Craft Beer Half Marathon & 5 Miler

Sun October 3, 2021 Charlotte, NC 28262 US Directions
Waitlist - Deferral - Switching - Refunds


In the event that the race/s sell out…which they typically do, you can always sign up to be on the waitlist.  This means, if someone defers or switches races, a slot will open up.  You will have 24 hours to claim your spot or it will move on to the next person in line.

Deferral Policy

You may only defer to and from the same event: 2020 Craft Beer Half Marathon to 2021 Craft Beer Half Marathon or the 2020 Craft Beer 5 Miler to the 2021 Craft Beer 5 Miler. Refunds will not be issued under any circumstances. You will only be able to defer once and only for the following year. i.e. 2020 can defer to 2021 but not 2022.  If the race sells out (which it normal does) and you do not claim your deferral in time, you will not be able to participate in the race.  Please claim your deferral as soon as possible.

Deferral Fees:
Half Marathon – $0
5 Miler - $0

You can now claim your 2020 deferred registration.  The defer option can be found by logging on to RunSignUp, navigating to the following:

Profile  > Deferrals > Complete Deferral > Start Transfer

Here is the help guide for participants to claim your deferral>>

As a reminder from our deferral policy, you will only be allowed to defer once.  You will not be able to defer your 2021 registration to 2022.  You have the option to sign up to run in-person or run virtually.  You will be able to transfer back and forth between in-person and virtual at no additional cost up until the cut off date.

Good luck and please let us know if you still need help.  We are trying to answer questions as soon as we can, so we appreciate you patience.

Event Transfer Policy

Since the Half Marathoners get additional swag that is pre-ordered, you may only switch from the Half Marathon to the 5 Miler.  You will not be able to switch from the 5 Miler or Virtual Runner to the Half Marathon.  If you switch from the Half Marathon to the 5 Miler you will not receive a refund for the difference in pricing.

The deadline to transfer is October 1st at 11:59 pm
