Registration Policy


  • There are NO refunds for Rip It races.

  • Bib transfers to non-registered people are NOT permitted.

  • Registrations are not transferable to other Rip It races. 

  • Participants may elect to defer their entry to the following year's race (see below).
  • Race organizers reserve the right to delay or cancel a race due to extreme weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. In the case of this, no refunds will be permitted. 


Defer Rules

  • Deferrals do not carry over beyond the following year’s race.

  • Defer entries must be used for the same race and can not be used for any other race the following year.

  • Deferred entries cannot be transferred to other non-registered people.

  • Should you chose not to use your defer entry the following year, it will not be refunded.

  • If the race does not take place the following year, you will receive a refund for the defer fee. 

  • For triathlons, duathlons, aquabike and swimrun - the deferral fee covers the race entry fee only. USAT one-day passes and registration processing fees are not included in your credit.

  • A one-time defer fee of $20 applies to individual and relay registrations.  

  • Defers may be processed up until 11:59 PM the night before the race. 


Why is there a fee to defer my entry to the 2023 race? Registration money is spent on items associated with the current year’s race such as shirts, finisher medals, police fees and more. Often this money is spent months before race day. The defer fee covers these expenses for your 2023 race entry.  

When the following year race registration opens, deferral athletes will receive a unique entry code (by email) that can be used to register for the race.
