Registration Policy

The Fredericton Marathon organizing committee is implementing two new registration policies – refunds and transfers. Effectively immediately, there are no more deferrals. Refunds will not be offered on deferrals from 2022, and 2022 promo codes will only be valid for the 2023 event.

The refund policy is as follows:

  • Due to the fact that a number of our expenses are incurred well in advance of race weekend in order to have them for you on time, we are not able to offer a full registration refund for the entirety of the year.
    • Before February 14, 2023, at 11:59 pm, we are able to offer a full refund of your registration fees, including tax minus any Race Roster processing fees.
    • Between February 15, 2023, and March 31, 2023, at 11:59 pm, we are able to offer a 50% refund of your registration fees, including tax minus any Race Roster processing fees.
    • Starting April 1, 2023, we are unable to offer any refund.
    • Email refund requests to

Insurance Opportunity to Purchase:

Fredericton Marathon Inc. has partnered with RegShield through Race Roster providing the opportunity to purchase a protection policy on your registration if you can’t make the event. RegShield is a protection product made for athletes by athletes. It provides coverage for many of life’s roadblocks (illness, injury, death of family members, etc.) as these are the reasons that most athletes are unable to compete in their events.

During registration you will be offered to purchase this policy through Fanshield. This policy is only available during registration and can’t be applied retroactively. The fee structure of this policy is calculated as a percentage of your final race fees.

Please note: This protection is through the third-party provider, FanShield NOT Fredericton Marathon Inc. For enquiries, claims, etc., you will have to contact FanShield directly.

Registration Options:

1. Transfer Race to Another Runnerdeadline of April 23, 2023 – 11:59pm
If you would like to transfer your registration to a new participant, this can be done through our registration page on Race Roster.

Bib swapping can cause medical problems on race day and any participant found doing so without having properly transferred their registration will not be allowed to participate and will be banned from future races!

2. Transfer Race to Another Distancedeadline of April 23, 2023 – 11:59pm
If you need to change your registered race (e.g., from half marathon to 10K), this can be done through our registration page on Race Roster.

Please note: If you are switching to a more expensive race, you will be required to pay the difference.  No refund will be issued if you switch to a lower priced race.

Registration Need to Know:

2023 runners deferring from 2022 need to use the promo code provided to them by Race Roster to re-register for their respective races.  Promo codes for 2022 deferrals will be sent via email from Race Roster in October 2022.

If you are unable to find this email, please contact Race Roster directly at 1-855-969-5515 or email

All registrations received by 11:59pm on March 30, 2023 guarantees you a dri-fit participant shirt but NOT the requested size. (Although we will do our best to accommodate your size request).

Please be aware there is a six (6) hour cut-off for the marathon. If you have not passed the half marathon timing mat by 10:15 AM (2 hours and 45 minutes after the start), you will be directed to the finish line and given a half marathon finishing time.
