COVID-19 and Race Update
June 22, 2020
We would like to begin by thanking our runners, local communities, and sponsors for making Rancho Racing what it is today. We appreciate the ongoing support and patience through this unprecedented time. As we continue to navigate around the ever-changing state and federal guidelines, we want to ensure you, we are committed to the safety of our runners, staff, and sponsors.
Rancho Racing was built with the goal of keeping people active and engaged in their local communities. We continue to work diligently with local and state governments to determine our next move, and the possibility of hosting our events this Fall. We understand that some of these decisions may have to be made last-minute which does not make things easy for anyone, so your continued patience is appreciated. To help ease some of these decisions and possible frustration we have put the following into action:
Minimum 30-day notice on any cancellation, postponement, or approval of an event
If you are already registered for an event and we are required to cancel or postpone, we will offer 3 options:
Race transfer to a virtual option, so you can still earn race swag
Race deferment to 2021
Race transfer to a future Rancho Racing event
REFUND POLICY: Unfortunately, we must plan for our races according to the number of athletes registered, so we will not be offering refunds to any event cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19. Although the races may not be allowed to happen in-person, registration monies are allocated for marketing, and event materials, like shirts, medals, bibs, etc.
If a runner prefers to be guaranteed a refund (rather than take one of the above listed options), he/she should consider purchasing race insurance. All our in-person events offer Registration Protection as part of the registration process. We appreciate your understanding in this matter, and hope that this provides some peace of mind to all our runners.
Please continue to check back in with us before each event. Once we get updates from each governing body where races are located, we will be updated our race webpages.
Thank you again everyone for your continued support and patience. Please stay safe and healthy. See you on the trails real soon!
