Starting at noon Eastern on June 12, Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) participants who are no longer able to compete in the 38th MCM on Sunday, Oct. 27 have an opportunity to transfer their entry to another runner through the MCM's Transfer Program. Registered MCM runners must go to www.marinemarathon.com to complete the online transfer. There they will receive an email including a unique code, password and hyperlink to the online transfer registration form. The runner will then forward this information to the individual seeking to register. Many runners looking for transfer partners can be found om the MCM Facebook page.
The transfers must take place by August 30, 2013 and transfers cannot be canceled. Runners who complete the online transfer will not receive a refund for the registration fee they previously paid in March. The new runner must pay $30.00 and must complete their registration by September 4th.
Those currently registered for the 38th MCM are eligible to transfer their participation to the MCM10K, the 6.2 mile event held in conjunction with "The People's Marathon."
