For Dr. Gann's Diet of Hope Cinco de Mayo 10K, 5K that was scheduled for May 2, 2021, SAR has decided this race will be VIRTUAL ONLY.
This decision was not any easy one, but the SAR Board and Race Director are taking this preventive measure to ensure the safety of the community that we care for so deeply.
We understand the disappointment of those who were as excited as we were to attend this race in person. If you were entered in the 2020 Cinco de Mayo 10K,5K & FitKidz Mile and were moved to the 2021 event, you will not need to pay any additional entry fees. You do need to let us know if you would like to opt into the 2021 virtual race, otherwise we will defer you to the 2022 event.
If you are already registered from 2020 and need to make your deferral or virtual selection please follow the instructions in the following video HERE.
Refunds are not an option per standard SAR policy due to the fact that the event has already incurred expenses leading up to race day.
If you have any questions regarding this, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Note: SAR Members, as long as you are logged into your Run Signup account, a $2 discount will automatically apply when you check out! Email us at email@example.com if you have any issues!
