We are currently planning for the 2021 races to be normal. We are also planning for the season to be COVID-affected. We don’t know what will be going on with state requirements/guidelines, permits, capacities, and the pandemic next year. It is our hope and goal to put on all of our usual races.
The 2021 races could look different. Post-race food and hanging out may be gone, fields might be smaller, some events may span multiple days, crew and/or spectators may or may not be allowed, fewer aid station and/or more drop bags… we just don’t know yet and won’t until next year gets closer. But, we’re doing the work now so that if we are able and it is safe to do so, we can race in 2021! Things may change often and quickly as we work toward next year. Each race’s webpage will always have the most current information.
Here is what we are planning for 2021 race dates. Don’t rush out to buy airline tickets or book lodging just yet though, but you definitely should put the ones on your calendar that you want to run. Some registrations may open with as waitlist so you don’t actually pay, until we are sure of the race happening. You can bet though, that when we put on a race in 2021, it is going to be awesome.

We received so much positive feedback about and requests to do the Favorite Place Race and the RUN the PCT virtual races again, so we just might. We’ll see what happens with in-real-life races but are certainly considering offering those and maybe other new virtual races again next year. A runner’s gotta run so if we can give you some motivation, we will.
Until we know more, we are holding off on scheduling the other events we put on each year; Season Kick-Off Party, Volunteer Party, Various Trail Work Parties, Sherpa Showdown, and Course Preview Weekends.
