PREMIUM:  You may order a long-sleeve commemorative shirt as a menu item. Registrations received before December 18, 2020 will be guaranteed the shirt at a drive-thru packet pickup on Tuesday, December 29th at the Erie Runners Club’s storage facility across from the Elks Lodge #67 at 2409 Peninsula Drive in Erie between 12 noon and 5 p.m.

If you are unable to get to the packet pickup, we will make other arrangements for pickup on an individual basis.

Any shirt orders received after the cutoff date will be filled but delivery MAY be delayed, due to increased uncertainty regarding shipping from vendors with the combined difficulties of the holiday season and the Covid-19 pandemic.


YOU ARE URGED TO REGISTER as early as possible!! 


AWARDS: There will be no awards this year, for obvious reasons. You may run or walk on a course of your choosing, even on an indoor track or a treadmill. You are urged to run or walk your 5-mile distance between Saturday, December 26th, and Saturday, January 2nd. You will then be able to submit your time and the race will be scored as any race would be. E-mail your results to Dan Albaugh at

Since the New Year’s Day run has always been THE way to start off a new year, everyone is encouraged to sign up with friends and family in the spirit of the NEW YEAR!!
