Just received an email a few moments ago from the race organizers for the Troy Odyssey Half Marathon, which had been scheduled for November 19 in Troy, Alabama:
Dear Previous Race Participants and Supporters,
With deep regret the Troy Odyssey Half Marathon and 10K Committee would like to inform you we will not be conducting a 2011 event. As members of the committee have had unforeseen obstacles and scheduling conflicts, we do not feel we have the time, energy, and man-power needed to devote to an event of this size, at this time.
As last year’s event was a great success and we were able to help several organizations in our community, we are very sorry we will not be able to have the race this year. We sincerely hope the event can return in 2012 in bigger and better form and we hope you will once again consider participating.
We intend to keep all email addresses and will inform you if and when the event is scheduled in the future.
Once again, thank you to everyone who has given us their support over the past two years. It has been greatly appreciated and unforgotten.
Troy Odyssey Half Marathon & 10K Committee
