Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
Dear Huguenot 3 Miler Registrant,
Based upon the recent round of snow and the upcoming nights (Fri and Sat) in the mid-teens, we believe that the course at Huguenot Park will be unsafe to run the upcoming 3 Miler on Sunday. After much discussion, we have decided to cancel the race and refund the registration fees for all paid registrants. Refunds will be issued within the next 7 days. If any entry was paid for in cash or by check, please email email@example.com.
