Pokagon Trail Challenge Cancelled

Hey Trail Runners:

It is with much disappointment, that our team at Epic Racing Events has made the decision to cancel our race this year due to the response to Covid-19.  We did explore the other options of postponing to a later date or attempting to hold a virtual race at the park, but in the end none of those options seemed viable.  Over the next few days, each participant will need to make a quick and easy decision of either receiving a refund of their race fee or defer your entry to next years race?  As expected we cannot lock in a date right now but we be working to secure a date in the same calendar time frame as this year.  We appreciate your patience and understanding in this process.  Please send any direct questions to racedirector@epicracingevents.com.  

Mike Else, Executive Race Director

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date in 2021 once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

When we have received all requests we will expedite your refund as soon as possible.
