Registration will remain open for the 202 Virtual Half Marathon, Relay and 5K until Friday, Oct. 9.

Our 2020 in-person events have been cancelled for the safety of our community.  When we began our planning for this year’s race, we were confident we could offer a safe in-person experience for our participants, staff and volunteers. But as COVID-19 case numbers have continued to climb in our communities, we have reached the conclusion that no level of race-day precaution can give us the confidence we need to feel we are proceeding safely in person. We are deeply disappointed but confident we are making the right choice.

Here’s what you need to know about next steps:
Confirm your registration for the Virtual Bellin Women’s Half Marathon, Relay or 5K and see other options here. 

  • These options include:
    • Transfer to the virtual event, with a partial refund ($40 for Half Marathon, $50 for Relay and $10 for 5K), or
    • Deferral to the 2021 event
  • Those who choose to participate in the virtual event will receive their race swag either at a drive-thru pick up event (details TBD) or via mail before the virtual event begins on Oct. 10
  • Virtual swag includes custom race shirt, bib, buff, nylon bag and finisher medallion
  • Virtual participants will complete their distance on their chosen course anytime between Oct. 10 and Oct. 18.
  • Instructions on submission of race results will be sent via email.

Our theme for this event is and will remain hope — the hope that your training continues to bring you physical and mental health, the hope that we can gather together safely next year — and the hope that we as a community have the strength to pull together and do what needs doing to fight this pandemic.
