Early entrants who register by December 20, 2021 are eligible for refunds of entry fees or may defer to another upcoming race (please see our schedule of races). To receive a refund, transfer or credit, you must register by December 20, 2021 for the Shamrock Distance Classic and notify the race director by e-mail (not Facebook) at least 3 weeks before the race or by February 27, 2022.  This date is when we order your bib and start preparing your packet for delivery by mail.

There are no refunds for cancellations due to an Act of God, such as severe weather, fires or COVID. Refunds, deferrals, or transfers are NOT available if you fail to show up for the race.

All refunds will be issued by check after the last race of our series, the Shamrock Distance Classic, on or about April 1, 2022. Refunds do not include processing fees charged by Active.com.

Florida Shamrock Halfathon & 5K Runners
“You have made this my favorite half marathon over the years. It just keeps getting better and better! The price is right and I love the course. There are a number of places on the course where family members can take pictures and cheer you on. It’s impossible to go off course. Keep up the good work! ”
– Alan Meyer, Former President of the Bradenton (FL) Runners Club
