Once you enter the Kinvara Rock and Road Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K we can not offer you a refund due to injury or for any other reason, including the race being postponed for reasons out of our control (e.g. Covid). In the event of a race postponement or cancellation your entry will automatically be deferred to the next event. As race organisers we have to plan the event based on the number of entries, which affects order quantities for medals, toilets, race numbers, water, refreshments, fruit, timing chips, etc. (its a long list!).

However, we know its frustrating if you have a genuine reason for not being able to run so we can offer two options.

1. Defer your 2022 entry to 2023 before Tuesday 15th February 2022.
You can defer your entry to the 2023 event if you notify us by email no later than Tuesday 15th February 2022. We will then be in touch when registration opens for 2023. You will need to enter your details again as normal but with an entry code that we will provide. If you can’t run in 2023 you will forfeit your place and entry fee. There is a charge of €7 for a deferral. To organise a deferral please make the payment here.

2. Transfer your 2022 entry to a friend before Tuesday 22nd February 2022.
If you can’t make it to the start line in 2022 you can transfer your entry to a friend if you notify us by email no later than Tuesday 22nd February 2022. We will need to get details for the new entry so we can enter them in the system and cancel your entry. There is no charge for a number transfer. To organise a transfer email info@rockandroad.ie.

We will need:

  • your own name, date of birth and contact number
  • for the new entry: name, sex, DOB, contact number, email address, county or country of residence, club, emergency contact name and emergency contact number (not someone entered in the event).

The deadline for deferrals is Tuesday 15th February 2022.
Deferrals are valid for one year only and entries can not be deferred twice.
The deadline for number transfers is Tuesday 22nd February 2022.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners…
