COVID-19 - Event Cancellation

New Date: DATE TBD

Following the rapid evolution of the COVID-19 situation, our team has made the decision to cancel the LEE Loves Local 5K for 2020. We have concluded that hosting this year’s event at this time poses an undeniable risk to the public and we’re not willing to take that risk. 

We appreciate the community’s patience during this time of a public health threat from COVID-19. 

At this time, the LEE Loves Local 5K will be cancelled for 2020. You may elect to request a refund, or transfer your registration to the 2021 event.

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. Thanks 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.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
