Good morning participant!

First of all we hope this email finds you and your loved ones healthy, happy & still running! As you know, the current state of all of our lives have been tossed upside down with the world pandemic we find ourselves in. As an event that attracts people from all over the country and so many from our great state and local community, we have been waiting to see if we might still be able to provide a safe event on May 9th 2020, just over a month’s time from now.

Our board of directors met last night, and decided that with the stay at home order being extended to the end of April, we do not feel that in good conscious we would want to bring hundreds of people together so soon after the order was lifted. Also, we have high standards as to the quality of the event that we provide and we don’t know if we could make it happen so quickly. That being said, with a heavy heart we are officially canceling the Carbon Valley Half Marathon for 2020.

All registrations will be automatically moved to our May 8th, 2021 event. There is nothing you need to do to make this happen. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your planned participation and we are committed to providing an outstanding memorable race for you next year.

If you are drawn to do so, we are still encouraging fundraising for Autism research through our Children’s Hospital Campaign so that we can still make a 2020 impact. you can make a donation or start your own fundraising campaign here: http://support.childrenscoloradofoundation.org/site/TR?fr_id=1701&pg=entry&fbclid=IwAR1E-eojxZoPLCmCAUZGYn0Lz9tB69egcpLRnK-grzuMKP9YqFi7VIyANw0

Thank you for your support,
Stay well, be happy, keep running!
