New York Road Runner a donné sa conclusion ce week-end quant aux solutions possibles pour les coureurs inscrits au marathon de New York en 2012 comme moi :
2012 Marathoners may choose one of the following options:
- Option #1 – Refund. While NYRR has always had a no-refund policy for the Marathon, given these extraordinary circumstances, we are offering runners who were entered in the 2012 Marathon, and were unable to run due to the cancellation 1, the opportunity to obtain a full refund of their 2012 Marathon entry fee (excluding the $11 processing fee); OR
- Option #2 – Guaranteed entry to the ING New York City Marathon for 2013, 2014, or 2015. Entrants in the 2012 Marathon who choose this option will be granted guaranteed entry to the Marathon for the year they choose. Runners will be required to pay all processing and entry fees at the time of application (in the given year), with fees maintained at the same rate as those paid in 2012; OR
- Option #3 – Guaranteed entry to the NYC Half 2013. Entrants in the 2012 Marathon who choose this option will be granted guaranteed entry to the NYC Half 2013, to be run on March 17, 2013. Runners will be required to pay all processing and entry fees at the time of application. Availability will be limited.
L’option #2 est celle que j’attendais ! Maintenant j’espère que les modalités seront claires pour récupérer son dossard sans passer à nouveau par une agence de voyage qui gonfle les prix. Quant aux coureurs espérant plus de la Justice, je leur souhaite bien du courage…
