No Refunds: The Santa’s North Pole Dash requires an extensive amount of planning and pre-event expenses that include proper permitting, course control, and the purchase of food and beverages, shirts, and race awards. As such, if a race is cancelled, GSTCCC will not provide refunds to participants, sponsors, vendors, or others who have expended funds on the race.

Circumstances for Cancellation or Postponement: By definition, all unforeseeable events or occurrences that may affect the Santa’s North Pole Dash cannot be succinctly defined. GSTCCC acknowledges that its events are in East Central Missouri where cold and icy days are common in the winter. As such, the Santa’s North Pole Dash generally shall occur come rain, snow or shine because GSTCCC understands the training and expense participants have invested in competing in our race and training.

However, sometimes unusual events — weather and otherwise — demand changes. The health and safety of our athletes, other participants and the community at large, are the overarching criteria GSTCCC will follow in deciding whether a race should be cancelled.

Delays & Postponements:

It is not possible for us to delay or postpone our race by even an hour or two.  The goal of the Santa’s North Pole Dash is for our athletes to participate in our run and stay in the historic district to enjoy the fine dining and shopping venues available during the holiday season.  We cannot hamper the small business owners in Historic St. Charles by closing down the streets during their busiest retail season to conduct our race.
