Pregnancy Entry Deferral

The Pregnancy Entry Deferral request period for the 2024 race will be open March 1-July 31, 2024.

Racers who are unable to run the Mount Marathon Race due to pregnancy or childbirth may request a race deferral in order to retain their Priority Registration status for the next year. This deferral is not available to the partner of someone who is pregnant.

Who Is Eligible to Use the Pregnancy Entry Deferral:

Anyone who:

  • is registered for AND has paid the full entry fee for that year’s race and is pregnant during race registration or becomes pregnant prior to race day regardless of how they obtained their race entry (Priority, lottery, earned entry, sponsor bib, etc.)
  • Women who are registered and have paid the full entry fee and gave birth between January 1-March 1 of the race year.

To obtain a Pregnancy Entry Deferral, a race entrant must:

  • submit a Pregnancy Deferral Request Form by July 31 and upload a written confirmation of the pregnancy signed by a medical professional or proof of child’s birth.

Approved deferrals will register the following year from March 1-31 using the normal registration process (they must still pay the entry fee for the following year).

The form for deferral requests will be posted at the bottom of this page during that period.
