FFFM Rescheduled to June 20th, 2021

New Date: June 20th, 2021

Hello All!

The Management team at The Parklands has decided that their trail system will be too wet to hold a race this Sunday. The decision was made on Wednesday (by The Parklands) prior to any actual rainfall. Parklands offered us an alternative route in Broad Run, but it was 60% on pavement.

We have pleaded our case vehemently, but it falls on deaf ears. While we completely disagree with their decision, we cannot override their wishes.

We will hold this race as soon as possible, but it will be at another trail location. We are scouring for permits at this time. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience. If you are unable to make a new date, we can issue a refund. We will still be holding the virtual race May 9th-May 16th; event transfer instructions below.

Staying in the race: Your registration will automatically go towards the new summer date--which we are working on securing. More info to come next week!

Requesting a refund: To request a refund, please e-mail mckenzie@dcracetiming.com

Switching to the virtual race: Participants will be able to switch their race registration by navigating to the RunSignUp profile and clicking on "Forecastle Foundation 5 Miler" in their upcoming events. After clicking on "Manage Registration", scroll to the bottom of the page to find "Transfer Event". There you will be able to transfer into the virtual race. Times must be submitted by June 26th here.

If you'd like to defer to another event: please send us an e-mail, and we will create a custom code for race registration. 

Here Are Your Options:

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

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

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

Happy Trails
