Cancellation and Refund Policy

Governor’s Cup staff looks forward to welcoming runners to Helena for the 48th edition of the Governor’s Cup. Planning is well under way to hold all of our races in person on June 10-11, 2022. The Governor’s Cup has updated our refund and cancellation policy for the 2022 race. If you have any questions about the cancellation and refund policy, please contact race director Bryan Haines.

Governor’s Cup Refund Policy

The Governor’s Cup will return to its traditional policy of not offering runners refunds for the 2022 race. We understand life happens (change of plans, training injuries, a long-lost relative’s wedding) that may cause you to miss the fun of Gov Cup weekend. With that in mind, runners have the following options if they are not able to join us in Helena:

  • Participants can defer their race registration to 2023 for a $10 fee; or
  • Transfer their registration to a family member or friend; or
  • Donate their race fees to the Caring Foundation of Montana.

Governor’s Cup Cancellation Policy

If the Governor’s Cup is not able to host an in-person event, we will move registered runners to a virtual race and not cancel the event. In the event that the race is moved to a virtual setting and a runner doesn’t want to participate in a virtual event, registered runners will have the following options:

  • Participants can defer their race registration to 2023 for a $10 fee; or
  • Transfer their registration to a family member or friend; or
  • Donate their race fees to the Caring Foundation of Montana.

*Race deferrals must be made by May 30, 2022.

Changes between race distances and transfer of entries to another runner will be allowed. To defer your race registration, change your event or transfer your entries, please do so through your RunSignUp race profile.

COVID-19 Considerations

Governor’s Cup staff will continue monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes working with local public health officials and our own medical experts. The Governor’s Cup expects to be able to once again hold the event in 2022. Please contact race director Bryan Haines with any questions.
