2020 Road Race Cancellation Policy
The Marathon by the Sea organizing committee regrets to inform you that Event Weekend August 21st â€" 23rd, 2020 is cancelled.
The Province of New Brunswick is not allowing any large gatherings prior to December 31st, 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The health and safety of event participants, friends, family members, volunteers, and the entire community is out top priority.
Team MBTS is extremely disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to welcome you to Saint John and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Registered 2020 participants will receive correspondence shortly about deferrals and other options.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to our sponsors, partners, suppliers, for their understanding and cooperation.
A registered 2020 participant has one of two options.
Option 1: a registered 2020 participant will be able to defer or transfer their registration to August 2021 for free.
Option 2: a registered 2020 participant will be able to receive 50% refund of their initial registration fee minus the processing fee that was paid at time of registration.
Q: Why are you only offering a partial refund?
A: Although we have a NO REFUND policy, these are difficult times for everyone and the Marathon by the Sea committee has decided to refund as much as we can back to participants. Staging an event like a marathon has many upfront costs that unfortunately cannot be carried over to the following year.
Q: Have you selected your date in August 2021?
A: We are currently working with our registration sponsor Port Saint John to get a firm date on 2021.We will update ASAP
