Due to safety concerns for runners and volunteers related to COVID-19, the 2020 Corryton 'Possum Chase 2-Miler and 8-Miler races have been cancelled. The majority of our race committee and race volunteers are seniors and placing them in any large group setting is not recommended by health guidelines at this time. We are excited to begin our planning for the 2021 Corryton 'Possum Chase 2-Miler and 8-Miler races highlighted by our beautiful race courses, our handcrafted awards, and our biscuits and gravy breakfast. To commemorate this "unique " year we have asked Todd Temple of T2Design to create a special Possum Chase hiatus T-shirt that can be purchased in coming weeks through the RunSignUp web site. Thanks to each of you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Corryton 'Possum Chase in October of next year.
