Over the past few weeks, we have spent many hours considering how to move forward with the 2020 Smyrna Village 10k, and to put on a great event that is fun and safe for our runners that meets the guidelines and requirements of the CDC and local authorities. One fact became abundantly clear - even with the best team and today's best plan - there is no certainty that state and local authorities will allow the race to occur, or occur in a way that provides a great race experience. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Smyrna Village 10K scheduled for Saturday, November 14.
All registered participants will have three options to choose from;
1. Defer your registration to the 2021 race (to be held in November, 2021, exact date TBD)
2. Donate your entry fee to the club and the many groups it helps
3. Request a refund (net of Runsignup.com fees).
Please send an email to email@example.com no later than Saturday, August 15th letting us know your decision. If you choose option 1, we will send a confirmation and notify you once registration opens for the 2021 event so you can register using your deferred entry. If you choose option 3, refunds will be processed through Runsignup within 7-10 business days.
While we hate to cancel the Smyrna Village 10K this year, safety always comes first, and the health and wellbeing of our runners and fans and a great race experience are first and foremost. Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!
