Great Balloon Chase 2020 is going Virtual!

It is with disappointment that we must defer this year in-person event until 2021.  The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on our running community. Our team and local officials were optimistic about this year's event. Unfortunately, the current level of restriction will not allow us to provide participants with the experience we expect safely. 

This is devastating news, but we are determined to make this a positive.  

The team is already beginning to take action to provide currently registered participants with options. 

2021 Deferment - you can defer your registration to the 2021 event, and we will send you're a Great Balloon Chase Training Crew Shirt
