As many of you have heard, the Schweizer Fest event for 2020 will be different than in years past.  We all understand the importance of social distancing, but we also want to provide some sense of ‘true community’ if possible.

That’s why this year, our 43rd annual race is going to be held virtually.  Annually, we have over 700 runners with over 500 spectators (family/friends/volunteers) around City Hall on Schweizer Fest Saturday.  With so many people involved, we have been asked to come up with a different option.  This format allows social distancing to occur, gives our participants a chance to still complete the 2mi/6mi distances with the friends/family of their inner circle, and gives those who cannot travel to Tell City from far away the ability to still compete. 

Those wanting to participate in the Schweizer Fest Virtual Run will need to register online.  All participants will still receive their annual shirt when registering.  Runners and walkers will be able to complete their 2mi or 6mi route anytime between August 1st and August 8th.  We ask that participants submit their times via email (email address to be provided upon registration) anytime between those dates.  We will compile our results and place them online.  

We know this is a very simple version of our annual event.  There are no awards.  There are no prizes.  We are not even asking our sponsors for donations - they’ve been so great to us over the years, and this is a small way for us to again thank them for their support.  But we still want to offer everyone a chance to feel that same Schweizer Fest spirit that has been thriving for many years.  Here’s to a safe rest of your summer - and we hope to see your results in early August.
