The 2020 Crystal City 5K Fridays series has been CANCELLED

After the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to postpone the Crystal City 5K Fridays Race Series, we are once again faced with a difficult decision. While we love racing with you, your safety has and always will be our top priority. Instead of postponing for later in the year amidst an already busy, and still somewhat uncertain fall season, the 2020 Crystal City 5K Fridays have been cancelled.

While we hope this series will return in 2021, with so many races being cancelled, we want you to be able to turn your entry fee into something NOW as opposed to waiting another year. As such, instead of deferrals into 2021, we are extending the following options to all registered participants:

  1. Transfer your entry into another 2020 Pacers Event (see the full Pacers schedule for event info - including NEW virtual events, with more to come!)
  2. Trade your registration fee for Pacers retail store credit for our online or retail shops (credits sent via email within 2 weeks of selection)

Please choose an option below, click on "Continue" and you will be asked to sign into RunSignup to verify your selection. NOTE: if you choose to transfer, you must decide which event you want to transfer into and then email in order to receive the coupon code to register for the new event. 

The deadline to make your decision is August 31st. All registrants who do not make a decision by the deadline will automatically receive Pacers retail credits.

We cannot express enough our gratitude to the thousands of runners who choose Pacers Running every year. We hope you stay healthy and well, and are finding ways to get out there and keep running.

In this together,
Pacers Running


Here Are Your Options:

IMPORTANT! Selecting this option does NOT automatically transfer your registration. Please see below:

Please Note: Your Crystal City 5K Fridays entry fee will be used as a credit towards the amount of the transferred race entry fee. No additional fees will be assessed; however, if the entry fee for the new race is more than the entry fee paid for your Crystal City 5K Fridays entry fee, you will be required to pay the difference. If it is less you will NOT receive a refund for the difference. See the full Pacers event schedule with event information and then once you have decided which event you would like to participate in, please email We will reply with a coupon code for the event you select.

We will email you once your entry fees have been transferred over to store credit, which will be 1-2 weeks after submission.
