WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — The Air Force Marathon has officially sold out all races and organizers have announced details for the transfer program.
“The transfer program is the only official way for runners to give their bib to another runner,” said Race Director Rob Aguiar.
The transfer program opened on July 21 and will run through July 31. Runners who wish to transfer their bib will be able to register on the AF Marathon website and will be given a special code. That code will allow another non-registered runner to register under that person’s bib.
Costs for the transfer program vary for each race and charges will apply to the person transferring in to a race. This is the only official way to transfer a bib.
“Running a race without the correctly registered bib is against race rules,” said Aguiar. “It’s important for safety and health reasons that we know who is running our course.”
Race Transfer program processing fee is $40 for the full marathon, $30 for half marathon, $20 for 10K and $10 for 5K.
The Air Force Marathon, presented by Northrop Grumman, USAA and Boeing, will be Saturday, Sept. 20. The Sports & Fitness Expo is held at Wright State University’s Nutter Center and will be Thursday, Sept. 18, and Friday, Sept. 19. The event will also feature a Gourmet Pasta Dinner and Breakfast of Champions on Friday.
