Heels and Hills Cancellation Notice Posted on Main Page of Website May 3 at 3:40 am:
As of 3:40 a.m. on Sunday, May 3, the city of Irving and Dallas County are under significant weather advisory. On our final course pass right now, we were caught in the severe thunderstorms and hail and the streets of Irving are flooded.
Communication with public officials and medical support for the event and monitoring of national weather services has been ongoing as we reviewed our options. Our primary concern is for the safety of all our participants and volunteers. Regretfully, the decision has been made to cancel the event. Delaying the race is not an option because numerous weather sources consistently indicate this weather pattern may continue and potentially worsen throughout the day and into Sunday afternoon.
More information will be available in the coming days.
This has been a very difficult decision for us to make, and we appreciate your ongoing support of Heels and Hills. Please stay safe!
