The Eleventh Annual Pilgrim Run 5K on Thanksgiving Day is coming back to Hyde Park this fall! While it's hard to be sure what the COVID situation will be come November, we are planning an in-person event for Thanksgiving Day, 2021.
At the Pilgrim Center, we support our community. And we feel the safest path for this year's 5K is to require proof of vaccination for all in-person participants. We know it will be an inconvenience and more work on our side, but we want to do our part to say goodbye to COVID-19 in 2021!
Please note: ALL IN-PERSON REGISTRANTS 12 and older* MUST EITHER: 1) BE FULLY VACCINATED AND SUBMIT PROOF OF VACCINATION VIA A PHOTOGRAPH OF THEIR COVID-19 VACCINATION CARD, OR 2) BE UNVACCINATED AND WEAR A MASK FOR THE ENTIRE EVENT. This can be emailed to [email protected]. If you do not submit a photograph of your vaccination card at registration, we will contact you to request one. ALL PRE-REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS MUST SUBMIT PROOF OF VACCINATION BY WEDNESDAY, NOV. 24, 7:00 P.M. OR THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK FOR THE ENTIRE EVENT.
We will be confirming vaccinations and registering people at our drive-through Packet Pick Up on Wednesday, Nov. 24 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and at the race on Thanksgiving Day, but if you do not wish to wear a mask for the duration of the event, YOU MUST BRING YOUR PROOF OF VACCINATION IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY PROVIDED IT.
Of course we're keeping the virtual option, too. If you are NOT vaccinated, please consider this option. We look forward to next year when, hopefully, none of this will be necessary! That means you can join us in Hyde Park to run the race with your friends and family, OR you can participate virtually, however YOU feel most comfortable.
Register today, and sign up for our email list here, or like us on Instagram or Facebook @pilgrimrunkc to stay up-to-date on race details.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Community Programs of the Pilgrim Center.
