This would have been my third time running this race, but the organizers botched their response to severe weather conditions so badly that I won’t be back.

While local authorities were begging people to stay home days in advance, Kaiser Half first tried to change the course start/finish locations in an email that didn’t reach all participants. Then less than 2 hours before the start time, they announced (again, email only) that the Half was cancelled but the 10k and 5k would proceed. And less than *30 minutes* before the start, a full cancellation email went out.

Hundreds of runners were already in place. Others were at the original start line, alone. Any competent person who cared about runner safety would have cancelled the event the moment local authorities told them to change the course. The last blow was organizers waiting 2+ days to reach out with no apology for endangering people, butna callous reminder that everything was nonrundable. Keep your shirt, I won’t be back.
