry fees between the two distances.
  • Transferring to a shorter distance: Where an athlete requests to transfer to a shorter distance event and space is available, the difference in entry fees will not be refunded.

**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 athletes on course.
