Hello Sandbar Half Marathon and 5K racers
Out of an abundance of caution with the current COVID-19 situation, we have decided to change to a
virtual race for our Sandbar Half Marathon & YMCA 5K.
You can run or walk between June 20, 2020, and June 26, 2020, then submit your time on runsignup.com
Keep in mind that the decision to change to a Virtual event of this size is not an easy call for us as race
directors and we are listening to government officials to make sure the safety of the running community
and the general public is put first.
The Virtual race will go like this:
- 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!
