Official Cancellation Statement for the 2021 Race 13.1 Raleigh-Fall Race
Announced: Friday, September 3, 2021
Welp, we didn’t think we’d be the bearer of bad news once again, but here we are.
Due to the unique challenges in securing vital resources required to produce a safe and successful race, we’ve made the decision to cancel the Race 13.1 Raleigh-Fall race scheduled to take place on October 2, 2021.
As you’ve likely realized from previous race experiences, it takes hundreds of volunteers, medical support, police and countless other personnel to produce a successful race. These assets have proven difficult to secure in a market where we have two major races – Race 13.1 Raleigh-Fall and the Pendo City of Oaks Marathon – being produced within weeks of each other. We believe it is our responsibility to limit the strain put on our local partners and the Raleigh community during this uniquely challenging time. For that reason, we have decided to cancel Race 13.1 Raleigh-Fall and focus all of our efforts on ensuring the 2021 Pendo City of Oaks Marathon has all the necessary resources to take place safely on November 7, 2021.
This news is probably not what you were expecting. After all, you’ve been training hard to get back to racing with us and we want you to continue your race journey with us this fall at races we’re confident will not experience the same issues. Here are all of your options:
- Continue Your Race Journey with us in either the Pendo City of Oaks Marathon (November 7) or the Race 13.1 Durham (December 4) for FREE. You’ll be sent a unique 100% OFF discount code to apply to your registration for either race. You can run the same distance or switch to another distance for no additional charge.
- Request Race Credit equal to the amount you paid during registration, plus an extra $10 of race credit, that will not expire and can be used for any Capstone Races event.
- Request a Full Refund of your entire registration fee. While we’d love to have you continue your running journey with us, we understand if you choose to receive a refund.
**Please note we will only refund registrations that were purchased using a credit card. If you used race credit for your registration you will be granted that race credit back with the additional 25% of race credit.
No matter what you choose to do with your registration we ask that you let us know by completing the Raleigh-Fall Cancellation Form by Friday, September 17, 2021. All discount codes, race credit and refunds will be processed within 5-7 days of this deadline. Anyone who doesn’t complete the form by September 17, 2021 will automatically receive race credit for their registration.
