After registering, some runners are unable to participate in the Historic Half events. These runners may opt to transfer their entry to a non-registered runner through the Historic Half Transfer Program. Additionally, the transfer program offers registered runners the opportunity to switch into between Historic Half Weekend events or to a shorter distance.
Runner-to-Runner: Devil Dog Double, Historic Half and Semper 5ive registered runners may transfer an entry to a non-registered runner for a $25 fee.
Event-to-Event: Those Devil Dog and Historic Half runners not up to completing distance challenge but still wish to #RunWithTheMarines may opt to transfer their entry for a spot in a shorter distance event.
Devil Dog runners may transfer to the Half or the 5ive. Historic Half participants may transfer to the Semper 5ive or Devil Dog. Semper 5ive participants may transfer to the Historic Half or Devil Dog. All transfers will have a $25 fee. Additionally, participants transferring to a longer distance event will be responsible for the difference in fees.
Only runners currently registered for the Devil Dog, Historic Half or Semper 5ive may transfer an entry. Runners are required to find transfer partners, often brokered on the MCM Facebook page. The MCM does not participate in this part of the process. When transferring an entry, runners do not receive a refund on registration fees from the MCM. Any reimbursement of registration fees must be coordinated directly between the transferring runners.
- A $25 transfer fee will be charged during this online process for any transfer transaction.
- Participants transfering to a longer distance event will be responsible to pay the difference in fees.
- Participants who choose to transfer to a shorter distance event will not be refunded the difference of fees.
