Description: We never thought this would happen! With the recent increase in Covid 19 cases, we are switching to an all virtual event with a twist. This decision breaks my heart because now, more than ever, we need to stay active and connected. To make this event safe we would need to strip out all the important features like: cheering on your favorite runner, giving high-fives, pacing each other, and celebrating achievements. This, frankly, would remove the heart and soul of our event. We are working on the details but here’s what we want people to do. If you have not done so already, please join a team. If you have questions or problems with this process please send me an email (Running2bWell@Gmail.com). We will be working with the team captains to set up unofficial 5K courses that are convenient for each team. This will allow teams to get together (in much smaller/safer numbers), have fun, hopefully in costume, and cheer each other on especially the first time 5K runners/walkers. You can still pick up your bib and shirt 7/31 (5p-7P) at Ritchies Sporting Goods 137 S Main Tallmadge OH or we'll mail to you after the event along with any awards. Note: we're hoping to get shirts to the team captains a day early This was a very difficult decision and we explored every contingency but the board and I agree that this is the best solution based on current conditions. #weadapt. Together we are helping those in our communities who struggle with mental health and addiction issues. Thank you for your support of our organization. Keith Johnston Executive Director, Running2bwell
