Leatherman's Loop

9:00AM EDT - 12:00PM EDT
2020 Leatherman's Loop Cancelled

The COVID-19 pandemic has the potential for catastrophic effects within our communities, our country and our world. All efforts at this time are needed to help ourselves and each other get through this crisis. The Leatherman’s Loop has always been a celebratory event — but this is not a time for celebration.

Obviously, there will not be a Loop this year. No postponement, no virtual race, no rolling registrations forward to next April. All of our focus and efforts at this time should be directed towards what we can do to help each other get through this.

For me, and for the first time ever the Loop seems small and insignificant in light of what may lie ahead for all of us. All of my efforts this year will be focused on what I can do and what the Loop can do to ease the hardships that will most certainly come up in the days and months to come.

Thirty-three years of allowing the spirit of the Leatherman’s Loop to unfold has led to this crossroads. That spirit has always been fueled by you the participants. You are the only “sponsors” that the event has ever had. And uncertainty now puts the future of the Loop in your hands. Your generosity is needed to keep the Leatherman’s Loop solvent — but more importantly to raise funds for charitable donations to local organizations that will be serving the needs of our communities during this crisis.

All registrants will be given the option (see below) to donate or have us refund entry fees and shirt purchases. Before you make your choice, why not go to leathermansloop.org and scroll down to view the selection of photos and videos from the race. I guarantee that your spirits will be lifted.

I had planned to offer these words from Rumi at the start this year:

“Between ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field – I will meet you there.”

God willing we will meet like that once again in the field next year. Please know that I see each of you as examples of the very best that humanity has to offer.


PS: Please make your choice either via this note -- or visit https://runsignup.com/loop and look up your entry via the email address you used to register. If you do not make a choice by April 4, 2020 we will assume you are choosing to donate your entry fee and we thank you. 

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs and help the Leatherman's Loop continue to donate to assist the communities hit hardest by this pandemic. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. 

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