Due to growing concerns over the coronavirus and Crowds, we have added a virtual race option for the half marathon, 10K and 5K. The race will still be held on Sunday, May 3rd 2020. The start time will not be enforced. Run any time on that date and submit a photo of your distance and time for results to be uploaded onto the results page. Runners will still receive a t-shirt and finishers medal for completing!
The health of our city and all participants, volunteers, spectators and sponsors is our number one priority!
We will stay vigilant and make any additional changes/updates as needed.
