Description

Dear Katy Back to School 5k Participants,

Your race committee has been hard at work to find a viable path toward completion of the race as planned.  It is with great regret that we have to cancel the race.  We will not be able to secure a safe traffic situation among other impediments.  Safety officers who would normally protect us along the course are needed in the flood recovery efforts.  Also, our volunteer staff along the course has been affected by the flood and will, in large part, be required to attend to their personal situations.  Your safety is our greatest concern.  Without adequate protections, that cannot be ensured.

Our other concern is for the members of our community who have lost so much in this ongoing flood disaster.  We cannot, in good conscience, demand the diversion of resources needed for flood recovery to our event.

This decision comes after great consideration on our part.  We understand your disappointment as registrants of our race in this regard.  We share that disappointment.

Please rest assured that your contributions and donations will be used as planned to support our primary beneficiary, Katy Students Run.

Race shirts will be available to all registered participants.  We think the race shirt will be a memorable souvenir of this moment in our community's life.  We hope you will take the opportunity to pick up your shirt and to wear it proudly.  You can pick up your shirt on Saturday, September 2nd from 12 - 6pm in the Villagio courtyard.  Look for the Katy Area Running Club tent in the courtyard outside the Good Times Running Company store entrance (Suite 650). 

Also, we hope to conduct a community run in the coming days to celebrate our recovery from this disaster.  While this will not be the race event that we originally planned, it will be a chance to gather and run and walk together with the purpose of bringing healing to our local running community.  You'll hear more from us in the coming days about this.

Thank you for your understanding.  We hope that you are all well and safe after such exceptional days.

With best wishes,

The Katy Back to School 5k Race Committee
