Refund, Deferral, and Transfer Policy

Bib to Bib Transfer

You may officially transfer your race entry to another non-registered runner. For further details and steps, see the instructions below.

Before you begin the transfer process, please note:

  • You will not be refunded/reimbursed for your original registration. Any transfer compensation must be arranged between you and the transfer recipient. The race organizers are not responsible for the terms of payment between parties in the transfer process and we do not condone the resale of registrations at elevated prices.
  • The race entry recipient will be charged a $30 transfer fee to complete the transfer for full and half marathon distances and $10 for any race distance less than a half marathon.
  • A new bib will be assigned to the race entry recipient only after new registration is complete online.

How To Transfer Your Bib:

  1. Find a non-registered runner interested in officially participating in the said event. Race organizers do not participate in this part of the process.
  2. To complete the transfer, the registered runner will log-in to their RunSignup profile, find the Life Time Miami Marathon & Half event listing, click “Manage Registration”, then click “Transfer to Another Runner” at the top of the page.
    • The currently registered athlete will be withdrawn from the event.
    • The transfer recipient will receive an email with a registration code. The transfer recipient is required to register with code, and pay the transfer fee.
    • Once the transaction is finalized, the transfer recipient will receive an email confirming race registration.

ALL TRANSFERS MUST BE COMPLETED/REQUESTED TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT (SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2022). After the deadline, the current registrant and the athlete to whom the bib will be transferred should visit our Athlete Services at Solutions at the Expo.

Any participant who transfers his or her race entry or race bib without following the above process will be removed from official race results and disqualified from participating in any future Life Time event.

Note: This policy is strictly available for race entry only. This policy does not apply to add-on packages. There are no transfer fee refunds under any circumstances.


Deferrals allow a participant unable to attend this year’s event to defer their registration to the following year, space permitting. Deferrals are available up until 2 weeks prior to the eventSaturday, January 22 (11:59 PM EST).


The deferral is applied only to the event in question – in this case, the Life Time Miami Marathon & Half. Deferrals can only be applied to the same event the following year and cannot be carried over multiple years. Processing fees may apply. For specific instructions, please click here.


If you would like to defer your entry to next year, please follow these instructions:
  1. Login to your RunSignUp account
  2. Select “View/Edit Registration”
  3. Select “Defer Registration” and follow steps to defer

Please note: A deferral fee of $30.00 will be administered at this time. Once you complete your purchase, you will be sent an email confirmation of your deferral status. You will be emailed instructions to register for the 2023 event after the 2022 event passes. You must follow these instructions to register for the 2023 event and follow deadlines – your registration will NOT automatically rollover.

*There are no deferral fee refunds under any circumstances.
