4oth Annual Doc Lopez Run for Health Cancelled – Event Goes Virtual

The safety of our runners, walkers and event volunteers is our top priority. While there are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our community, we have decided to cancel the 40th Annual Doc Lopez Run for Health as an in-person event and to instead host a virtual race. We made this decision out of an abundance of caution and in line with the recommendations of public health experts.

In challenging times like these, exercise can be a wonderful coping mechanism. With this in mind, we will offer a virtual race so that runners and walkers may participate individually or in small groups in their own community. We have switched all registered runners and walkers to virtual participants, and will mail each participant a finisher’s prize and race t-shirt (t-shirts for half marathon and 5k only). Runners can expect to receive these items soon. Online registration will remain open until midnight on Friday, March 20, 2020.

As a virtual participant, you can complete the race distance on the route, day, and time of your choosing. No official timing is necessary for virtual participants, but as you participate virtually over the coming days on your own or as a small run or walk group, please share photos and stories on social media tagging @ElizabethtownCommunityHospital and using the hashtag #DOCLOPEZRUNFORHEALTH.

All proceeds continue to benefit University of Vermont Health Network - Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary.

Thank you again for your support.
