Bib Transfers

Bib transfers are allowed for Grandma’s Marathon weekend events. If you’re interested in buying or selling a bib, we have created a Bib Transfer Portal on Facebook to connect you with others. To complete a transfer, please visit the Race Roster page and use your account.

The transfer process is the ONLY authorized way to transfer an entry to another person, and there is a $26.95 transaction fee to be paid by the person redeeming the transferred entry. If you choose to transfer your entry to another person, you are responsible for arranging payment for the entry with the person you are transferring it to.

The deadline to transfer a race entry is 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2022. No transfers will be accepted after this date.

Running under another person’s name is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification and jeopardize your participation in future Grandma’s Marathon events. Entry fees are non-refundable.

If you have any questions regarding the bib transfer process, please call our office at (218) 727-0947.
