2021 CIRQUE IS CANCELLED
We won a few battles this year but we lost the war! We did everything possible to make this race happen in 2021 but we are now at an impass with not be able to obtain our final permit due to the recent increases in Delta variant of Covid 19. I share in your disappointment and ask for your support in giving me time to decompress from the last few weeks of working overtime on not only this race but also Rocky Peak. Once the dust settles, I will turn toward 2022 and make a plan to accommodate those who already registered for 2020 and 2021. Thanks again for your support and patience.
