Description

COVID 19 Update: Race Postponed to 2021

Dear Runners,

It was our sincere hope that in postponing the Portland 10 Miler to September that we would be able to host the event in 2020. We have have put in many hours formulating event protocols and safety measures. But, we have come to the painful conclusion as a staff and with the City of Portland that it is simply not safe or realistic to host an event of this size ten weeks from now.

All registrants will be automatically rolled into next year's Portland 10 Miler which is scheduled for Sunday, April 25, 2021 pending permit approval. There is no further action needed on your part.

As always, the safety and health of our runners, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We’re thankful for each and every one of our participants and your support and understanding as we work towards sunnier days on the road together again.

Sincerely,
The Gray Matter Marketing Team
Matt and Drew

MISSION: A portion of each registration fee will be donated directly to our non-profit partner Spurwink who provides behavioral health and education services for children, adults and families.

EXTREME WEATHER POLICY

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule "rain dates". Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
