Hello Monarchs In Motion Nation!

By now you’ve heard about the challenge with our original race date of October 15, 2016.  The race team has made the very difficult decision to not have the race and have decided to cancel the 9th Annual Monarchs in Motion 5K race/walk.

That said, the race t-shirts are printed and we are going to make t-shirt pick up available at the following times:

> Friday, 10/14 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM in the Adult Room at St Mary Magdalene

> After each mass this weekend, Saturday at 5:00, Sunday at 9:00 and 10:45.Keep in mind those are Mass start times       and  pick will be available after Mass.

As the race registration waiver states, we do not provide refunds for the race.  This specific scheduling event was outside of our control.  However we want to offer ½ price registration for the next race, the 9¾ Annual Monarchs In Motion 5K, which we are targeting for Saturday, May 13th, 2017.  As we get closer to finalizing that date and getting the necessary approvals, etc…we’ll share the details on how that will work.

We’re so grateful for the continued support and encouraging words we’ve received during this challenging time. 

We all agree that it’s much easier to have the race, than to cancel it!

As always, you can reach out with questions at mike5kgrace@gmail.com
Thanks again!

Mike Grace – Race Director, Monarchs In Motion 5K.
