Description

The People’s Bank Midnight Flight is one of the southeast’s premier races – and this year we are going VIRTUAL ! Due to the rapidly developing conditions, and uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have made the decision to go virtual to protect the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, staff, and the Anderson community.

While we know things are changing, we want one thing to be constant – our commitment to family wellness for all! Run, skip, row, swim, elliptical… exercise however you can to complete our various race distances. We offer a 1 mile, 5k (3.1 mile) and 10k (6.2 mile) option, or if you are feeling brave, try for all three!

The races will open on August 21st, and can be completed any time through August 31st. Registration and issuing of bibs will be completed through runsignup.com. Once you have completed your distance, you can also upload your results using runsignup.com, either through a web browser or text message, and they will be updated in real time. We will also be posting the race routes for each distance, so if you are local you can run the official route!

Included in registration will be the usual packet and t-shirt, with a commemorative design to mark the occasion! Packet pick-up for those local to the Anderson community will be held on Friday, August 21st and Monday, August 24th, from 12pm-7pm. This will be in a drive-thru format, so no need to even get out of your car. To receive your shirt on packet pick-up day, register by August 6th. If you register after August 6th, don’t worry! We will place a second order on August 31st with a pick-up date to be determined when they arrive.

Register by August 6th to be entered into a drawing for a $100 Visa gift card!

So, strap on those racing shoes, and get going…here’s your next steps!

  1. Register for the Midnight Flight (by August 7th if you want a t-shirt to race in!)
  2. Print out your bib, and attach it to you if possible (swimmers, you can write your number on your arm!)
  3. Get up, get out, and getting moving. Shake those quarantine blues and get your family out for a little friendly competition!
  4. Cross your finish line, and celebrate!
