2018 Event is Canceled

1:35 p.m., Saturday, November 10, 2018

First and foremost, we want to extend our thoughts and prayers to our neighbors in Butte County as they deal with the effects of the devastation from the fire. Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude is with all the first responders who have worked to keep people and animals safe.

It is with great regret that we must announce the cancellation of tomorrow’s Clarksburg Country Run.

We are considering a postponement of the event to Sunday, January 13th. We would like your input as to whether or not you would attend on that date. Please provide your feedback on this at the short survey located here: https://goo.gl/forms/q86oEeLP8U1f3HWW2

We consider a cancellation a last resort and this was not a decision we took lightly. We had hoped to host the event as planned, and leave the decision to participate up to each athlete.

Unfortunately, conditions have continued to deteriorate, and the forecast for Sunday’s air quality has shifted from orange to red – unhealthy for all groups – and an AQI of 205. This is due to a predicted north wind which will blow in even more smoke.

At this point, it would be unsafe for everyone to be outside in these conditions and we cannot, in good faith, ask our volunteers to be outside in such poor air quality. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff is our top priority.

We understand this probably comes as a disappointment to you, as it does to us. Many community members have worked tirelessly to prepare for tomorrow, just as you have trained for weeks and months leading up to this weekend for your race. Food has been prepared, medals have been purchased, and awards are ready for winners.

Thank you for your understanding. As you can imagine, this was a very difficult decision to make. Additional updates will be forthcoming.
