directors and we are listening to government officials to make sure the safety of the running community
and the general public is put first.

- Your registration will be automatically changed into the virtual event. (If you do not want to do
the virtual race we can defer your registration to our 2021 event )
- From June 20th –June 26th you will have 1 week to complete the distance you signed up for using
any route you want.
- We have enabled “Racejoy “for you to track your results and get an actual online placing with the real course,
alternatively, you can enter your results manually Online on runsignup.com. RESULTS
- More info on using “Race Joy” will be emailed out closer to the event.
- We will mail you a finisher’s medal and an event shirt (USA & Canada only) & a Discount Coupon
code for our 2021 event. ( Please note these will be mailed 2-3 weeks after race)
Thank you so much for your support over this unprecedented time. We look forward to seeing
you at our event next year!
