Additional Race and Registration Information
What happens if the race sells out? Can I still get in?
There are several ways that you may still get a spot in the race when it sells out. When someone cancels or changes their race entry, this will free up spots to the race, which will allow someone new to register for the event. Please continue to check the imATHLETE registration page up to the race date to see if any spots have opened up. We will also post updates on our Facebook page as we see entries come in.
A waitlist will launch when the entire race has been sold out. The waitlist lets you sign up for a chance to participate in the event and is a handy way to acquire a race entry after the event has sold out. Signing up for a Wait List does not guarantee you will get in the event. The terms for an event’s waitlist will be printed at the bottom of the first screen of EventBrite registration only if an event is filled to capacity. If you sign up on a waitlist, you will be notified if a slot in the race opens up for you. If you do NOT get into an event, you will not receive a refund for the waitlist slot. imATHLETE does not offer refunds. Instead, you will receive a Gift Code from the event organizer that can be used to register for the 2018 Biltmore/Kiwanis Race. To sign up for the waitlist please visit our registration page on imathlete.com. No transfers or refunds from the waitlist.
We understand that emergencies happen, people get sick and injuries occur. Participants may cancel race entries up to April 1st and receive a 50% credit towards the 2018 Biltmore/Kiwanis race. All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please email us by April 1st, 2017 if you need to cancel.
