Ottawa Race Weekend has a policy of no race entry transfers. Meaning if you register early, you run the risk (har har) of having to eat your entry if you can't run.
Yesterday, Race Weekend announced that they would allow race entry transfers for a two-week period! Hooray! I don't think this was highly advertised, so I figured I should post it here.
I'll get most of my money back. It's too bad I already downgraded from the half marathon to the 10K. Both distances are sold out, but the half entries are in much higher demand. Still, it feels good to know that I'll be able to recoup some of the money.
