Refund/Transfer Information

The Spring Lake 5 & Kid's race have a no refund policy.  We do allow transfers – If you are a registered runner, and find that you cannot make the run, the Spring Lake Five has a transfer policy in place; please send an email to SPRINGLAKE5@SPRINGLAKE5.ORG requesting transfer information. Transfer opportunities will be limited.

Do you have a waiting list?

Once the limit of general registration entries is reached, the race will be closed for registration.

Sorry - NO -  we do not keep a transfer listing or waiting list, just about everyone who wants to transfer knows someone who wants to get in.

Thanks to The Friends of The Spring Lake 5, a limited number of entries will be available through charitable organizations, posted on the Charity Partners page.
