New Race Date

New Date: August 1, 2020

As you are aware the current situation with Covid-19 is making it difficult to adequately plan for a successful event this spring.  For this reason we are postponing this event to Saturday August 1, 2020.  

All event particulars will remain the same, start times, venue etc will not change.  All currently registered participants have until April 30 to make a decision. If you choose to receive a refund, we'll begin processing them on May 1.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date of Saturday August 1.

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and enjoy receiving your shirt and medal for your accomplishment.


  • You will need to pickup your race packets (include your shirt, bib number and medal) at the pre-race packet pickup.  We will not be mailing packets.


  • Virtual participants will not be eligible for overall or age group awards as we cannot know whether the distance ran was the same as the participants on race day. 

On your behalf, we will donate the net proceeds of your entry fee to the Dragonfly Foundation.

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