Greetings SUP & RUN 5K Supporters and Athletes,
After thoughtful discussions with SANCA/Nathan Benderson Park and consultation with county officials, race organizers have voted unanimously to reschedule the SUP & RUN 5K 2020 . Similar to all running events, the SUP & RUN 5K requires a significant amount of advanced planning, including the issuance of permits by Sarasota County.
WHY CANCEL YOU ASK?
The health of our athletes, volunteers, vendors, and spectators is vital to race organizers. Each year SUP & RUN 5K attracts 1,000+ runners, SUP’ers, hand cyclists and differently abled athletes from more than a dozen states. With local COVID-19 cases on the rise and no relief in sight, organizers have no confidence the county will feel comfortable issuing a large-event permit in the near future.
What now you ask? There is good news!
NEW DATE, REGISTRATION AND TRANSFERS
The race has been rescheduled for May 1, 2021. For those of you going to the Kenny Chesney concert that same night in Tampa, rest Friday – Saturday is going to be a long, but FUN day.
All race registrations have been transferred to the new date and if you are currently part of the First 100 Club, your spot is reserved there too.
There are no refunds, however you are free to gift your registration to anyone of your choosing, including a sibling or best friend you might want to see suffer through the 5K SUP and the 5K RUN! Keep in mind that we have veterans and their family members who would benefit from your donated registration. To transfer your registration, respond to this email and provide the following information for the new athlete participating or state you are donating to a veteran:
• Date of Birth
• Event choice (Run only, SUP & RUN, SUP only)
• Shirt Size (long-sleeve SPF technical shirt)
• Email address
We appreciate the support you have already shown and thank you for understanding this was a difficult decision to make. We have every intention of coming back better and stronger in 2021, delivering another unforgettable SUP & RUN 5K!
We hope this gives you something to look forward to after a long hiatus from our local race season and you will invite all of your friends and family members to SOCIALLY SMOTHER on May 1, 2021.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for continuing to support our veterans and for 6 years running, the mission of this race. 💛
Your SUP & RUN 5K committee,
Tom Bedford, John & Felicia Cox, Christine Davis, Chris & Christine DeLeonardo, Nancy Downs, John Kurz, Jane Molaro, Mary Nessel, Julie Petersen, Wendy Rose, Dug & Marti Stetter, Scott Ventura and Paul Wilson
