The Maryland Department of Natural Resources informed us that HAT Run 2021 must be canceled. They determined the safety concerns were too great to permit the event to be held this March.
We know how disappointing this is for you, because it is for us, too. We’ve put in months of planning and you’ve been putting in the training miles with anticipation that we could have safely held the event on Saturday the 20th of March. That said, we understand and support the DNR’s decision.
While we know it won’t be the same to gather together at Susquehanna State Park and head off through the snowy, rainy, or muddy (who knows?!) starting field, we are currently pursuing alternatives for a “virtual” event. Specifics of how this might materialize are yet unknown, but we promise to keep you posted as we learn more.
We will maintain the existing waiting list on Ultrasignup for the time being in order to communicate with interested runners.
Your Race Directors,
Tim, Ginn, Jeff
