For a fee of $40 for Ironman 70.3 races and $90 for Ironman races, athletes can purchase the Full Refund Plan at the time of registration. The plan is administered by Stonebridge Benefit Services, Inc., a Transamerica Company, for race registration refunds. Effective immediately, athletes have the option to purchase the Full Refund Plan during the registration process for a number of 2015 U.S. Ironman and Ironman 70.3 races giving them additional flexibility and will co-exist with the Partial Refund Policy (for Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events) and the Transfer Policy (for Ironman events only).
Buying the Full Refund Plan allows athletes who are unable to participate in the event due to an injury, unforeseen illness, pregnancy, childbirth, active military duty, or travel delays to the event, to be considered for a full refund of the registration fees.
To claim a refund:
You will need to submit a refund request form along with documentation that shows that you are unable to participate in the event. In the case of an injury, illness or pregnancy, you must see a Qualified Medical Practitioner as defined by the terms and conditions of the Plan. The Qualified Medical Practitioner must advise you not to participate in the event and needs to sign your refund request form.
What is not covered:
This Plan does not cover intentionally self-inflicted injury or self-inflicted sickness, physical complications resulting from alcohol or substance abuse, or natural disasters.
