Race Postponed

New Date: November 14, 2020

After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Core Sound Run until November 14, 2020.  This is disappointing for me personally as I am not only the co-founder of the race, but also a runner myself.  As you all know, most events around the world have been canceled.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support of our race and of the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center. As a pre-registrant, here are your options:
