RUN OF REMEMBRANCE – UPDATE
The Run Of Remembrance is special to us and thousands of others in the running community. We have pushed hard to have it this year and have held off on making a final decision.
American Fork City has also been hopeful that with the forthcoming updates in the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions it would be allowed. Unfortunately, the final decision was made yesterday that it is still too early in the economic reopening to have such a large gathering.
CONTINUING THE TRADITION – VIRTUAL OPTIONS
For those that would still like to run, we have come up with a best-case virtual option that we hope will allow you to enjoy running on Memorial Day weekend and continue the tradition! If you haven’t registered yet, you can go register here.
A couple important things to pay attention to with this change:
1. If you are registered for the Run Of Remembrance 10K/5K/Mile you have automatically been transferred to the virtual run.
2. You can look up online and print off your custom bib to wear during the virtual run here.
3. Run this event virtually on your own course, in your neighborhood, or on your favorite trail or route.
4. Run the official course unofficially on May 22, 2020 and after. The 10K/5K/Mile courses have already been marked with the Start, Finish, Mile Markers, and Directional Turns. As Americans, you are free to exercise your first amendment rights and experience the official course whenever you’d like. Please observe regular pedestrian laws.
We encourage you to be respectful, cautious, and follow current social distancing guidelines while participating virtually.
