What is the race cancellation policy?

Should such event cancellation or postponement occur, when applicable, the event will become ”virtual” and registered participants will receive their items in the mail. Certain circumstances may warrant a participant deferral to the next year or a refund, but these requests will be given on a case-by-case basis and are not promised.

Specific protocol for allocating participant registration fees will 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.
