COVID 19 UPDATES REFUNDS AND VIRTUAL POSSIBILITY IF THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT REGISTRATION
WHEN - Saturday, December 12, 2020
I see a lot of races cancelling entirely with no alternatives, offering deferrals to dates you may not want and some cannot or will not offer refunds.
As a runner, I understand things don’t always go as planned. I also understand that in this time of so much uncertainty, I want to be forward thinking to look at pending obstacles and ways to still make the event a success for the race participant.
These NEW AND DIFFERENT guidelines and logistics for 2020 Pigtails Run will hopefully only be needed for one year. I hope you still register and run this race (even if it’s forced to virtual for all). As your RD, I would be remiss in not preparing and planning for impending COVID impacts now. I DO NOT want to take anyone by surprise and I feel getting this information to you now will help you decide about registration.
Most importantly I have put in place options for all runners that I think is fair and allows informed decision making.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Should you have additional questions.
