    What are your criteria for canceling the race?
    By definition, all unforeseeable events or occurrences that may affect the Sunset Santa 5K cannot be succinctly defined. The RCoC acknowledges that the event is in late November and is completely unpredictable in North Texas. As such, the Sunset Santa 5K generally shall occur come rain, snow, or shine because RCoC understands the training and expense participants have invested in competing in our race and training. However, if runner safety becomes an issue we will cancel the race.
    Can I get a refund?
    If you decide not to participate or the race is canceled,  RCoC will not provide refunds to participants, sponsors, vendors, or others who have expended funds on the race. The Sunset Santa 5K requires an extensive amount of planning and pre-event expenses that include proper permitting, course control, and the purchase of shirts and race awards.

    Can the event be delayed or postponed due to inclement weather?
    It is not possible for us to delay or postpone our race by even an hour or two.  The goal of the Sunset Santa 5K is for our runners to participate in our run and stay in the downtown area to enjoy the fine dining, shopping venues.  We cannot hamper the small business owners or in downtown Rowlett by closing down the streets any longer than agreed.
