July 14, 2013
We are sorry to inform you that for the first time in our history and hundreds of events later, RunFit had to cancel the Chunky Monkey Run 2015, which was to be held on Sunday, July 12, 2015 at Valley High School.
Following the consultation with local authorities and event organizers, it was determined that the extensive lightning and rain caused unsafe conditions for the race. The decision to cancel was for the safety of all our participants, volunteers and staff. Safety is our number one priority, and even though we are extremely disappointed to cancel the event, we felt it was the most responsible decision.
We would like to extend to all of our registered participants for the Chunky Monkey Run 2015 an opportunity to run in our Dam to Dam Run scheduled for August 30, 2015. The Dam to Dam Run includes a 10K, 5K and Kids K. The participant information from your Chunky Monkey Run will be used as your registration information. There will be no need to “re-register,” Chunky Monkey participants will receive a RunFit t-shirt for their participation in the Dam to Dam Run.
We would like to thank all of our participants for their understanding, as well as our team of staff, volunteers and sponsors for all of their hard work in trying to make this event happen.
On behalf of those who live out of town, we would like to apologize for the cancellation, especially to those of you who may have difficulty attending our alternate event: Dam to Dam Run. Unfortunately, these circumstances were beyond our control. If you are unable to attend the Dam to Dam Run, please contact us.
Please note: We will provide you with a new timing chip and bib number at packet pickup:
