Refund Policy


The marathon running industry's policy is that all entry fees and ancillary purchases are non-refundable and non-transferable under any and all circumstances. However, we’re living though a global pandemic which has significantly impacted all of us to an extent that no one could ever have imagined. For this reason we have decided to review our standard cancellation policy allowing free deferrals to 2021 or 2022 (including add-ons) and to provide new virtual options to be a positive light in these difficult times.




What is included with the registration fee?


Included in the registration fee is your virtual race entry, our signature performance shirt, a finisher medal and for the first 1000 runners a Run Malibu buff (neck cover). Stay tuned for plenty of sponsor prizes and offers, giveaways, training tips, Q&As and live feeds.




When and Where can I run/walk?


The VRT Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk event will take place wherever you like, at whatever time is convenient, between the 7th and 8th November.




Will the virtual event count towards my legacy staus?


Yes, absolutely! Your loyalty and determination to be part of the Run Malibu experience will always be rewarded.




Can I partecipate in multiple virtual events?


Absolutely! We actually encourage that. In fact if you sign up for the Malibu VRTL 5K as well as the VRTL 50-Mile Challenge for instance, you can log the 5K run as both the result of your 5K race and one of the activities towards completing your challenge! The same thing applies to the Malibu VRTL Half Marathon +VRTL 50-Mile Challenge, or even the Malibu VRTL 5K + VRTL Half Marathon +VRTL 50-Mile Challenge. Boom!




Virtual Events Cancellation Policy


The marathon running industry's policy is that all entry fees and ancillary purchases are non-refundable and non-transferable under any and all circumstances. This policy applies to all entrants and is in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected family/business emergency, have a medical emergency, etc.




Are International participants allowed?


Unfortunately, not at this time. This event is open to residents of the U.S. and U.S. Territories only, and medals may only be shipped to addresses within these regions. Please note that medals cannot be shipped to a PO Box or APO Box. After 2 attempts to deliver medals to the address provided, no additional attempts will be made.




How do I track my time?


You can track your run or walk with your favorite wearable device (Fitbit, Garming, Apple Watcht etc.) or mobile app such as Strava, Adidas Running and Runkeeper. If you're looking for an app that includes mapping information alongside run statistics, Run with Map My Run is a good choice.




IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE COURSE?


There's no time limit to complete your race as long as you complete your distance all at once. You do it at your own pace, choosing your preferred course.
