Race update!

Hi everyone,

We wanted to give you an update on the Hillbender. At this time we are aiming for a new date of 5/30 but that will of course depends on the approvals by local health departments, etc... If we have to cancel the race, we will provide you with the option of a full refund or having your race fee stay as a donation to the hospital (as this is a charity event). In the meantime, stay safe, healthy and remember to practice smart social distancing!
