ERR 2020 has been cancelled

Governor Northam's new 50-person event limit has required us to cancel the ERR 2020. We apologize and are offering those registered the option of deferring their registration to 2021, donating their registration fee to our youth program or requesting a refund of their net registration fee. There is no race swag as it had not been ordered when the new restrictions were announced.  Registered runners will be sent an email with a link to choose one of these options. Those not responding by race day will default to the donation option.  

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the ERR 2021 new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You want us to donate your registration fee to the Strider New Energy Youth Program. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
