Registration Questions

The Lake Monona 20KM Run and 5KM Run/Walk is not able to offer refunds for any reason, as we offer all runners the opportunity to transfer their registration to another person or event, change their distance or defer to next year. (This includes those who experience illness, injury or any other condition that may prevent them from participating in the event.)

 


DISTANCE CHANGES

On or before Friday, April 20 at 12pm (CT):

  • When changing to a different event, the registrant will automatically pay the difference between the events, if the event they are changing to is more expensive.
  • No refunds if the registrant is changing to a less expensive event.

Friday, April 20 12:01pm (CT) through Friday, May 4 11:59pm (CT):
