Like so much else right now, we are unsure of what this race will bring. We will say that in spite of COVID, we still had this event fully approved last year and a storm was what made us have to cancel. Happily Running has put on a few successful events in 2020 and have a lot of experience so far. We're certain we will find a way to make this event work. We will keep everyone updated often. Look forward to seeing you all out there
