Race participants - The BWL Hometown Power 5K committee has met, and given all the restrictions placed on large events at this time, we’ve decided to cancel the 2020 event. We held out on making this decision as long as possible, but given what we currently know and understand about COVID-19 and the public health emergency, we felt in the interest of safety, it’s best to cancel and encourage everyone to run in their own setting. We plan to return stronger next year with the same great t-shirts, finisher’s medals, etc. and the wonderful race environment all of our participants help to create. In the meantime, we’ll miss seeing you all on race morning, and we hope you continue to stay safe during these uncertain and trying times.
