As most of you know, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach for 2020 has been cancelled. Efforts to postpone the race until later in the summer have proven unsuccessful and therefore the next event will be held in April 2021.
Because of this, the Grand Prix Foundation events scheduled around the race have also been cancelled for 2020. This includes the Grand Prix Foundation 5K, which was scheduled for April 5.
In order to accommodate our valued customers and supporters, we are offering three opportunities for those who registered for the 5K event. Registrants should have received an e-mail and a form to fill out with the following details. If you did not receive your letter and form, please contact us at [email protected].
Option 1: You may elect to use the funds paid for registration/entry to donate directly to the Grand Prix Foundation and its recipient charities. Individuals who select this option will receive a 2020 5K Participant Medal as a “thank you” from the Foundation. Please include your name, address and telephone number for this option so that your medal may be mailed to you.
Option 2: You may roll over your funds paid to 2021 and use them for payment/registration to the 2021 Grand Prix 5K. Your name(s) will be kept in a separate database showing paid entry for the next event.
Option 3: You may elect to take a full refund, minus the processing fee you paid when you signed up. If you select this option, you will receive your funds in a return credit against the credit card used for entry.
We are obviously saddened by the cancellation of the Grand Prix 5K, but assure you that we will be back in 2021 to once again provide activities supporting the local charities of Long Beach in conjunction with the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Thank you for your understanding as well as your support of the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach.
