For Runaway Noosa Marathon and associated events, upon confirmation of a refund request, athletes may be eligible for a partial refund of their entry fee.

  • Any requests received up to 12 weeks prior to the event (1 March 2019 5pm) will be eligible for a 50% refund of event entry fee paid
  • Any requests received up to 6 weeks prior to the event (12 April 2019 5pm) will be eligible for a 25% refund of the event entry fee paid

Any additional purchases (including but not limited to) ACTIVE Fees, FinisherPix Fees paid at the time of entry are non-refundable at any time.

Your refund will be processed within 14 working days onto the credit card you used to register for this event.  If your credit card has expired or if your credit card has been cancelled, your refund may take up to 30 business days to be processed. Please forward your nominated bank account details to runawaynoosa@ironman.com. or alternatively contact our office on 1300 761 384 to discuss.

Transfer your entry to someone else

Participants can transfer their race entry to someone else up until 5pm Sunday 19 May 2019. No transfers will be accepted after this date.

Note: It is not permitted to transfer your race entry to someone else other than through this process, including on Race Day. It is very important for health and safety reasons for us to know the correct identity of every athlete on course, and accordingly it is strictly prohibited to race under another person's race bib. Any athletes caught doing this will be disqualified and may be prevented from entering future events.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged to the withdrawing athlete.
  • It is not possible to transfer your entry to someone else to a different distance event (i.e. Full Marathon to Half Marathon).

To transfer an entry to someone else 

The initial registrant goes to myevents.active.com and logs in using their active.com account, finds the registration they wish to transfer and clicks the link ‘Transfer the registration to another athlete’, and then follows the necessary steps. Please note: the receiving athlete will need to pay for the current entry fee in order for the transfer to process, then the original athlete will be refunded their entry fee less the $25.00 transfer fee.


Transfer your entry to a different event distance

Participants can request to transfer their entry between different race distances until the race is sold out. Once the race distance is sold out and entries have closed to that event, no transfers will be accepted.

Conditions of transfer:

  • If you decide to upgrade your event to a longer distance and space is available, you will need to pay the difference in entry fees.
  • If you decide to downgrade your event to a shorter distance event and space is available, unfortunately we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

If you would like to transfer between race distances please email us at runawaynoosa@ironman.com prior to Sunday 19 May 2019 midnight, after this date please see Runaway Noosa Marathon Staff at the Help Desk at Check-in, Friday 24 May 2019 2:00pm-7:00pm or Saturday 25 May 2019 4:45am - 9:15am.
