We have a cancellation policy for the 2018 Popular® Brooklyn Half. Entrants (except as noted below) who cancel their 2018 race entry by following the guidelines and instructions below will be eligible for guaranteed entry to the 2019 Popular® Brooklyn Half.
You will still need to claim your entry in 2019; you are not automatically placed in the race. In order to claim your guaranteed entry, you must submit and pay the 2019 entry fees during the guaranteed entrant application window (dates TBD). You are not automatically entered in the race.
Runners who earn guaranteed entry to the 2019 race through this method will be able to cancel their entry again in 2019, but they will not be eligible for guaranteed entry to the 2020 race.
All race entry fees are non-refundable. Once you have cancelled, you cannot be reinstated into the 2018 Popular® Brooklyn Half.
You may not give or sell your number to another person. Please read our policies regarding race numbers in our Rules of Competition.
