Charles Boehm started this petition to Houston Marathon Committee

My son and entered into the Houston half marathon that was scheduled for January 2020. This will be our first ever race, neither of us are built for running and we’ve been training hard just to make sure we have the experience of crossing a real finish line together as father and son.

Due to Covid-19 the Houston Marathon Committee has had to cancel the race. While the need to keep to the community safe is important and I understand the need to cancel the event, the only options offered to race participants is to do a "virtual race", defer entry to the next year or two or "donate" the entry fees we've already paid to the committee.

I know we've all had losses and hardships due to Covid-19, with most of them being far more serious than cancelled sporting event. But I do not think that the Houston Marathon Committee should be free to not refund participants' entry fees. All Houston Marathon participants should be offered the option of getting a full refund.
