Transfer and Deferral Policies


Due to health restrictions in Austin, Texas we are unable to host The Haunted Half in Texas this year. Our team has worked hard on the beautiful Haunted Half medals and swag and we still want you to be able to participant in this spooky fun event, which is why we have created the Virtual Haunted Half.

For those who registered previously, you will be transferred to the Virtual Haunted Half and may opt-out if you choose. Your registration will also be deferred to the 2021 Austin Haunted Half where we hope to see everyone running again.

Due to unforeseen circumstances with the global pandemic, COVID-19 we can issue refunds for the Austin Haunted Half if so desired. We have created a Virtual Haunted Half option so you don’t have to miss out on the Haunted Half fun from your own home.
