Race Cancellation

It is highly unlikely that the Owl Creek Chase will be cancelled due to weather or snow conditions, but that possibility does exists. Under such conditions, every effort will be made to hold the race, but the director reserves the right to delay, shorten or even cancel the event. Because we will have incurred all the race costs prior to the race, there will be no refunds due to cancellation.
