Same Athlete Switches within a race (Sprint to Olympic)

Athletes are allowed to switch to a different race distance within the same race day.  Most race days are going to have multiple races within the race (Sprint, Olympic, Duathlon, Aquabike, 5K, 10K, 13.1 etc.)  An athlete may complete this transfer through their confirmation email from Active.  There will be a $9 fee charged to the athlete’s account! This transfer must be complete by the Thursday before the race by 11:59PM.

 

Athlete Transfers their registration to another person (Mike Jones to Sarah Jones)

Athletes are allowed to transfer their registration to another athlete before race day.  An athlete may complete this transfer through their confirmation email from Active.  There will be a $9 fee charged to the athlete’s account! This transfer must be complete by the Thursday at 11:59 PM before the race.

 

Same Athlete Switch from One Race to Another  (Muncie May to Muncie June)

An athlete may transfer a registration from one race to another.  The athlete must email Jason Tucker at jtucker@americamultisport.com to inform him of the desired switch.  This must be completed by 5PM on Wednesday of the week of the earliest race in the desired switch.  A code will be given to the athlete for 80% of the cost of race fee for the race being switched into.  The race must be the same type of race or the athlete will have to pay the price difference. The athlete will not be refunded the fee of the race they originally registered for and be cancelled from the original race.  All fees from Active and USA Triathlon are not under the control of America Multi-Sport and are non-refundable.

Thanks for helping me!

I just wanted to extend a special thanks to you for helping me so much with my swimming.  You had a tall task in front of you!  You never gave up on me and encouraged me to keep going.  If it weren't for your help and encouragement I never would have finished my first triathlon!  Thanks and please keep in touch!
