UPDATE: Goodnight-Loving Run going VIRTUAL

Welcome to the Goodnight-Loving VIRTUAL Run!! 

Swag and Packets: You get everything you would receive in a physical run. You get the t-shirt, coffee mug, finishers medal (depending on race distance), awards, all of it. Packet pickup will just be delayed until we have the all-clear, and we'll be shipping outside of Young County. When that happens, we'll let you know, and you will be able to come pick up your complete packet.

- The Run: You still run. Yes, you still run! Since the recommendations are that you keep 6 feet from another person, you might choose to run by yourself. Or you might run a comfortable distance from your favorite running partner. That's up to you. We'll have a window of days for you to do your run, then you record your time. If you use a running application with GPS, record it! You can run the course that we've already laid out on FM 61 South from Fort Belknap, or run your favorite route. You can even do your run on a treadmill if you like. Your course just needs to be a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon distance. If you're worried about the course being exact, don't worry about it. Remember, you can start and stop your tracking app when you are ready-to-go and stop it when you've reached the distance you've registered for, even if you decide to run longer.

- The Race: Your times will still be officially recorded! Our timing company will setup a website for you to easily enter your run time. There will be a DOB verification process to make sure you are you. Once all times have been entered, the timing company will score the race just as they normally do and the results will appear the same as if all of us had run together.

- The Awards: For the top 3 Male and Female of each race, we have a pair of ZULU Audio Alpha Speakers! They have magnets that allow you to wear on your shirt as you run/walk/bike.

In order to best serve and do right by those who have registered, we are offering three options:

  • Full Refund
  • Deferred registration to next year's race
  • Virtual Race to include race swag (we will deliver in Young and surrounding counties)

Again, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds and still receive the swag! 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 and promote future tourism to Young County. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Description

Dear Runner,

The interest for our inaugural Goodnight-Loving Run is way beyond our expectations! We cannot thank you enough for your interest in our race, and hope that you'll participate.

Due to the recommendations provided by the authorities, we can't have a large gathering of people together in the same place. Given what we know about the situation, we completely agree. We want you to be safe, above all else. But that doesn't mean we can't still make this a great experience. So instead of having a physical run, we are going to have a virtual run!

Never heard of that? Let us explain how it works:

- Swag and Packets: You get everything you would receive in a physical run. You get the t-shirt, coffee mug, finishers medal (depending on race distance), awards, all of it. Packet pickup will just be delayed until we have the all-clear, and we'll be shipping outside of Young County.
