Runners, volunteers, family and friends,
Due to current federal, state and local guidelines regarding the ongoing threat of Covid-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our race this year. It saddens us to have to do so, but we feel that the health and safety of our community and runners must take precedent over any large events this year.

If you have already registered, we will be happy to refund you, apply it to the virtual run, or apply it to next years race. Please pm us with your decision and we will process your request.
