The Ghost 'n Goblin™ 5k is all about fun, but this is where we have to be a little strict (for everyone's safety and enjoyment of the event).

Running the Ghost 'n Goblin 5k virtually in 2020 comes with some unique considerations. Participation is at your own risk, and should be done safely according to all applicable state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19. No type of medical or course support is provided by the ORRRC.

Please DO NOT organize groups of runners that exceed recommendations, or run with large groups on the previously used race course.

The Ghost 'n Goblin™ 5k will not issue refunds for race entry fees, nor any other fees associated with the race. Each participant accepts that risk upon paying their entry fee. We will not offer complimentary race entries to a future race. We use all money collected for the race to develop and produce the event (including race supplies, infrastructure, and administration) and the proceeds benefit the non-profit Ohio River Road Runner's Club.

We pledge to make every effort to produce a fair, safe, fun, and exciting event for everyone. Any decisions we make for safety, fairness, or any other reason will not warrant a refund to any participant.
