Good news, runners: This year's rained-out Statesman Capitol 10,000 will not be a total loss.
Race officials announced Wednesday that all 2019 registrants will be receiving a unique code to register free for the 2020 Cap10K when registration opens on June 3.
"Registration for the 43rd Cap10K will open to the public on June 3, 2019. On that date, you, a 2019 registrant, will receive an email that contains a unique, one-time, single-use link that will allow you to register free for the April 5, 2020 race," race director Jeff Simecek wrote. The offer expires after July 1.
Race officials had announced last month that, though the 2019 race would not be rescheduled or refunded, the full financial donation would be made to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, the race beneficiary. HAAM will also be the beneficiary for the 2020 race.
The 43rd Cap10K will be held April 5, 2020.
