Greetings SUP & RUN 5K Supporters and Athletes,

As you can imagine, COVID-19 has been a daily conversation for the SUP & RUN 5K committee members. We've watched this virus closely and taken in to consideration actions from other race directors, locally and across the nation. A number of things concern us about a May 30th date, none of which is more important than the health and safety of our veterans, athletes, vendors, volunteers and sponsors.

It is also time to finalize the orders for race shirts, First 100 Club SWAG and bibs and put a bow on the personal touches that make our boutique race so special. Time is not on our side. For these and countless other reasons, the most prudent measure for us is to err on the side of caution, and rather than be in the long list of area cancellations, we are simply postponing SUP & RUN 5K to Saturday, September 5th.

We hope this gives you something to look forward to after a long hiatus from our local race season and you will invite all of your friends and family members to SOCIALLY SMOTHER on September 12, 2020. We understand if this new date does not fit in to your schedule so we have two options for your registration fee. You can DONATE it to our veterans or request a refund (sorry, no deferrals), please e-mail: felicia358@gmail.com

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for continuing to support our veterans and for 6 years running, the mission of this race. 💛

Your SUP & RUN 5K committee,

Tom Bedford, John & Felicia Cox, Christine Davis, Chris & Christine DeLeonardo, Nancy Downs, John Kurz, Jane Molaro, Mary Nessel, Julie Petersen, Wendy Rose, Dug & Marti Stetter, Scott Ventura and Paul Wilson

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to September 12, 2020 and look forward to having you join us. 

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you next year!

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

Description

The 6th Annual SUP & RUN 5K event will be held at Nathan Benderson Park to benefit Operation Second Chance (OSC). Take a moment to learn more about OSC here: www.OperationSecondChance.org 

The SUP & RUN 5K gives athletes three great races in one to choose from

  • 5K RUN 
  • 5K Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) OR
  • 5K SUP & 5K RUN 
    (There will be a start line mat (chip) for the combination SUP & RUN this year!)
Athletes participating in the combination SUP & RUN will run the 5K first and then hop on their paddle board for a 5K paddle around Nathan Benderson Park.  The SUP & RUN 5K draws top runners and SUP'ers who compete for cash prizes but it's our not-so-serious athletes who have the most prominent place in the event. 
 
The SUP & RUN 5K is a family style event.
 
WALKERS ARE WELCOME and encouraged to attend.
 
Why choose the SUP & RUN 5K? 
  1. Every finisher receives a custom finisher medal.
  2. The race shirts are AMAZING!
  3. AWARDS GO 6 DEEP IN EACH 5 YEAR AGE GROUP!
  4. SWAG, to quote a participant, "this race SWAG is truly head and shoulders above most races"
  5. The food & post-race celebration party is FUN! FUN! 
  6. Whoa! There is a beer garden, a SIP & RUM station and AMAZING VENDORS where you can buy really cool stuff AND... 
  7. The Athletes, Vendors, Sponsors, and Spectators: ALL CELEBRATING OUR VETERANS!
