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.
