Dear Wilkes-Barre Half Marathon Race Registrants,
On behalf of the Wilkes-Barre Half Marathon planning committee, we are sorry to inform you that we unfortunately will have to cancel this year's race due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainties that lie ahead. We first, and foremost, send our thoughts to anyone that has been affected by this terrible virus.
We hope that you are all doing everything possible to take care of your families and stay healthy.
Our team is grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from the community in preparing to host our event. We monitored the situation as it unfolded and waited as long as we could before making this difficult decision. We love this community and were excited to bring this event to Wilkes-Barre so that we would showcase many of the great things this area has to offer.
Many of our favorite races near and far have been canceled or postponed, but that does not mean running is canceled! Please, keep running! Races will be able to safely start up soon and you will want to be ready and prepared to get out there and get after it! At this time, so as not to interfere with other races on the calendar here for the area, we are not able to reschedule for this year. We will be postponing the race to the Summer of 2021.
We thank you again for signing up for this year's event. The below link will allow you to alter your current 2020 registration. Please make your selection by May 31,2020. Failure to make a selection will automatically defer your registration to the Summer 2021 date when it has been approved.
Thank you again for your support and we look forward to seeing you next summer!
