Due to the current situation surrounding Covid-19, we have decided to move this year’s Yankee Homecoming Road Race to a virtual race. We will not be hosting our regular live event on July 28th as originally planned.

The virtual run is now a 2 week-long event allowing us to remain safe while still enjoying the opportunity to participate in this traditional race in 2020. Choose your registration level and then participate from the comfort of your home, neighborhood or favorite route between Tuesday, July 14th and Tuesday, July 28th for a unique experience!

  • Run or walk your own course! It can be on a treadmill, on a trail, laps around your home, or in a stairwell.
  • Use your favorite GPS tracking device or app to log your distance and time.
  • Submit your time manually upon completion of your run into the online virtual result
  • Use the RaceJoy app to track your run on the dedicated official course(s) or use the "Anywhere" feature to complete your run anywhere, anytime.
  • Your time will be automatically uploaded via the RaceJoy app  into the virtual results after you've completed your run.

You will not be able to enter results data until 7/14/2020. If you are having any trouble, please contact: bsrstiming@gmail.com

Your support now through registrations and donations is more important than ever. On behalf of Eye Research and the Newburyport Lions Club, we look forward to running with you virtually, and in-person again next year!
