The hours and hours our team has worked with local, regional, and state officials to obtain clarity on the Commonwealth’s Phase III guidelines as they relate to foot races, have finally reached the point where we can no longer move forward. The guidelines were written with the best intentions to keep us all safe, but do not factor in the many different scenarios and variables that make a foot race on a 40-foot wide road over the span of miles different from a football game or a tennis match. The unprecedented situation requiring fast turnaround of guidelines and stipulations surrounding the pandemic do not account for all the variables, and so we as runners and walkers find ourselves stuck in the middle. Ultimately, after multiple conversations and correspondence with the Governor’s office we are resigned that it is simply not feasible to hold this event under the limited attendee stipulations, regardless of duration of event and length of course and size of staging area.
We will continue to assist the Governor’s staff in Richmond in proposing a policy change that will rewrite the guidelines, but the harsh reality is this cannot be done, approved, and put in place before November 7th. While we work to ensure that the PNC Parkway Classic may go forward in-person next April under updated guidelines, we have been given no choice but to forego the in-person 2020 PNC Parkway Classic and transition all registrants into the Virtual Race.
All registrants will be able to pick up their race swag (shirt and medal) at Pacers Alexandria during the weekend of October 31 - November 1 and November 6 - 7 or choose to have them shipped. (See the Description section for full details.)
Hosting racing events is what we live for, and our hearts break every time we have to cancel a race. It is not our choice, and it severely impacts our business and it’s staff. This pandemic has taken something from all of us - physically, emotionally, and financially. But racing is at the heart of what we do, and we are all in this together. We hope that you will lace up those shoes, and run your race whenever and wherever you can. Share your experience on social, and by uploading your results. Someday we will look back at 2020 - maybe glare back - thankful that it is over, but we will remember everything we did to keep our lives going, no matter what got in our way, to do what we love.
In this together,
The 2020 PNC Parkway Classic is a fully virtual race. If you had previously registered for the in-person 10 Miler or 5K and did not make an alternate selection before the deadline, your registration has been automatically transferred to the appropriate virtual race distance. Participants may complete their race any time between November 1 and November 30th.
