THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
As we are all experiencing in our personal and professional lives, the impact of this long-term COVID 19 closure continues to cancel or postpone most Texas community events. The Red River Trail Run has not been excluded from this widespread impact. To prioritize the health and safety of the trail running community, the North Texas Trail Runners and Red River Dirt Riders nonprofits have made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 Red River Trail Run.
We’d like to offer participants the chance to support Abigail’s Arms by donating their entry fee. Unless otherwise requested by email (by Sunday, September 13th) all other participants will automatically be refunded, less UltraSignup fees. If you had registered more than 90 days prior to the refund, we’ll need to process an alternative refund form.
Abigail’s Arms Cooke County Family Crisis Center whose mission is to embrace children, individuals and families to inspire change and create stronger, safer communities through education and awareness. The focus of donations will be the services provided for children who are victims of crime. Thanks to past participants and sponsors, we've been able to donate $7000 to Abigail's Arms.
