Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
So, who's ready to elect a new President. Obviously, Mother Nature is not crazy about the idea of me being President of the Club. The first race after the election was run in a downpour (Toy Run), Banquet had to be re-scheduled due to snow and the February Meeting had to be cancelled due to Thunder Snow.
Now the Sweetheart 8K will not happen. As anyone that has seen me running before daybreak or riding my bike early will know I take safety seriously. Due to accumulated snow and ice, the course for the Sweetheart 8K is currently not runnable. With the number of runners registered and the lack of any substantial meltdown between now and Saturday morning, there is no way of running a race that would be safe for those running.
The Club takes this decision very seriously. We looked at some alternatives but did not have any viable options. The race schedule becomes too full after this weekend for us to reschedule.
There will be no packet pick-up or t-shirts distributed. We will refund your entry fee through a credit to your credit card or a check if you paid by check. This will take us a week or so to process, I apologize about the amount of time to refund, but please keep in mind that we are a all-volunteer organization and do not employ a back-office staff to deal with such transactions.
Thanks to everyone that registered for the race, the volunteers planning to work the race and our great race director for this event.
If you have questions, comments, concerns or a light-hearted thought (I could use one), please feel free to e-mail me. President@rrrc.org.
