Description

                                            2021 Runner's Classic - Postponed    
 
Due to health guidelines by the CDC placed upon us, the Runner's Classic has been canceled for 2021 due to the implementation of updated restrictions.

We are extremely disappointed about enforcing the cancellation as we know many have anxiously waited to participate in the Classic as have we. However, the 'safety' of our participants is our top priority along with the enjoyment of the running community. Now is the time for all of us to focus on the health of our families and one another with abundant caution.

The Classic is diligently doing everything possible to ensure the event will take place when it is safe to do so and is in process of scheduling a new event date for November, 2022 as we've been told things are expected to return to normal at that time. Please note 'entries' for everyone who has registered for the Runner's Classic will definitely be honored for the 2022 event.

We appreciate your patience and thank you for your understanding. This is not an easy call and one which is out of our control, however, our goal is to fulfill and effectively provide a program which is recognized by all as being a 'quality' event and most importantly, a 'safe' event.
