Spartan Race (OCR) Transfer Process

Spartan Trail (non-OCR) Transfer Process

Special Considerations

Spartan Race (OCR) Transfer Process: 

Timelines:

  • 30 Days To Transfer Your Registration: You have up until 30 days after your originally scheduled race to transfer to a new event. 
  • The option to defer will be taken offline WEDNESDAY prior to the event as all of the bibs for the race weekend need to be prepared. It will come back online by Wednesday after the event once we are able to verify the bibs that have not been used.
  • Hurricane Heat events can be transferred up until the MONDAY prior to the event. 
  • Kids events can be deferred up to the Wednesday night prior to the event. 

Pricing: 

  • To transfer your race, there will be a $35 transfer fee (not applicable for spectator passes or kids races).
  • The $14 Insurance Fee and $5/$10 Bag Check/Parking fees are charged per person, per day, per venue and is non-transferable and non-refundable. If you want to defer your entry, you will need to pay the $14 Insurance Fee again for the new event - NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • When you transfer your registration to a new event, a credit will be applied for the amount paid for the registration fee (minus any discounts) plus insurance and parking fees. For example, your original race price was $100, plus $20 for insurance and parking, and you had a discount for $25 off. You would receive a credit of $95 to use for your next race. When transferring, you will be responsible for any difference in price between the new race entry fee and your credit. 
  • Total - Upon checking out, the charges reflected will include the credit from your original price applied against the total of the new race entry fee. The remaining fees will include any remaining balance from your credit, the $35 transfer fee, the processing fees, and any applicable taxes. 
  • You will not be able to combine a transfer with any other coupons, offers, passes, or vouchers. 
  • The transfer credit is valid for a single use on a registration. Any deferment credit remaining after you sign up for the new event will be forfeited. It cannot be used for future events, the Participant Insurance, processing fees, or merchandise.  
  • Do to the unique nature of the Agoge, we are unable to offer a refund or future race credit under any circumstance.
  • At this time, you can only transfer your race to another Spartan event within the US.

Special Considerations

  1. Trifecta Pass Registrations - If you signed up for a race with a Trifecta Pass, you will need to contact Customer Support at us@spartan.com for help deferring your race. You can only transfer to  a race of the same distance (Sprint to Sprint, Super to Super, or Beast to Beast). Standard timelines and pricing (listed above) apply. 
  2. Volunteer Registrations - If you signed up for a race with a volunteer code and need to transfer, please email volunteer@spartan.com
  3. Groupons - If you signed up with a Groupon voucher, your race is not eligible to be transferred. More information on that can be found here
  4. Season Passes - As a Season Pass holder, you are not able to transfer your entries. Transferring includes additional fees, and it would be more cost effective to just sign up for your new race like normal with your pass. 
  5. Trail World Championships - The policies in this article do not apply to the Trail World Championship events. Those events are organized by our partners and they set their own policies regarding race changes. You can learn more about the Trail World Championships here.
