Hello Potential Registrant,
We have decided to cancel the event. The Running Boom has softened greatly the past 3 years and because of this some races including ours in the fall in Harwich have been hurt by it. There are to many events and it is time for there to be less events.
It has been difficult to maintain a quality race that includes proper and needed safety components such as police, fire,medical & DPW coupled with all of the other necessary components and with diminishing registrants each year. Our event is a nice fall run in a great community and in a different time period having 500 to 600 runners would be wonderful but in todays era the requirements to put on an event are much, much more costly and the requirements much more involved.
We apologize for any inconvenience and let downs – we know its a favorite still for many as it is for us. We will be issuing full refunds to those who have registered including the registration fee within two weeks and we will also be offering all registered a free entry into our 2018 December Bill Rodger Somerville Jingle Bell Run or 2019 February Hyannis Marathon,Half Marathon, 10Km & Marathon Team Relay event as a gift.
In addition, we are honoring the Cape Cod Half Marathon & 10Km Trilogy Series after two races – all who did first 2 races will receive a jacket in February 2019 at Hyannis and the winners will still be rewarded. We will need your unisex jacket size by January 1, 2019.
Lastly, we have made or are in the process of making donations to the Harwich organizations that have been involved in our event, without these great organizations there are no events.
Harwich is a wonderfull community and we.are happy to have been part of it for 10 years.
(**The Cape Cod Half Marathon in Falmouth is a great fall option!)
