As of 3/15/2020, the CDC has updated their guidance for COVID-19 with this statement, “Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. When feasible, organizers could modify events to be virtual.”
As a result, the 2020 Irving Marathon benefiting Baylor Scott & White Irving Foundation’s fight against childhood obesity has been cancelled!
In only a matter of weeks the world has changed. Safety measures are being put in place around the world to prevent a bigger crisis and help us get back to a normal life. There are a lot of concerns about the current state of our world but we must do our best to stay positive. Things will be back to normal soon and together we’ll come out stronger from this. Many of us were looking forward to the big day on March 28th. The challenges, sacrifices, and months of training you have put in have not been in vain. Many lessons have been learned and many obstacles have been overcome along the way. We thank you for joining the movement with the Irving Marathon. The Irving Marathon Running Series ensures Irving & Coppell ISD Elementary and Middle School students grow up with better wellness habits. We will continue our mission, as it is our belief that through small steps in lifestyle change, community involvement and healthy relationships, we can reverse the trend of 35% of Texas adults battling obesity.
Event medals and shirts arrive this week. We are currently planning a method to allow everyone to get their race gear with the new restrictions in place. As you can imagine, refunds will not be an option being this close to the event. We are working on finalizing the best way to get everyone their race day gear including: ViewSport sweat revealed shirts, Irving Marathon bag, event bib, and Finisher medal. You will then be able to run your own race virtually from anywhere! For those of you who live local, we will schedule a celebration run sometime in May or June at Toyota Music Factory and give you the best running event party we promised you once everything gets back to normal. In the meantime, keep your head ups and let's all do our part to stay safe and run virtual!
Deferment and transfers at no extra cost will be an option! Hang tight while we work out some more details.
The Irving St. Patrick's 5K/10K was cancelled this weekend as well. The process we used for participants to convert to a virtual run worked smoothly, but with regulations frequently changing, we need to confirm what we can and cannot do before making any final decisions. Please be patient as we work out some of the details to ensure a smooth process for everyone.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Lazaro J. Alvarez
