Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K Postponement Options

New Date: TBD

Hello everyone,

Obviously 2020 hasn't started the way we all expected it would.   As of this time we have been told by KSU that we cannot run the Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K on May 23rd.  We are working with KSU right now to get a date in September that we can make work and still run this race in person when it is safe to do so. 

We know that when you signed up for this race you did so expecting the race to be on May 23rd.  We have always had a no refund policy but with this current situation we just don't feel like it would be fair to force that upon you.  We would love it if you decided to either run the new date with us or switch to the virtual but understand if that isn't what you want to do.  We already have the medals ordered and they will be here in the next couple weeks. The only thing we wouldn't be able to get to you right away are the shirts or the swag you bought.  We will be ordering that as the new race date gets closer.  Please reach out with any questions. 


Ben Sigle


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 can run the distance virtually anytime from right now until the event date this fall.  Medals will be available by the end of May but shirts won't be ready until fall.

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.  You signed up for a race that was supposed to be done on May 23.  This darn Covid stuff has spoiled our plans.  We hope you can join us next time.
