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 policies specific to COVID-19.

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: Deferral requests must be submitted in writing to Deferrals may be granted under certain circumstances (e.g. pregnancy, military transfer) at the discretion of Event Management. Deferrals granted will require that the athlete pay an administrative fee when redeeming the deferred entry the following year per the following schedule:

  • Deferrals requested on or before June 30, 2021 will be granted but you will be required to pay a $25 deferral fee when registering for the 2022 Cranberry Trifest.
  • Deferrals requested between July 1, 2021 and July 31, 2021 will be granted but you will be required to pay a $40 deferral fee when registering for the 2022 Cranberry Trifest.
Transfers: Registered athletes that are unable to race may transfer to another SME race. Transfer requests must be submitted to 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 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.
