Transfers

For the health and safety of all participants, it is important to have accurate information of actual participants and especially during emergency situations.  Only official transfers during the transfer period will be allowed.  A person who runs under someone else’s bib or doesn’t wear a bib will be disqualified and may face suspension from future Bay Races.

Transfer period closes at 11:59pm on March 10, 2024.

If you transfer your entry to someone else, you do not receive any of the race swag. The transfer recipient will receive the race swag.

If you transfer from one race category to another race category, you will receive the race swag of the new race category. E.g. If you transfer from the Hammer Hybrid to the 15K, you will receive a long-sleeved race shirt and a 15K medal. You would not receive the Hammer Jacket or the Hammer medal. If you upgrade, the difference will be owing but if you downgrade, there is no credit.

To transfer to another person:

  • Log into your Race Roster account and Bay Race profile
  • Click on the transfer link near the middle top of your page
  • Click Transfer to Another Person
  • Enter the transfer recipient’s email address and proceed from there
  • Transfer recipient will receive an email and will need to complete participant info and pay $15+tax+fees to complete the transfer
  • Once the transfer is complete, the original registrant is removed from the system and the transfer recipient is now registered

To transfer to another sub-event (race category):

  • Log into your Race Roster account and Bay Race profile
  • Click on the transfer link near the middle top of your page
  • Click on Transfer to Another Sub-Event
  • Choose the race category you wish to move to and proceed from there
  • Please note, if you downgrade to a category of lesser value, there is no credit. If you upgrade to a category of greater value, the balance is owing.

Transfer period closes at 11:59pm on March 10, 2024.

Please note the Around The Bay Road Race is not responsible for private transactions on transfers and will not be involved in transfer disputes.
