With nearly all community events cancelled or postponed this summer, Eastern States Exposition has decided to cancel its Big 5K Road Race due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. 2020 Big 5K participants have three options for their race entry fee:
- Run Next Year: Roll over your 2020 registration and get guaranteed entry for the 2021 Big 5K, taking place September 4, 2021.
- Donate it to the ESE Foundation: If you know you don't want to run in 2021, you can donate the value of your Big 5K entry fee to the Eastern States Exposition Foundation to be used for future Fair projects, education, and improvements. Donations must be initiated by August 31, 2020, by filling out a 2020 Donation Form. Please email Nancy Delson at NDelson@TheBigE.com with any questions.
- Request a Refund: Full refunds must be requested by August 31, 2020, or your entry will automatically be rolled over for use at the 2021 Big 5K, taking place September 4, 2021. To request a refund, contact Alicia Audet at 413-205-5012 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Office hours for phone requests are Monday through Friday, 9AM to 4PM.
