The Trafigura Run for the House will be held rain or shine. Cancellation will occur only in the instance of flooding, thunderstorms, ice, street closures determined by The City of Houston, or other unforeseeable act of God. If the event is cancelled, registered participants will be notified by email. Notifications to the Ronald McDonald website and social media feeds will also be made. Ronald McDonald House Houston is truly grateful for ALL who support the event in any manner. Due to the fundraising nature of the event, Ronald McDonald House Houston is unable to refund event sponsors, race registrants, or donors in the instance of cancellation.
