After reviewing our options carefully there simply is no winning in this situation and we have to accept that the 2020 race cannot happen. We considered strongly deferring to the fall but the race calendars are nearly fully and we would have faced difficulty getting enough racers to make the event viable. Rather than cannibalize other races in the fall we have decided to cancel.
For those who have already signed up we will provide three options: (1) defer to 2021 (date TBD), (2) donate your registration to the Kanawha Running Club, or (3) get a full refund. We are working on emails and further details to you. Please bear with us as we navigate these issues. Also, please go to Appalachian Timing and find another race to run - Ricky and the staff at APTiming need our support.
Stay distant, stay safe, and see you in 2021.
