We want to make sure all our runners are physically healthy, the Florida Marathon & Half Marathon seeks to ensure the greatest number of properly trained athletes are on the start line. We understand that things happen like injuries, business trips, and unforeseeable conflicts. Our deferment and transfer policies allow runners to delay participation by a year or give someone else the chance to run in their place.



This year, The Florida Marathon & Half Marathon is allowing runners the option to defer their original registration to the next year’s marathon. Deferring an entry guarantees a spot to re-register in the following year’s event by forgoing participation in that year’s Marathon or Half Marathon. There is a $35 fee associated with this service. Any additional purchases made at the time of the initial registration including 5K Florida Today runs are not eligible to be deferred to a future registration. An entry may only be deferred once. Link can be found below.

Runners who deferred an entry from the 2018 to the 2019 Florida Marathon & Half Marathon must re-register to complete this process and guarantee participation. These runners will receive an instructional email and, later, a courtesy reminder once registrations are open for the following year.
