Cancellation and Refund Policy

Refund & Cancellation Policy

Governor’s Cup staff remains optimistic that we will be welcoming runners to Helena for the 47th edition of the Governor’s Cup. We also understand that COVID-19 continues impacting our lives. There are a lot of unknowns that we are trying to plan for between now and race weekend, which is June 11-12, 2021.

We want to be as transparent as possible and will continually communicate any race changes made due to the pandemic. Our updated cancellation policy reflects those efforts. We updated our policies to give runners more flexibility while also recognizing that the race must pay for several costs well in advance of the event.

In-Person Race Cancellation Prior To April 1, 2021

If the Governor’s Cup makes the decision to cancel the in-person race prior to April 1, registered runners will have the following options:

  • 50% refund of race fees; or
  • Switch to the equivalent virtual race; or
  • Donate their race fees to the Caring Foundation of Montana.
  • If a person does not select by a date given by the Governor’s Cup, they will automatically be moved to the donation option.

In-Person Race Cancellation After April 1, 2021

If the Governor’s Cup makes the decision to cancel the in-person race after April 1, registered runners will have the following options:

  • No refunds will be offered after April 1, 2021.
  • Participants can defer their race registration to 2022 for a $10 fee; or
  • Switch to the equivalent virtual race; or
  • Donate their race fees to the Caring Foundation of Montana.
  • If a person does not select by a date given by the Governor’s Cup, they will automatically be moved to the donation option.
