*In the event that the 2021 Houston Marathon is cancelled due to COVID-19 related concerns, then charity registrations will be handled as follows:
Fundraise for Registration (FFR)Entries will NOT be deferred. If a participant decides to re-register for 2022 as an FFR runner, the donations will transfer to 2022 and will count toward their 2022 fundraising minimum.
HeroParticipants will have the option to defer their registration to the 2022 or 2023 equivalent race distance. Donations will transfer to 2022 ONLY and as such the participant will ONLY be able to receive HERO benefits in 2022. If they defer to 2023, they will receive their entry only and be considered as a general participant, unless a donation is made in that year that qualifies them as a HERO.
You can also become a fundraiser and encourage donors to support TCM’s life-saving mission by donating directly to your fundraising campaign.
