2021 Cancellation Policy

If the Bismarck Marathon cancels due to COVID-19 concerns, the following options will be available to registered runners.

  1. Defer Registration to 2022: This option will lock in your 2021 price and prevent you from having to pay another registration fee next year. In addition, the coveted 40th Anniversary Swag will be awarded to all registered runners in our 2022 celebration.
  2. Offer Registration as a Charitable Donation: If this option is selected, runners may be able to claim the registration price as a donation on their income tax returns. The Bismarck Marathon is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In 2019 we donated a record $40,000 to local non-profits, your donation would go directly to these organizations to help them during this difficult time.
  3. Registration Refund: Runners who wish to receive a refund will be refunded the total amount of their registration (not including processing fees).
