Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, the CDC’s recommendation of no events of 50-plus people for the next two months, and the government’s rolling mandate around no public gatherings, we’ve been forced to reschedule the Margarita Half Marathon & 5K, originally scheduled for May 3rd, to a new date of June 14, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.

In order to make things as easy as possible for you during this difficult time, we’ve automatically transferred your registration to the new event date of June 14, 2020. No action is required on your end.

The entire country is being severely impacted by this pandemic, and unfortunately we’ve already put a year’s worth of time and resources into setting up the event, so no refunds or transfers will be offered. We appreciate your support and cooperation during this serious health emergency.

As a thanks for your understanding during these trying times, we’ll send you a special deal for the 2021 event once registration opens!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected].
On behalf of the Loco Races team, we look forward to running with you later this year!
