The year of 2020 was a year full of challenges and frustration for many runners, race directors, timers, sponsors, and the like. Our organization was no different; but from early on, we made a commitment to finding solutions rather than sitting in our sorrows. We wanted to be an organization that tried to find the positive and create opportunities for our great running community. Although, our events calendar looked different in 2020 than we expected, we were excited to be able to produce 5 live races and time 7 live races across 2 states. Our team of staff worked tirelessly to come up with safe racing strategies to bring real events back to our region. We are excited and optimistic for 2021. We know that races are unlikely to be filled with huge after parties and 10,000 person start lines in 2021, but we feel confident that small to mid-sized races will happen in 2021 as they did in 2020. Our commitment is to continue to innovate and keep runners, staff, and volunteers safe. We will persevere together and continue to support one another!
