All Bodies Race Company events proceed rain, shine, snow, or cold.  For that reason, we have a strict no-refund policy.  If you are unable to participate in the event, you can still receive your packet, shirt, and medal, and you simply run the race on your own time on your own course. See our virtual race information for complete details: https://bodiesracecompany.com/virtual-events/

This time of year the weather is iffy, but we will only cancel if our venue requires cancellation, or if there are ice hazards on the roads or course. Due to the time required for permitting we are not typically able to reschedule. If cancellation is necessary we will transfer everyone to virtual!
