Register Now

Registration fees are non-refundable, non-transferable and are not tax-deductible. Once your registration has been received and accepted, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate.

If you registered and are unable to participate in the race, please e-mail info@lakesammamishhalf.com and include your name, address and shirt size. Running shirts will be mailed approximately 4-6 weeks after the event.

Since the vast majority of race costs are incurred prior to a race and are non-refundable, we do not issue refunds for races.

Race Deferrals

For longer races (half marathon and longer), you can defer before Wednesday of race week. If you defer your entry two weeks or more prior to the race, the fee is $30 per registered participant. If you defer after that, the fee is $50.

Race Cancellation/Reschedule Policy

  • We will make every effort to communicate clearly and promptly with those signed up for the race. We will do so via email and Facebook posts. We will strive to make a decision as early as possible, while still balancing that against the need to wait for more or clearer information.
  • RESCHEDULED RACE: In the event that a race cannot be held on the scheduled date, our first preference is to reschedule the race to an alternate date. This won’t always be possible, but whenever possible, that is what we will do. Please note that when a race is rescheduled, no refunds will be given. When a race is rescheduled, we will offer participants that cannot make it to the new race date two options:
    • Have your race medal, shirt, bib and any other merchandise that you have purchased shipped out to you. This option will only be available to US residents due to the difficulties and time delay of shipping internationally. There is no cost for this option – shirts, medals and bibs will be mailed out approximately 4-6 weeks after the event.
    • Transfer your entry to Lake Washington Half that same year. This costs $15, plus any difference in what you paid for the rescheduled race entry fee and the registration price at that time for the race that you’re transferring into.
  • CANCELLED RACE: When a race must be cancelled outright and cannot be rescheduled, no refunds will be given for race entry fees. You can receive a refund for any merchandise that you purchased for the race. Registered participants will have two options:
    • Have your race medal, shirt, bib and any other merchandise that you have purchased shipped out to you. This option will only be available to US residents due to the difficulties and time delay of shipping internationally. There is no cost for this option – shirts, medals and bibs will be mailed out approximately 4-6 weeks after the event.
    • Transfer your entry to Lake Washington Half that same year; this cost is $15.
