ORS 8k/5k: CANCELED FOR 2020 - MOVED TO 2021

New Date: 10/23/2021

It is with great disappointment that we are announcing the cancelation of the ORS 8k/5k Race for 2020, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 24th. 

With the current health risks involved in group gatherings and as we head deeper into the fall and the potential for further risks, we have decided to simply make the decision now to cancel this year's race and look forward with hope and optimism for 2021.

If you have already registered and paid for this year's race, we will honor and pay forward all current registrations for 2021's race.
Next year's race has been scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd, 2021. 

We hope that you all stay safe, keep active, and if we can help you with any of your PT needs to get back to working, playing or simply living, please contact us at ORS at 877-202-2175. 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date, and look forward to having you join us.
Thanks for your understanding during these difficult and challenging times for public events!

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.

Please let us know if you cannot make the new date for the 2021 ORS 8k/5k and would simply like to donate your money to this year's race cause.
