PNC Parkway Classic

New Date: Sunday, November 8, 2020

The 2020 PNC Parkway Classic has been RESCHEDULED to November 8, 2020

We continue to work closely with our City of Alexandria partners to monitor conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we were hopeful the initial rescheduled date of August 16th would be attainable, restrictions on in-person events have been extended through September 1st. We are very grateful to have secured a new rescheduled date and time to hold the event: Sunday, November 8th at 8:00AM

We understand that this alternate date may not align with your calendar, and we have extended the following options to all registered participants:

  1. Defer to the 2021 PNC Parkway Classic to be held April 25, 2021 (no deferral fees)
  2. Defer to the 2022 PNC Parkway Classic to be held April 24, 2022 (no deferral fees)
  3. Transfer your entry into another 2020 Pacers Event (see the full Pacers schedule for event info - including NEW virtual events, with more to come!)
  4. Trade your registration fee for Pacers retail store credit for our online or retail shops (credits sent via email within 2 weeks of selection)

If you would like to participate on November 8, 2020 there is no action required. Your registration will remain active and we will keep you updated with any new information as it arises. In the event that the November 8th date will not be possible, all registrants will be notified no later than October 25th. At that time, registrants will be given the choice to participate in the Virtual PNC Parkway Classic (details to come in the near future), defer to either 2021 or 2022, or trade your entry fee for Pacers retail store credit.

If you do not wish to participate on November 8, 2020 please choose an alternate option below. Select your option, click on "Continue" and you will be asked to sign into RunSignup to verify your selection. NOTE: if you choose to defer or transfer, you must select your option FIRST in the online form and then complete the steps to process your transfer or deferral through your RunSignup profile (if you have any trouble, please email events@runpacers.com)

The deadline to make your decision is August 31st. All registrants who do not make a decision by the deadline will automatically stay as active registrants in the November event.

On behalf of the event and our charities who have received nearly $500,000 since the PNC Parkway Classic first started, thank you for your patience and continued trust. 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 defer you into the 2021 event. Select this option to continue and record your selection and THEN follow the instructions below to complete your deferral:

The Defer Registration option can be found by logging on to RunSignup, navigating to Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Defer Registration (located at the top of the page.) See this tutorial from RunSignup if you would like to see some very handy step-by-step directions with screenshots, or email events@runpacers.com for assistance. NO DEFERRAL FEES WILL BE ASSESSED.

NOTE: The way Runsignup handles deferrals is to keep your registration in the original event, and then we create a "reservation code" that is sent out to you after registration has opened which allows you to register for the 2021 event without paying the entry fee, once it opens (it's not an automatic deferral). Once you defer, you will no longer see the race in your profile AND your confirmation email will show the current year date, since that is the date of your original registration, but your status will show as deferred

IMPORTANT! Selecting this option does NOT automatically defer you into the 2022 event. Select this option to continue and record your selection and THEN follow the instructions below to complete your deferral:

Your Parkway Classic 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 Parkway Classic 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 follow the steps below to transfer your registration.

The Transfer Registration option can be found by logging on to RunSignup, navigating to Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Transfer Registration (located at the top of the page.) You must go through the registration process for the new event, and will see a button to start the process from this page. If you have any trouble, you can check out this handy step-by-step tutorial created by RunSignup or email us at events@runpacers.com with questions.

We will email you once your entry fees have been transferred over to store credit, which will be within 2 weeks of selection.
