Race Roster collects a fee on all transactions (processing fees) as this is an industry standard. Their team assists our races from beginning to end, and this fee allows them to provide meaningful customer support to all participants, covers merchant costs of processing the transaction, the technology costs of developing an online registration platform, includes event cancellation protection for participants in the case of an emergency, and ensures that the online race experience is seamless for all.
We understand that some people aren’t familiar with where these fees are spent, and may think they are an irrelevant added cost, though without them, we would not be able to host the events that we do.
In the case of an in-person race cancellation, participants will have the option to transfer into the virtual event or receive a refund.
Based on the course restrictions in the City of Toronto streets, there will be a registration cap of 5,000 for the marathon, 12,000 for the half marathon and 7,500 for the 5K.
* These registration caps are subject to change.
Your deferral code will be valid until 2023. If you received a deferral code for the 2020 event, you will be able to use it towards the 2023 Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
