Fighting Falcon Virtual Race

To slow the spread of and reduce the number of individuals infected with COVID-19 the CDC’s latest recommendation is to cancel or postpone events of 50 or more people.  As a result, the Fighting Falcon 5k will be canceled on Saturday, April 25 ,2020. Racers will have the option to participate in the virtual race, just donate their entry fee, or request a refund. We are choosing not to reschedule at this time as our student athletes are the volunteers that work the race. We also do not want to compete with any other local 5k's. We hope you can join us in 2021.

ALL participants that switch to the virtual race will receive a custom die cast medallion in the mail.

We apologize for the inconvenience, however the health and safety of our staff and community is our highest priority. We will be updating our social media and website as more information comes available.

Please email the race director with any questions.

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions. Each virtual race participant will received a custom die cast medallion on/around 4/25/2020.

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 at an event soon. All entry fees kept go directly to the Fairmont State University Cross Country Team.

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