Welcome to the Crossroads of America, Vandalia, Ohio. Whether you're looking for a summertime showdown or a family event, join us!
To our runners, walkers, friends, and community members,
It is with great sadness that we have to cancel the 3rd Annual Crossroads 5K. Simply put, it is not our choice. You only have a race if you have a permit to produce a race and unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic, we lost our permit to host this event. We completely understand and support the decision made by the City of Vandalia and understand how an event of our size doesn't fit the current guidelines.
That said, here's what we're doing. If you have not registered and would still like to be a part of our virtual event, we would love to have you! Simply hit the X in the top right, click sign up, and register!
For those who have registered already, you will have four options that are listed below. Please note that you have until midnight on June 7th to choose your option. If you have not chosen an option by this time you will automatically be placed into the 2020 Crossroads 5K Virtual event. This date is in place so that we can order the correct quantities of medals and shirts to avoid waste and losing more money this year.
1) Switch your physical registration to a virtual registration and we will mail you your tank top and medal!
2) Defer your entry to 2021 at no cost. You will receive nothing this year but your entry will already be paid for in 2021!
3) Gift your registration fees and we will donate 100% of your entry to the Vandalia Recreation Fund. You will receive no items for this but we thank you for supporting the Vandalia Rec Fund!
4) A no questions asked refund policy. We have carefully watched the situation over the past few months and outside of a few early expenses, we have carefully saved the money of those who registered allowing us to offer this option.
We'll end by stating that we get the frustrations everyone feels. The Advanced Running Project is owned and operated by a competitive runner who longs to race and to produce races. Thus this is obviously not the end result we wanted either. Know that we will be back though and we appreciate your continued support in the interim. Until then, keep running because running isn't cancelled!
