FAQ for the 2021 event

Q: Will there be a 2021 Running USA conference?
A: Registration is currently open for the 2021 annual conference to be held in New Orleans February 14-16, 2021. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, along with our host hotel and the city of New Orleans. The health and safety of our attendees is our primary focus as we continue with planning.  

Q: When will a final decision be made about hosting an in person conference for 2021?
A: We anticipate a decision being made in late fall which will, in part, depend on the public policy around  hosting large indoor events in the city of New Orleans and associated travel restrictions. 

Q: What if I have already registered but the in-person conference is cancelled?
A: If the in-person conference is cancelled, and there is no virtual option, a full refund of your registration fees will be given. If the conference shifts to a virtual event, you will be given a refund for the difference in the fee from in-person to virtual or you’ll be able to attribute that credit to others in your organization should you wish to do so.

Q: If there is an in-person conference but I am not comfortable attending, will I get a refund?
A: As is our standard procedure in regards to conference registration, refunds will not be offered if the event is held, whether in-person or virtual.

*Current pricing will be held until December 1, 2020.
