Jump Start Your Heart POSTPONED

New Date: 06/05/2021

Following the directions of Big Bethel Baptist Church, the 2020 Jump Start Your Heart 5K has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. Our church held a joint board meeting on Saturday 12 Sep and the decision was made to keep the doors of our church closed throughout the remainder of 2020. Like most races, the impact of Covid on the local community is devastating. 

We are offering three options for this race: 
1) Do it virtually - you will not get a t-shirt, but you will get a medal, and you will be able to upload your results to the website;
2) Defer your current registration to next year's race, which will be held on June 5 2021; or 
3) We will gladly offer a refund. 

Please make your decision and let us know what you have decided. We thank you for considering our race and we pray you'll return for the 2021 event.

May God be with each of you during these things, thank you. 

McKenley Mason 
Race Director 



Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 race on June 5th. Thanks for your patience!

You can run/walk on your own, without the crowds!  Whenever you're ready you simply do the 5k 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. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you in 2021!

We understand. We hope you can join us in 2021.
