The Goose Chase has a no refund policy due to the pre-ordering of event shirts, medals, bibs, etc. We understand that emergencies or last minute schedule changes do occur, therefore, to better accommodate you, we have some other options instead.

  • You can transfer your entry to someone else
  • You can switch to the virtual option and turn in your virtual race time at a later time, and still receive the shirt and medal.
  • You can defer to the next year

If none of these options work for you and a refund is still needed, there will be a $10 service charge through September 30th and we are not responsible for the online registration fee. After October 1st, there will not be any refunds. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@thegoosechase.org
