Abram Sorek Memorial Race

Sat April 11 - Tue May 26 Erie, PA 16505 US Directions
Abe's race was changed to a virtual race.

**Running is Not Canceled**

Play Like A Champion

Don't Forget to Smile 

As many of you have heard the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has cancelled all events at Presque Isle State Park. This includes the Abram Sorek Memorial Race on April 11th. Our primary concern is always for the safety of our runners, volunteers, and team members.

We asked you, our family, friends and supporters what you would like to do. You all tossed around many good options. Unfortunately, there is still so much uncertainty we feel it is best to transition to a virtual race.

Please join the virtual run and feel the accomplishment of running the distance with Abe in your heart, at a location of your choice. As virtual runners, you will still get your 2020 Abe’s Race Shirt and Bib. Pick-up will be scheduled for a later date. To continue to keep Abe’s memory alive with this very special race read below to see how it works…

1) Sign up for the virtual run and choose which distance (10K, 5K, or 1 Mile) you would like to complete or switch to the virtual race and distance.    
2) Receive your event shirt and bib at a later pick-up date with a paid registration. If you donate a minimum of $3.95, it will be shipped to the address you sign up with.
3) Choose your own route in your neighborhood, favorite park, treadmill or whatever safe location you choose and run/walk/jog the distance to complete the virtual run!
4) Submit your result if you'd like to be added to the online results.

Event times, dates, location and all other details are subject to change prior to the event. All official information is on the event's website, www.abramsrace.com

We thank you all for being a part of this wonderful group by sharing in Abe's memory.

May you all remain safe.

     ~With Love

Abram Sorek Race Committee



Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

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.
