    We have a No refund policy. If you are unable to participate in the event, or the event is cancelled, you can still receive your shirt and medal. You can switch to virtual by running the race on your own time and on your own course. If you can’t make the event you are responsible for picking up your shirt and medal at packet pick up. We will not cancel for cold, rain drizzle, or snow. The only cause for cancellation would be hazardous and adverse weather conditions (ice, severe winds, lightning, heavy rain showers, thunderstorms, etc). We will try our best to reschedule the race first. If cancellation is necessary, we will do our best to inform you via email, announcements and posts on Dilbert Sports Running Club , and on our website at Dilbert Sports © . Any shirts that have not been picked up at packet pick-up on race day are open for late registration participants. If you want to guarantee that your shirt will be available, you need to pick up your packet at one of the packet pick up locations/times. If you're an member of Dilbert Sports Running Club at https://localraces.com/dilbertsports you may request a full refund for any and all races hosted by Dilbert Sports.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
