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. Generally speaking, the event has a NO REFUND Policy.
Should such event cancellation or postponement occur, registered participants may be given the following options:
- Defer entry to future event date
- Donate event registration fees to an official event charity
- Receive t-shirt and medal and run virtually
These serve as examples only. Specific protocol for allocating participant registration fees would be communicated to participants in the case of an event cancellation based on the circumstances. Communication would specify participant response time within a limited time window following the cancellation to allow for adequate management action.
