CoopStrong 4-Miler-Cancelled for 2020

Wed March 18 - Sat March 21 Greenville, NC 27858 US Directions

PLEASE READ: Based on local and national health warnings, the CoopStrong Committee has decided to cancel the CoopStrong 4-Miler on March 21st, 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. While we are disappointed, we feel that this is the best decision to guarantee the safety and health of our participants, volunteers, and community. Without your registration fees and donations, CoopStrong could not support local families affected by ALS and the research to find a cure. We hope that you will consider your registration as a crucial part of the fight against ALS.

In lieu of an official CoopStrong 4-Miler, we encourage all participants to run, ruck, or walk 4 miles and to post their accomplishments on social media by tagging @CoopStrong and @FleetFeetGVL. All who post and tag us will receive a Fleet Feet Coupon. We will be hosting a t-shirt and ruck patch pick-up at Fleet Feet (709 Greenville Blvd.) for all participants who registered before February 25th.

Those who registered after February 25th are still encouraged to attend the pick-up event as extra t-shirts and ruck patches were ordered. Official 2020 CoopStrong 4-Miler pint glasses will also be available. Participants who live outside of Pitt County may request for their t-shirt or ruck patch to be mailed by contacting

While we hope you will participate virtually and choose to support CoopStrong's fight against ALS through your race registration, you can request a refund by emailing Please do not hesitate to contact us on our social media or by email if you have any questions or concerns. Press On, The CoopStrong Team

Here Are Your Options:

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. CoopStrong will use the registration fees and donations to support local families affected by ALS and the research to find a cure. We hope that you will consider your registration as a crucial part of the fight against ALS.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time. Please email to request a refund. THANKS!
