The Seaton Soaker - CANCELLED
It will come as no surprise that Seaton Soaker will be cancelled this year. My permits from the City and the School Board have been cancelled.
At this point there are 4 options to entertain as we deal with this cancellation:
- Postpone to a later date
Seaton Soaker is part of the OUTrace series. I cannot postpone to a date later in the year without negatively affecting a current OUTrace event.
This is not sustainable, as the majority of the registration money has been spent buying the swag and medals.
- Defer to next year
This will not be possible due to personal reasons.
- Virtual Race
This is the option that we will be hosting this year. We will be having a virtual race between May 1 and May 31. All registrants can run their distance and submit their results. Stay tuned for more explicit details on this over the next couple of weeks. All registrants will receive their medals and the swag they ordered. Hats, socks, buffs and t-shirts will be mailed after the virtual race.
Of course I am very disappointed having to cancel, but these are extraordinary times. What we are going through is historic, and I'm sure we are all looking forward to getting back to some form of normalcy.
Stay tuned for more details on the virtual race.
