The Air Force Marathon has officially sold out all races and organizers have announced details for the transfer program.

"The transfer program is the only official way for runners to give their bib to another runner," said  Rob Aguiar, the aace director. "Along with the charity partner slots, it is the only way for someone not currently registered to secure a spot."

The transfer program will open July 22 at 9 a.m. EST and run through August 1 until 5 p.m. EST. Runners who wish to transfer their bib will be able to register on the Air Force Marathon website and will be given a special code. That code will allow another nonregistered runner to register under that person's bib.

Costs for the transfer program vary for each race and charges will apply to the person transferring in to a race. This is the only official way to transfer a bib.

"Running a race without the correctly registered bib is against race rules," Aguiar said. "It's important for safety and health reasons that we know who is running our course."

Race Transfer program processing fee:
Full Marathon $30
Half Marathon $25
10K $20
5K $10

The Air Force Marathon's nine charity partners also have limited full and half marathon spots available. More information on fundraising requirements and the charities are available on our website at

"We highly recommend runners consider our charity partners," said Mr. Aguiar. "Each charity partner organization has a wonderful cause and each runner helps raise money for the charity."

The 2013 Air Force Marathon is Sept. 21 at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. The 5K is Sept. 20 at Wright State University's Nutter Center. The Sports and Fitness Expo will also be at the Nutter Center  Sept. 19 and  Sept. 21. Volunteer registration for all jobs and shifts are open now and you can register at
