New Calculation on Participant Changes

In the past when a participant moved from one event to another, and also changed their Add-Ons, we treated everything as a single transaction.

Conditional Refunds

We have released a new participant management feature that will allow participants to receive a refund when someone else takes their place.

Refund “Issued” Information Added

Since we review all refunds before issuing them, there can be a delay from the time a participant or a race director initiates a refund until it is actually processed. We have added information to the individual registration information at the bottom of the page: As well as the Refund Report: Note that due to... Continue Reading →
