Good Evening Runners, 

As many of you may know, we have chosen to postpone the Green Day Gallop due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be sure to keep you informed. At this time, if you would prefer a refund we are happy to assist you.  We continue to encourage you to stay active, get outside for fresh air, and do what you can to stay healthy. We would still love to see your running or training photos  tag @aktivesoles and use #getaktivestayaktive for a chance to win a pair of St. Patrick's day themed socks! Please email events@aktivesoles.com for any question, comments or refund requests.
