Due to the blizzard we are unable to run the Love the Run You’re With 5K this Sunday. However, through the enormous help of Arlington County, we are able to reschedule the race for Sunday, February 28, 2010 at 9:00am.
Following is information regarding the event:
Awesome! I can’t wait for the 28th. What do I need to do?Everyone who is registered for this weekend’s event will be registered for the race on the 28th. Individuals already registered do not have to do anything to re-register. We will still have a Valentine’s Day theme since love is 365 and 24/7! In addition, we will also have our amazing post-party at Champps.
Ugh. I can’t make the rescheduled date. What can I do to still participate?
If you are unable to participate on February 28, you may run virtually and log your miles and time on our website. You will be included in the results and receive your race materials. We encourage you to also post your pictures of your virtual run on our Facebook page (remember to tag “Pacers Running Stores”). Feel free to join our fun run groups and log your miles with them! Virtual logging of times/miles will be available starting this Saturday. You may run virtually, in person, or both! Runners participating virtually are not eligible for awards.
When can I pick up my stuff?
General packet pick up is now slated for Friday, February 26 from 4pm-9pm (Pacers Pentagon Row), Saturday, February 27 from 10am-6pm (Pacers Pentagon Row), and on race morning, February 28 at Champps from 7:30am-8:45am. We regret we will not have the materials available for pick up earlier than the start of packet pick up. However, we will hold a short, one evening packet pick up intended for our virtual runner friends NEXT Thursday, February 18 from 5pm-9pm at Pacers Pentagon Row. We want to give our virtual runners a chance to sport their bibs and shirts on their virtual runs. We think the pictures will be adorable! Even if you are not a virtual runner, you may pick up your packet at the special packet pick up but be sure to keep your timing chip and bib in a safe spot.
Anything else I need to know?
We hope that the two options for participating are conducive to your schedules. As you can imagine, we must adhere to our registration policies and are unable to refund registrations. We truly hope you can participate-either in person or virtually- and while we would prefer to run this weekend safety must be our number one consideration.
Wow. How were you able to reschedule in such a short period of time?
A huge thank you to Lt. Belanger and Captain Afzal of the Arlington County Police Department, Ted Williams of the Arlington County Traffic Division, Potomac Runners, and the gang at Champps for their flexibility and support. Rescheduling an event of this size is sometimes a daunting and impossible task, however, with their support we are able to bring this exciting event to the DC running community.
Thank you for your flexibility and stay warm and safe this weekend.
More to come...
