No MCM for You? Transfer is the Answer.
Registered runners who find themselves unable to participate in the MCM may transfer an entry to an unregistered, hopeful marathoner. It is up to the runners to find each other to execute the transfer. The MCM Facebook page is a great way to connect. If the distance has become the issue, runners may opt to run the MCM10K by shifting their entry from the MCM to the 6.2 mile event. Procedures, deadlines and fees for both options are provided on the MCM Transfer Page. No MCM for You? Transfer is the Answer.
