Dear 2020 Event Entrant and Sponsor,

Over the past several weeks, we have been monitoring updates from county, state, federal, and international public safety and health agencies regarding the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With state and local efforts to control the virus expanding quickly, the Porterville Breakfast Rotary have decided to postpone the race until later this year in order to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, spectators, and residents.

We are currently coordinating with local agencies, partners, and other impacted entities to secure a reschedule date for the 2020 Run for Life 5K walk and run. We are hoping to reschedule for late summer or early fall and will update you as soon as a date is secured.

Like you, we are very disappointed to have to move the race to a later date, but we strongly feel it is the responsible thing to do. Details are still being finalized and will be communicated soon.

We appreciate your patience, understanding, and concern as we develop a path forward for a rescheduled race weekend. We will provide more details on our website as they become available.

Thank you for your support during this trying time. We look forward to hosting you for a safe and fun race this year.
