"Worry-Free" Voucher (2020 Cancellation)
CIM “Worry-Free” Voucher:

In April, we swiftly outlined a “Worry-Free Registration Guarantee” that let all of our registrants know that if the race was unable to be conducted, they will receive a voucher for a free entry into any one of the next 3 CIMs (2021-2023).

Your voucher code was enclosed in your cancellation email you received September 25, 2020. If you are unable to locate the voucher code or cancellation email please contact

How to redeem your voucher code:

  • Voucher codes can be used to register one time to either the 2021, 2022 or 2023 CIM.
  • Codes are only valid from registration opening (early Spring) until May 31st of your selected year. If the voucher code is not redeemed by May 31st it must be used the following year. Any unclaimed vouchers beyond May 31, 2023 are void.
  • Voucher code can be redeemed during the registration process when you are prompted to enter a promo code.
  • Voucher codes are unique to each participant and are not transferable.
  • In the event you added items to your 2020 CIM registration (example: VIP, Run the Parkway, Capitol Challenge…) these items will automatically be added to your registration. Do not add these items again during your registration process or you will be charged.
VIP Program

Get the CIM VIP Experience:

If you purchased a VIP package with your 2020 CIM registration, your VIP status is attached to your voucher code. There is no need to reregister for VIP when registering for the marathon as your VIP purchase will roll over to your next registration.
