New Date: August 2021 - Date TBD
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a saddened heart that we have had to cancel our 2020 Belvidere Tornados 5K Fundraiser. It was not an easy decision to make and we waited as long as we could to hopefully be able to work it out to be able to hold it. For the safety of all of our participants and our volunteers, we have to do what we feel is best. We hope you can all understand this tough decision and we hope that you all will join us again next year.
All current registrants will have the option to defer their race registration to next year or donate their paid 2020 race fees to the Belvidere Tornados Youth Cross Country Team (which the fundraiser benefits).
