Please know that RaceAwesome is aware of and actively monitoring the rapidly developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We will be following the protocols set forth by Nassau & Suffolk County, which are derived from the Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization, the US State Department, and the New York Department of Public Health. RaceAwesome will continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and communicate any updates we received to ensure we prioritize the wellbeing and safety of our athletes, staff/volunteers, and their families.
At present, RaceAwesome will move forward with all scheduled events (except the Long Island Marathon & Spring Duathlon
) recommending common-sense safety measures. We understand athletes will use their own discretion with regard to what is best for their families. We strongly recommend reviewing the safe practices outlined in the links provided by our government agencies below.Our REFUND POLICY like nearly everyone else is very clear and you agree to it during registration. "There are No Refunds and entries are Not Transferable"That said, if the race does not go forward on the planned date we will search for a new date and transfer your entry to the new race date. If you cant make that race date your entry will be deferred to the 2021 date. There will be no refunds of actual dollars. If we can't get a new date for the race in 2020, your entry will be deferred to the 2021 date. If you are registering for ANY RaceAwesome Event during these times you need to understand that this is how we will be handling things if dates change etc.
