If the Lakeland Runners Club needs to cancel the race, participants will be refunded their race entry fee.If you can't attend the race, please initiate a registration transfer instead of just giving your bib to someone else.

Transfers must be completed by Tuesday, October 29.The LRC is not responsible for identifying individuals for the exchange.
