FOR THOSE DEFERRING TO THE NOVEMBER 10, 2019 MONTEREY BAY HALF MARATHON
Entrants in the cancelled 2018 Monterey Bay Marathon who chose to defer their entry to 2019 were sent an email on January 25. For those who didn’t receive that email, the text from it is shown below.
2019 Deferral Instructions:
On February 1, 2019, 2018 entrants deferring to 2019 will be emailed a private registration link for the November 10, 2019 Monterey Bay Half Marathon. There is no entry fee associated with this race entry. We ask that everyone register by February 28 so we will know how many spots are left for new registrants. (Note that registration protection (Booking Protect) will not be available for purchase due to the $0 entry fee.)
If you wish to register for the Ocean View Challenge in 2019, a special entry category that provides a unique medal for those who run the Saturday 5K and the Sunday Half Marathon, you will need to pay the $30 entry fee for the 5K portion of the Challenge. Last year’s Pacific Grove Lighthouse 5K, held the Saturday before the half marathon, was not affected by the Monterey Bay Half Marathon race cancellation and 5K entries were not deferred.
During registration, you will also have the opportunity to purchase merchandise that benefits California fire relief efforts or make an optional donation to the North Valley Community Foundation for fire relief.
If you do not receive the email with the registration link by 5 PM Pacific Time on February 1, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check your SPAM, junk mail or all mail folders.
If you no longer plan on deferring your entry or would like to switch to a different option, please contact email@example.com.
