Refund, Deferral and Transfer Policies
Event cancellation: If the race is cancelled due to inclement weather, acts of God, or unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of Event Management, refunds will not be given; however, a partial credit will be offered to the following year’s race. A significant amount of time, effort and expense is invested by the day of a race (e.g. shirts, medals, awards, etc.) that can not be recovered and for this reason a 100% refund is not possible. Scroll to the "Policies" section at the bottom of this page of our website for more details.

Course changes: Event Management reserves the right to alter, cancel or eliminate any portion of a race at any time in the interest of athlete safety or for other reasons beyond our control. No refunds will be issued if course changes become necessary.

Refunds: Refunds will not be issued. If you are unable to participate in the event after you have registered you have the option to either defer your entry to the next year’s Cranberry Trifest or transfer your entry to another Sun Multusport Events race. See below for the details on our Deferral and Transfer policies.

Deferrals: Athletes may request a deferral of their 2022 entry to the 2023 Cranberry Trifest up until July 15, 2022. Deferral requests must be submitted in writing to info@SunMultisportEvents.com. The deferral schedule and deferral fee are as follows:
      • Athletes requesting deferral by May 20, 2022 will pay a $25 deferral fee at the time they register for the 2023 race.
      • Athletes requesting deferral between May 21, 2022 and July 15, 2022 will pay a $50 deferral fee at the time they register for the 2023 race.
      • No deferrals will be granted after July 15, 2022.
Transfers: Registered athletes that are unable to race may transfer to another SME race. Transfer requests must be submitted to info@SunMultisportEvents.com by July 2, 2021. If the registration fee for the race transferred to is LESS than the registration fee already paid, the difference in price is forfeited. If the registration fee for the race transferred to is MORE than the registration fee paid you will be required to pay the difference in registration fees. Note that any USAT fees collected during the registration process are transmitted directly to USAT and are, therefore, not refundable by SME, but athletes can petition USAT for a refund or to have the 1-day license fee applied to another event (email them at membership@usatriathlon.org or call them at 719-955-2807) . Online processing fees are also non-refundable.

The exchange, transfer or sale of entries to other athletes is strictly prohibited.
