Runner Referral Program
Share your love of the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend!
Want a chance to earn back some of that registration fee?
It’s easy - encourage your friends and family to join you for the AACR Marathon, Dietz & Watson Half Marathon, Independence Challenge, Liberty Challenge or Freedom Challenge, and receive a refund of $25 (3 referral registrations for eligible events), $50 (5 referral registrations for eligible events) or full refund (10 or 15 referral registrations for eligible events, a maximum of $155).*
How does it work?
After you complete your online registration, your confirmation email will contain a unique URL link that you can share with friends and family. Every time that link is used by someone who completes a registration, we’ll keep a tally.
What can I earn?
If you refer three (3) people to register for an eligible event *, you will receive a $25 refund.
If you refer five (5) people to register for an eligible event *, you will receive a $50 refund.
If you refer ten (10) people to register for an eligible event *, you will receive a full refund, up to $155.
VIP package: If you refer fifteen (15) people to register for an eligible event *, you will receive a full refund, access to the VIP tent.
(Note: Referral refunds will be awarded only once you have reached three (3), five (5), ten (10) and fifteen (15) referrals. Maximum refund allowed is $155. The amount will be applied to the credit card on file with your RunSignUp account)
How do I participate?
Referrals can only be credited to you when a registration is completed using your unique URL. Make sure your friends and family use your link to get to the registration site!
