What is the race cancellation policy? 2019-01-15T21:23:27+00:00

What is the race cancellation policy?

Weather, emergencies, or other issues of public safety may cause cancellation or postponement of the Event(s), outside of the control of event management. In the instance of an unforeseen event cancellation, a majority of event expenses have already incurred. Should such event cancellation or postponement occur, registered participants will have two options:

  1. Defer entry to future event date
  2. Donate event registration fees to official event charity

Specific protocol for allocating participant registration fees would be communicated to participants in the case of an event cancellation. Communication would specify participant response time within a limited time window following the cancellation to allow for adequate management action.
