New for 2017: Registration Insurance

Protect yourself from injuries or "life just happening." For 2017, runners who opt for our third-party registration insurance are eligible to recoup your registration $$! Read full policy, here.

Otherwise, without insurance, because we buy and pay for your Official Race Swag and Amenities well before Race Week, refunds or deferrals are not possible. Bib transfers are allowed, but only after we reach sellout status, which most likely means only in-person at Race Expo, March 30 and 31 at Keeneland.
