New Date: July 03, 2021

Updated 5/15/2020 - Please visit the "Store" portion of this site to donate.  Your $25 purchase (plus shipping) will get you our COLLECTORS ITEM Lake Burton Fun Run 0.0 mile COVID-19 SPECIAL EDITION t-shirt!  We will upload a proof of the shirt when it become available. These will ship out shortly after Labor Day.  For the few that have already donated on the donation page - please send your shirt size and info to lakeburtonfunrun@gmail.com (we apologize for the learning curve).  For those registered for the 2021 race, your registration fee will roll over!  If you would like your very own COLLECTORS ITEM Lake Burton Fun Run 0.0 mile COVID-19 SPECIAL EDITION t-shirt then please visit the "Store" portion of our website. In all seriousness it will probably be a light gray t-shirt with our logo on the chest and our wonderful sponsors on the back. 

Initial Statement made 5/7/2020: We would like to Thank You for your continued support!  After consulting among the Board, our First Responders, the Road Runners Club of America, and taking CDC Guidelines into account, we have decided to postpone the race until July 3rd 2021.  Last year we had over 1250 participants that started at Moccasin Creek State Park, and close to another 1000 spectators at the finish line.  We do not feel that that this environment is safe for participants and spectators at this time.

We will close registration for the time being, and will open registration up on April 1st 2021.  We have, however, decided to keep the RunSignup page open for donations ONLY.  As always, we will be transparent with our funds and donations.  With these changing times, we will allocate donations where they are needed most based on recommendations from the local community, this could be our normal entities: Persimmon VFD, Lakes VFD, Wildcat VFD, Rabun County Search and Rescue, and the Rabun Sheriff’s K-9 Corps, or we may reach outside of those entities to others who may be in need (i.e. Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, Community Pantry, Inc., etc.)

We would like to carry-on our t-shirt tradition, so for a $25 donation, we will mail a 2020 Supporter T-shirt with the LBFR Logo.  This will be available through our RunSignup Donation portal.  We hope that you and your family are healthy and well, and we Thank You once again for your support.  We look forward to seeing you on the course in 2021!

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thank You for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
