Mother's Day 5K

Sun May 10 - Sun June 21 Directions
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) F.A.Q

The 2020 Mother's Day 5K is officially RESCHEDULED for Father's Day, June 21, 2020.  Like the rest of the world, the running community is reacting to this coronavirus pandemic and we receive updates and changes daily.  We are doing everything we can to not have to cancel the event so postponing/rescheduling is currently our best option.  We appreciate everyones patience and understanding.

We've been hearing from so many of you that you do this race every year as a tradition. We want to keep that tradition going for you no matter what, so we’ve been working diligently to provide contingency plans.

*Since both races start, finish, and run the exact same course, this will be a true "Battle of the Sexes" as we combine both the Mother's Day 5K and the Father's Day 5K.  Those registered for both races will get double the swag!  Both medals will join together again.

* If we can not run on Father's Day, everyone will run the race/s Virtually.  You will still get to keep your tradition alive and receive all of your well deserved swag (bib, shirt, medal, etc.).  We will keep you posted on packet pick up dates.  

We have not changed our policy that we do not offer refunds or deferrals. 

For those of you who are already registered, you do not have to do anything.  You will automatically be moved to the postponement date or virtual depending on if we are forced to take those options.  In addition, since you paid more than the current Virtual Race fee, upon conclusion of the event, we will be sending you a $5-$10 discount code for next years 2021 Mother's Day 5K.  YAHOO!  

Thank you all for your understanding and patience as we work through this together.  The Mother's Day 5K is important to us as it is to you.  We want you to stay healthy, stay active, keep training, and keep smiling. 

Let's celebrate all Moms and Moms to be the same as we always have...#MOMSRUNCLT

Can I get a refund?

We have not changed our policy that we do not offer refunds.  This policy is consistent with most races across the country and we encourage you to respect the refund policy and know that this situation is completely out of our control. The race incurred costs for staff, marketing, medals, t-shirts, custom bibs, food, etc. based on registered runners.

Is there a risk to my health?

When you registered you signed the electronic waiver, you understand that there is always risk to participate in an event like this.  We will take extra precaution noting COVID-19.  We encourage people with compromised immune systems, current illness, parents with infants/toddlers, and the very elderly with health issues to consider staying home if they registered for an event, as those are the populations that appear to be susceptible to the dangers of the virus.  If you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms, please do not show up.

You can help prevent the spread of infectious illness
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases including:

1.  Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

2.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

3.  Stay home when you are sick.

4.  Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

5.  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

6.  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

We all want to enjoy in the race we love so much.   Per the race policy, there will be no refunds.
