Refund Policy

In the unfortunate circumstances that a competitor must withdraw from an event in the Mackenzie Half Marathon 2024, the following Policy applies:           

  • Prior to 1 April 2024, you will receive a refund of 75% of your entry fee or transfer to the 2025 event.

  • 1 April to 30 April 2024, you will receive a refund of 50% of your entry fee or transfer to the 2025 event.

You will be able to transfer to a shorter distance up to 31 May 2024 with a $10 Administration Fee. There will be no partial refunds provided for the shorter distance.

Please do not ask after 1 June 2024 for refunds or transfers, as the above Policy will be adhered to and it is always tough saying no to these requests. 

Should the event have to be cancelled due to Force of Nature, Disease or Pandemic, there will be no refund of entry fees, whether this is before or after any of the Refund or Transfer dates.
