The impact of COVID-19 has changed the shape of how we've conducted our lives and businesses over the past few months. As a small non-profit, we understand that this is a time of uncertainty for many people. However, it's also an opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment and efforts to support healthy lifestyles and communities. We hope to embrace this opportunity (with your support) with action, compassion and hopefulness.
Here's our plan:
ALL EVENTS ARE STILL SCHEDULED
While the situation is constantly evolving, our events are still scheduled as follows:
EARLY BIRD EXTENDED
We have extended our early bird registration deadline for this year’s Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon to May 31 to ease some of the pressure of making immediate registration decisions. All other rate increases will remain as scheduled.
KEEPING US ALL ON OUR FEET
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on our small non-profit and the people we serve, just as it has with so many organizations and communities. At this time, we're asking for your help as we meet the challenge of supporting you, the running community.
We're launching the Moving Forward Challenge to provide a way to earn your support while encouraging your health and training goals by providing incentives and resources for independent running under social distancing guidelines.
As an organization, we are proud to have been with this community through 50 years of running. We are familiar with the ups and downs of hilly terrain and course changes. We are grateful for your support over the years and look forward to seeing what we all can accomplish when we unite our efforts (even if that means keeping our distance for the time being).
