Event FAQ

Can I get a refund if I cannot participate?

No refunds will be issued

This is a rain or shine event and a portion of all proceeds benefit Memorial Park Conservancy and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department as well as numerous other area nonprofits.

Options available to those who cannot participate:
1. Defer your race entry until next year (see relevant FAQ item) by October 11, 2020

2. Transfer your bib to someone else (see relevant FAQ item) by October 11, 2020

3. Convert registration fee as a tax deductible charitable donation to the organizing 501(c)(3). Contact info@houstonhalf.com for more information on this choice.

Please note: all donors must be removed from the participant list and must not claim a bib, shirt, or medal to meet the requirements of a charitable donation. If a donation is requested after packet pick-up begins, the assigned bib must be collected by race registration coordinator before the donation will be accepted. Requests for charitable donations will not be accepted on or after race day.

A registration code will be sent when registration opens next year.

How do I get a copy of my registration receipt?

You can send yourself a copy of your registration receipt using the Race Roster functionality after logging into your account.

Simply follow the instructions provided here.

 

How do I register if I deferred in 2019?

All deferred participants from 2019 should have received a coupon code by email in February 2020. If you officially deferred last year and did not receive your code by email, please contact us directly at info@houstonhalf.com. The coupon will reduce the current Houston Half Marathon registration fee to a flat deferral rate of $35.

What is the age limit for Half & 10K?

Age limits are based on parental discretion, meaning both the minor(s) in question have chosen to complete the activity and the parent or guardian consents to stay with the child the entire time while on the course. We have therefore set age limits on the registration site to ensure parental consent is provided before entering minors into either event. If you experience any difficulty with registering a minor for the course, please reach out to the Houston Half & 10K Help Desk at info@houstonhalf.com.

How can I make a claim on my event insurance?

If you selected to pay for the event insurance option during registration, you will need to follow up directly with the insurance company providing that benefit.  The Houston Half Marathon & 10K does not manage claims.

Terms and conditions/contact information for the policy can be found through the following links:
