Due to severe heat expected on August 2nd, ORRC has chosen to postpone our 45th Annual Dual Duel and ORRC Mile events to Thursday August 10th. All other details of the event remain the same. Online registration is open through midnight August 8th – click here.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING DUAL DUEL:
In light of record high temperatures forecasted and in the interest of public safety, the ORRC Dual Duel will be postponed until Thursday, August 10th, 2017. ORRC has consulted with medical professionals, and despite any amount of cooling preparations we have arranged, it will simply be unsafe to hold this event in the excessive heat forecasted for race day.
The event will now take place at the same time and venue, on Thursday, August 10th, at Catlin Gabel School, With the ORRC Mile heats beginning at 6:00 pm and the Dual Duel +10k at 7:00. We will still finish under the lights around 9:30.
We will also have cool towels and misting stations available for all participants, in addition to lots of water and shade.
While we would love to see every participant on the new date, we know that will not be possible for everyone; therefore, ORRC would like to offer you one of the following three options:
> Participants may run as planned on the new date.
> Participants may choose to have their registration deferred to another ORRC race of their choice up to a 10k and before August 31, 2018.
> Participants may request a refund.
If you have already registered for the event, you will receive an email from the race director very soon with more details on the event’s new date. We will, therefore, keep online race registration open through Tuesday, August 8th.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. I look forward to seeing you at your next ORRC event.
– Daniel Brewer, Race Director
