We are working to reschedule, and we will reach out to you with the new dates. If the new dates are not convenient for you, we will happily offer you a refund.
In addition, 42nd Annual Winterthur Point-to-Point is cancelled. You may roll over your purchase to next year’s race, make your purchase a donation to Winterthur and receive a full tax credit, or receive a full refund. Please direct all requests to Pointemail@example.com.
The Winterthur Garden and walking paths remain open for those looking for peace and beauty in these difficult times. Enchanted Woods is closed as we cannot properly disinfect the area, so please do not play there.
