This Race Has Been Cancelled

Greetings! 

We are very sad to report this race has been cancelled. Due to some ongoing logistical hiccups, we cannot execute the event as we had hoped. The American Cancer Society believes in providing the absolute best customer experience for their volunteers and event participants. Since we cannot do that at this time, cancellation is the best alternative. We will return all registration fees, unless you indicate differently below. Our many apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you. 

Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting: stacey.clark@cancer.org

Many Thanks, 

Stacey

 

Here Are Your Options:

1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will at some point hear the words, "you have cancer." However, thanks to the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society, more lives are being saved through ground-breaking research and early detection. By converting your race fee to a donation, you can help us keep our mission alive and one day create a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
