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.
