Cancellation Policy: We cannot offer refunds.  Registration may be sold to another person. Entries may not be transferred to next year.

Registration Transfers

Though we are not able to offer refunds for the race due to the fact that most of our costs for staging the race are incurred long before race day (staff costs, medals, and shirts, for example), we are making arrangements to help runners transfer their registration to other individuals.

We do allow participants to switch races, space permitting. Participants may officially transfer a bib to another person, but giving your bib to another participant is forbidden and will result in automatic disqualification.  Log into your Race Roster account, click the “transfer” button.  You will be able to either switch between the half marathon and 5k; or transfer to another person.  You will need the email address of the person you are transferring to, enter that and they will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the transfer.

Transferring between races after April 21, will need to be completed on-site on Friday, May 3 between 1-8pm at packet pickup.

If you need assistance on transferring, please contact Jordan at

“Like running in a cathedral in the woods.”

Tom Held -Silent Sports magazine

“Once again you put on an awesome race. I have ran all 8 years, I saved all my shirts and this is a must run race. Thanks for all the effort.”

Carol Mulinex

Jes Borland

“All aspects of this event are first class…. The best scenery, most challenging course to be found. Great job Door County Half crew A+. See you in 2016.” 

Scott Luchterhand

“I have run several races – and quite honestly this is the one of the best supported run ever. You do an EXCELLENT JOB on all levels. The support is amazing. The volunteers exceptional. I have ZERO complaints or suggestions.”

Sara Frizelle

“I have done a few half marathons around the midwest and this is by far the best. The organization and communication is fantastic and so are the facilities and race perks. The route is also ideal: starting flat, allowing for the body to acclimate ; followed by a steep incline and then down hill once the body gets a little fatigued. I love it!”

Margaret Pennoyer     

“I’ve raced all over the world and The Door County Half Marathon is one of my favorites.  It’s very well organized, it’s in the heart of beautiful and peaceful Door County, and the course rolls through some of the most picturesque half marathon miles in the world.”

Jenny Hadfield – Runner’s World
