War Pony 5K Cancelled

After much consideration and out of concern for the safety and health of our runners, volunteers, and spectators, we have made the decision to cancel the War Pony 5K scheduled for May 16, 2020 due to the uncertainty of closures regarding COVID-19.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.  We look forward to seeing you at next years event. 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to next years event date once it is set, 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.
