::ANNOUNCEMENT – RACE POSTPONED::
Runners, Volunteers, & Friends,
It is with great disappointment that we inform you that the 2020 Doggy Dash scheduled for Sunday, March 15th is being postponed.
This decision is based on the recommendation of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to cancel or postpone all mass gatherings in the state. We believe the decision to postpone the event is in the best interest of the health and welfare of the larger community. Click here for a good article on why canceling or postponing events can help stop the spread of the virus.
Based on our registration guidelines and the fact that the majority of the expenses for the event having already been incurred, we will be unable to provide refunds for the race. As soon as more information is made available at the National, State, and/or Local level, we will reschedule the race for an appropriate time.
Everyone will still receive their shirt and medal, but it will be at the rescheduled date of the event. Anyone that is not able to attend the rescheduled date once announced will be able to run a “virtual race” and pick up their medal and shirt locally. We are also increasing the number of shirts and medals so more runners can participate and receive the full award packet. There will also be a few other fun additions to make the event even better.
Thank you all for your understanding.
J.D. & Holly Mixon
