We have been in contact with the City of Punta Gorda. No event permits will be issued until May 15. It is too soon to cancel, and we are hopeful to be able to safely have the Memorial Day Race on May 25th for the community and for our Veterans. Your health and wellbeing matter to us, and we continue to monitor the situation as the date approaches. If the officials and data appear to make it impossible to have the race, then we will put everyone already signed up into the virtual race.
Our mission is to help Veterans in need, and their needs are huge. If you have the ability to sign up for the race, please do. If we have to move to a virtual race, we will mail your finisher’s medal and shirt (if signed up by April 19th), and the 5-year commemorative gift (to those who qualified by registering for all 5 years of the race series), or your finisher’s medal if you sign up after April 19.
We will keep you posted with updates as we get closer to May. Please be safe and stay healthy.
The Race Committee
