THE SOLUTIONS

New Date: October 2023

The DCNR informed us on Friday September 30, 2022 that due to a change in policy that no permit would be issued for the 2022 Bucks County Marathon Weekend.

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this whole mess. This completely blindsided us.

Race shirts, finisher medals, string bags, bibs and other swag are already in production so that we would get them in time for the race. We'd appreciate it if you stuck with us until next year but understand if you cannot.

Here's what we could work out.

We have a few race date options for 2023 right now. Our current thought is for Saturday October 28, 2023. That date keeps us from interfering with any Chicago, Marine Corps, Atlantic City, New York City, Bridge Run or Philadelphia Marathon or other existing events we play a part in’s plans.

It’s my hope that some of you will opt to stay with us until next year and help us go out on a high note!

OPTIONS: 

DEFER TO OUR 2023 BUCKS COUNTY MARATHON which will in fact be the absolute last marathon run on that double out-and-back course. Still themed as the LAST DANCE

runBUCKS CREDIT for use on other in-house events or merchandise.

TRANSFER TO THE PHILADELPHIA MARATHON RACE WEEKEND: This would give you the same distance race options a week later in the same region of the country.. You would need to request to opt in and a code would be created for you.

REQUEST A REFUND: A credit card charge back will cost us additional fees as would administering a refund through RunSignUp. We’d also request a few weeks to get this together and issue those who want the refund option a check.

FOR EACH REGISTRANT YOU NEED TO OPT IN.

THE DECISION PROCESS HAS REACHED IT'S DEADLINE. PHILADELHIA MARATHON WILL BE INFORMED TODAY, TUESDAY OCTOBER 11, 2022, AS TO THOSE WHO HAVE ASKED TO BE TRANSFERED TO THE PHILADELPHIA MARATHON WEEKEND. PLEASE GIVE US (BOTH EVENTS A FEW DAYS TO GET YOU FURTHER INFORMATION AND CODES TO ENTER THEIR RACE

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us.

Thanks for your patience and continued support!

You will opt in.

The race will issue you a code for registration to their appropriate event and you will register for that race at no additional charge

Philadelphia Marathon Weekend will bill runBUCKS and any additional registration fees will be assumed by runBUCKS

UNDER THIS OPTION YOU WILL BE ISSUED CREDIT TOWARDS runBUCKS MERCHANDISE, SERVICES or RENTALS AND POSSIBLY runBUCKS IN-HOUSE EVENTS

THIS SUPERSEDES THE WRITTEN POLICY YOU REGISTERED UNDER:

Should the race be rescheduled or cancelled you will be given a credit, good for two years towards future runBUCKS events or merchandise.

because it's the right thing to do.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

If you fight your credit card charge additional fees accrue.

If we issue a refund through RunSignUp additional fees accrue.

We hope for you understanding as we would request that we issue you a check in the coming weeks.

We'd like to continue producing events and this check issuance will allow us to stay in business

Description

In an email I received at 9:23am this morning I was informed that due to a change in policy

the DCNR will no longer grant special event permits on holiday weekends.


This will include the 12th Annual Bucks County Marathon Weekend, which is also Veterans Day weekend.


We felt it was most important to inform you of the cancellation as quickly as possible to cancel and alter travel, training and race plans.
We are working on options as quickly as we can and will let you know as soon as we possibly can.

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this situation.

The 2022 Bucks County Marathon Weekend will be a one day event. This may be the LAST DANCE for the marathon

       13Nov2022 12th Annual Bucks County Marathon (9am start) with the 10th Annual Delaware Canal Half Marathon

THE DCNR HAS ASKED TO USE THE USATF certified DOUBLE OUT-AND-BACK "Chasing the Unicorn" course again this year.

Currently the normal 500 participants per day limit is in place. This is subject to change

PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERNS and community standards may alter some plans. By registering herein you agree to abide to any and all COVID restrictions which may be in place at the time of the event. Non compliance could be grounds for disqualification and do not constitute a reason for deferment nor refund.

Should the race be rescheduled or cancelled you will be given a credit, good for two years towards future runBUCKS events or merchandise.

COMPLETE 2022 BUCKS COUNTY MARATHON and DELAWARE CANAL HALF MARATHON INFORMATION WILL BE PUBLISHED BEFORE THE EVENT.

LAST YEAR'S RUNNERS GUIDE IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE BELOW FOR AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT. SOME INFORMATION WILL CHANGE

CrackedBell SUBLIMATED LONG SLEEVE RACE SHIRTS to participants registered by September 17, 2022

WE DON'T OFFER DISCOUNT CODES. We like to offer everyone the lowest prices we can. The earlier you register the more you save. Let's face it those other races are artificially inflating their fees so they can track where you found out about their event, and that data is often flawed.

The course is 8 feet wide, and that is out-and-back, and the park is open to the public. Especially for this reason please don't ask if you can run with your very well behaved dog, cat, or ferret. You may be joined by Canada geese, whitetail deer, turtles, foxes and more. It is especially cool when the heron shows up.

There are no refunds or transfers. SEE POLICIES page at runBUCKS.com for complete deferral information
