Given the current global contingency of, COVID -19, or Coronavirus, and the orders/instructions issued by the federal and state governments for the prevention of COVID19, the sporting, civic and cultural events of our organization Cafecito Caliente, are cancelled until further notice.
The hope is that everything will return to a sense of normalcy and the Cafecito Caliente 5k Run/Walk will still be held Saturday, September 12, 2020 in the Cesar E. Chavez Plaza in Old Town, Lansing, Michigan. Passionate runners are rarely stopped. Rain, wind, snow, cold, or bad knees are merely obstacles for the passionate runner. It is our hope at Cafecito Caliente that nothing like this, will ever get in our way ever again.
We would like to offer a complete refund.
The safety and health of our members, our team, and our entire community are of the utmost priority to us. Therefore, the following event organized by Cafecito Caliente, will be cancelled.
We appreciate your understanding, reiterating our priority commitment to guarantee the safety of each and every one of our participants and the general public.
