Do you think they will still do the 5k?
Since they appear to be refunding money ONLY for the half and marathon, though even that is not clear, these jokers may be trying to pull off the "5K Marathon." My guess is they may had had a good number of entrants for that and this gets them some cash to offset their losses. Plus it cannot be that hard to do the 5K in comparison to the marathon since the course is so much shorter. I still suspect that it will be screwed up, but ...
That said, I think even the 5K runners were to pick up packets at the still unscheduled expo. That would seem to indicate that the 5K is off.
At the same time the race countdown timer continues to run which indicates the race is on...
I don't quite get why the Indy Star's topix forums are not buzzing about this, my guess is that maybe not many people signed up for them, or not many know the race is off. The race seems to claim around 15,000 runners, that's a lot of runners, why isn't there a bigger outcry there?
Classic train wreck.
