Dear racers,

It is with great sadness that we bring this news. The County Parks Deptartment has informed us that the parks will remain closed indefinitely. There is no electrical power on the Cathedral Pines property at this time and it is not an immediate priority to correct that. We are left with no choice but to cancel the race for 2012.

Please understand that we tried to secure a postponement date to no avail. We are as disappointed as you all are. This is our chance, as racers, to be on the other side and spectate. We are working on reimbursements from our vendors as this is written. We appreciate your patience with us these past couple weeks. We are working on refunds. Stay tuned!

Do not despair! The park WILL reopen at some point.

There WILL be a SOMETHING WICKED 6 Hour Race in 2013.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Dearest race family,

We are sure everyone is aware of what happened here on Long Island. Hurricane Sandy ravaged the island and we are still suffering from repercussions as we write this. The county government has closed all county parks, including Cathedral Pines. All county parks department personnel have been absorbed by other government agencies to work at correcting Hurricane Sandy's aftermath.

There is no other venue to accommodate our event and all of you. We have assessed the damage to the trail and are confident that we can quickly get the park race ready. Unfortunately, if we can't enter the property, we cannot fix it.

We realize how many of you were looking forward to racing on 11/17, but it simply will not be possible. We are making the call now as we are out of time to prepare for you all next week. We also want to give you all ample time to deal with your travel situations. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this causes you. We are just as upset at this news as you are.

That being said, we are working diligently at a postponement date. This date will fall in 2012. You will all be given a hefty heads up before the new date. Please join our email list if you are not on it by CLICKING HERE.

Also, be sure to join our FB group. All of our correspondence will be emailed to you and posted on Facebook.

We are not letting you out of this that easily.
