We regret having to cancel the Earth Day 5K and Mile races but are certain you understand why we had to take this action.  We hope you will run with us again in the future.  You are provided two options regarding your registration fee below.

Here Are Your Options:

We sincerely appreciate your registration for the Earth Day 5K and Mile and regret having to cancel it.  We will refund your registration fee but we are giving you this option to allow the Foundation to retain your fee to offset our up front costs of the race and more importantly, permit the development of signage in the park describing its historical conversion from a landfill into our current city park.  The Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit entity and your donation will be certified as provided with no receipt of goods or services

We understand & hope you can join us next time.  We hope you understand the credit back to your credit card will take several days to process and will be the full registration fee but cannot include the transaction fee.
