I PURCHASED FANSHIELD, CAN I MAKE MY CLAIM FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?
When you purchase a protection policy through FanShield, you will receive an email directly from them with the information on how to file a claim. If you did not see the email, you may go to this link to file your claim.

As a Virtual Event, the policy will still function the same and filing the claim will follow all the normal protocols. Please note the FanShield policies in regards to COVID-19 or go to FanShield FAQs.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY
Entry fees are non-refundable under all circumstances. That means that once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund for any reason and you will not be able to defer your entry for another year. The Marathon, in accordance with management executives, city officials and local law enforcement has the authority to cancel any of the events for emergency purposes such as, but not limited to, inclement weather or threat of terrorism. If such emergency conditions force cancellation, refunds cannot be provided since funds will have been spent in preparation for race day.

 

RACE T-SHIRT SIZES
When you register you will be asked to choose your t-shirt size. Our race shirts are made by Race Merchandise. Click here to find the shirt sizing details for the adult and youth t-shirts.

 

PERSONALIZE YOUR MEDAL WITH iTAB
The iTAB fits perfectly onto the ribbon of your Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend medal, engraved with your Name and Finish Time, and is a great way to celebrate your achievement. Your personalized iTab will be mailed directly to you within one month of the completion of your 2020 virtual race.
