The race committee of the River City Rat Race is currently evaluating the restrictions put in place due to the current pandemic. Health and safety are our top concerns and our committee will be reviewing governmental guidance on the viability of continuing forward with the 2020 race. We plan to have a formal announcement in July regarding the status of the event and any options available to pre-registered runners.
