Bucks 5K Series - CANCELED

Sat April 18 - Sun June 21, 2020 Doylestown, PA US 18901
Bucks Series and Individual Races Canceled for 2020

Dear Friends,
As you well know, the coronavirus pandemic has placed a heavy toll on everyone.  The Bucks 5K Series is no exception.
In a meeting with the Race Directors, and through slow deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Bucks 5K Series.   It will be rescheduled to 2021.  For us, this is devastating!  All of the plans for our 25th anniversary have been sadly scrapped.
We reached this decision based on our belief that all of the races between now and the end of June will not be possible.  We then considered moving the whole schedule to the Fall. However, the logistics of staging 7 races in a period already filled with many races was simply not feasible.
Thank you for your strong support for the Series.  As a result of this cancellation, We will be offering three options to all registered runners as seen below.

1.    We hope that runners will consider making the registration fee a donation to our 501c non-profit organizations. They are all in need of your financial support.  

2.    You may defer your registration to the 2021 Series.

3.    We will refund your registration fee.

We require that you complete your request  by April 3rd.  At that time, we will begin to administer your option.
Stay safe and continue to get outside to run.

Dick Patterson

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 date, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

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.
