Thanks so much for entering the Dr. Gann's Diet of Hope Cinco de Mayo 10K, 5K & FitKidz Mile that was scheduled for May 3, 2020. As was announced in an earlier email, as an organization SAR has decided as a preventative measure to cancel the race for this year due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus.

This decision was not any easy one, but the Board and Race Director are taking this preventive measure to ensure the safety of the community that we care for so deeply.

For the 2021 event, you will not need to pay any additional entry fees. You do not need to do anything, you will be entered into the 2021 event automatically.

Refunds are not an option per standard SAR policy due to the fact that the event has already incurred expenses leading up to race day.
If you have any questions regarding this email, please reply and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you,

Jeri Baker and Lucas Tyler
