March 18, 2020
We have been closely monitoring the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. After careful consideration of the CDC recommendations for large gatherings and guidance from the National Steeplechase Association, we have decided to cancel the Radnor Hunt Races for this year. While this was a difficult decision for us all, we feel it was a necessary and responsible one to make at this time. The health and safety of all Race Day participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority. We look forward to welcoming you all back next year as we celebrate the 90th Radnor Hunt Races on May 15, 2021.
For those who have previously made purchases for the Radnor Hunt Races this year, we would like to offer you one of the below three options. To assist us in servicing all of our patrons, we ask that you please fill out the below form by May 1 in order to specify your selection.
Option 1: Convert your purchase to a donation
To help offset the expenses incurred by canceling this year’s race, we ask you to please consider converting your purchase to a 100% tax-deductible donation to the Brandywine Conservancy. Known as "Racing for Open Space,” the Radnor Hunt Races has supported the open space and clean water initiatives of the Brandywine Conservancy since 1980. It is the largest single day fundraising event for the Conservancy each year, and as such, the funds raised are relied on to continue its critical work throughout this region.
Option 2: Rollover your purchase to 2021
Rollover your 2020 ticket purchase to next year’s Radnor Hunt Races to be held on May 15, 2021. By choosing this option, all purchases made for the Races in 2020 will be applied to next year’s event in support of the Brandywine Conservancy, and will apply to the same area of the course you previously purchased.
Option 3: Refund
In lieu of the above options, you can request a refund for your purchase. Please note: while we will refund all items purchased, any and all processing fees are non-refundable.
Whichever option you select must be received and submitted via this form by May 1, 2020. If we do not receive your request by this date, your purchase from this year will automatically be applied as a fully tax-deductible donation to the Brandywine Conservancy as outlined in Option 1 above. Due to the scale of the event, all transactions will take approximately 30 days to complete and issue.
We extend our deepest appreciation for your patience, support and understanding as we continue to navigate this unprecedented situation. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021 for the 90th Radnor Hunt Races.
