Dear friends of the San Diego Crew Classic,
The primary concern of the San Diego Crew Classic is the health and safety of all the members of our community – the athletes, vendors, volunteers, city employees, and attendees. Based on California Governor Gavin Newsom’s and the California Department of Public Health direction that all public events and gatherings over 250 people should be cancelled or postponed, regrettably, we are cancelling the San Diego Crew Classic for April 4-5 2020. CA DPH Notice. Additionally, other states and municipalities have banned gatherings as well as numerous colleges have cancelled all events. While we do not take this step lightly, we feel it is in the best interest of the members of the community and may help to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We recognize this may cause disruption to the plans of many people. We are assured Regatta Central will refund entry fees. Additionally, we will work with Event Brite to refund ticket fees. Finally, concerning various other items such as vendors and alumni tents, we will reach out to make refund arrangements; please be patient with us given this unprecedented situation. While we understand this will have financial impacts to all parties, We hope everyone will recognize the impact to the SDCC and consider providing a donation to the SDCC so this beloved race can be successfully held in future years.
Thank you for your support of the SDCC and patience as we made this decision. Please be safe and take all the recommended precautions to help prevent the spread of this virus. We look forward to seeing you all safe, and well, at the 2021 San Diego Crew Classic March 27-28, 2021. It will be better than ever!
