Regrettably we cannot offer refunds. While we reserve the right to cancel the race in case of "force majeure" ("unforeseen circumstances or acts of God"), such as extreme weather, terrorism, war, safety concerns, COVID restrictions and similar, as well as any other circumstances beyond our control. In the event that we are forced to cancel the live race, we will offer a virtual race option. Should this become necessary, we will make an announcement as soon as possible with details at that time.
