Hello to All!
Local time: 7:59 PM
We hope this finds you safe and healthy!
Like many races that have come to the decision of late, The RUN828 Foundation Board has decided to cancel The Hellbender 100 Miler for 2020 for many reasons related to the COVID 19 Pandemic.
We will begin the process of refunding add-on purchases, including hoodies, extra meal tickets, lodging, etc. We ask that you please be patient as we work through these refunds.
Regarding registration, we are offering a 100% refund. However, if it is possible to allow us to retain some part of your registration fee as a tax-deductible donation to the RUN828 Foundation, we would be very grateful. As you can imagine, we have incurred several thousand dollars in expenses we cannot recoup this year.
Please let us know if you are able to donate any amount of your refund. A $50 donation would represent about 22% of the registration fee.
Also, PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU PREFER A CHECK OR PAYPAL for your refund.
Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1, 2020. After which time your entry fee will be refunded in full.
If you are not able to donate at this time, we completely understand, and we will issue a full refund. Documentation can be provided (upon request) for your donation for tax purposes.
All those who chose to defer to 2021 will also be refunded, as no deferments will be honored in case the event cannot be held in 2021.
We hope you stay safe!
The RUN828 Foundation
