Event Policies

Please email info@3bridgesmarathon.com with questions or comments.

Cancellation

The 3 Bridges Marathon may be cancelled, postponed, and/or rerouted for any reason at the sole discretion of the Race Committee, including but not limited to extreme weather, snow, ice, rain, lightning, cold, heat, and/or flooding.  Remember that the marathon is in December in Arkansas.  In light of recent weather-related events in Dallas, Memphis, Fayetteville, and Little Rock, it is critical that before you register and are charged your entry fee for the 3 Bridges Marathon, you read and confirm via your registration your understanding of all event policies.

Registration Fees

Registration fees for the 3 Bridges Marathon are non-refundable and non-transferable.  See Deferral Option policy.  Registration for the marathon is $85 plus service fee.  Late registration may be offered at an increased fee.

Deferral Option

Registration in the 2017 marathon may be deferred to 2018 at no charge through November 1, 2017, by following the deferral option in your RunSignUp account.  There will be no exceptions after this date. This is the only means by which your entry can be deferred. No other records will be kept of your deferral, including emails, verbal requests, or other communications. If you cannot participate in the 2017 marathon, but chose not to defer to 2018, please contact us to allow for a waiting list runner entry.  See Waiting List policy.

Waiting List 

When the cap is reached, the race is full and regular registration will be closed.  Runners will be placed on a waiting list via email request to wait@3bridgesmarathon.com.  An automatic reply will be sent confirming receipt of the request.  Waiting list requests will not be taken via email to info@3bridgesmarathon.com.  Waiting list entrants will be contacted and provided a code for entry, if a deferral is made and a spot becomes available. Waiting list runners will have three days from date contacted to register using the waiting list code.  Waiting list runners not registering within three days will be placed at the end of the waiting list and the next waiting list runner contacted for entry.

Transfers

Registrations are not transferable.

Inclement Weather 

The 3 Bridges Marathon inclement weather policy is that the race is on unless weather makes the roads and/or course impassable and/or unsafe or expected to be unsafe for runners, volunteers, and/or race officials at any point on race day.  See Cancellation policy above.  Facebook and email will be used to keep the runners up to date.  In the event of upstream flooding that makes any section of the course impassable but otherwise safe for the event to be held, an alternate uncertified marathon course will be used.  All decisions are at the discretion of the Race Committee.

If the race has to be halted after it has begun runners will be notified by the volunteers at each aid station. We have four designated areas for runners to seek shelter until a trolley can retrieve you. These are (1) Cook’s Landing Pavilion (approx. Miles 2 and 17.5 at the NLR base of the Big Dam Bridge)-  (2) the permanent restroom located near the dog park aid station (approx. Miles 4 and 15.5)-  (3)  the Clinton Presidential Library (approx. Mile 9.5)-   (4)   and the permanent restroom located near the Two Rivers Park parking lot (approx. Miles 21 and 24.)

Waiver

The marathon waiver is included with your online registration.  Specifically note the Event Policies listed above regarding cancellations, refunds, deferrals, waiting list, transfers, and inclement weather.  Online signature of the waiver upon registration acknowledges your understanding and compliance to all event policies.
