New Date: Sunday, 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:
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 email@example.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,
