Nic's Race Postponed till September 27th

New Date: 09/27/2020

Hi Racers,

I'm so very sorry for the late email on Nic's Race. We have postponed the event until September 27th, 2020 with the goal of having the event physically happening. If we are unable to gather on September 27th, 2020, the race will become a virtual race at that point. We will continue the September 27th race with a 5k run, kids fun run and family social bike ride. All race registrations will be transferred to the September 27th race day. If for any reason, this date does not work for you, you can A: leave the registration fee as is, understanding that it is 100% going to the Nelson family or B: require a refund via email. Please know that this race will likely look a lot different then what we're used to for races now with the COVID-19 on everyones mind. We plan to have a time trial start so no one will ever be in a mass of people. We will require everyone to be self sufficient on the run course to eliminate the contact. We will also have to go food options at the finish line. More ideas come, but know that its on our radar to keep everyone safe. 

We apologize for the change in date though we feel a physical race is the best way for all of us to show our support to Nic.

Thank you for supporting Nic!

This is a fun, weekend outing for individuals & families. 

10am - 5k Timed & Untimed run - on the Ship Creek trail starting behind the Ulu Factory. Racers will need to stay to the right on the return to avoid oncoming runners. 

11am - Kids 2k Fun Run - on the Ship Creek trail starting behind the Ulu Factory. Racers will need to stay to the right on the return to avoid oncoming runners. 

11:30am - Family Social Bike Ride - This is a beautiful 4mile paved out & back bike ride for families to enjoy the trail along the Ship Creek. All rides will need to stay single file and will need to use good biking communications (calling out PASSING) only on straight aways when you can confirm its safe to pass and there is no oncoming bike traffic. Racers participating in both events are able to leave their bikes the gravel parking lot to the right of the Ulu Factory during the 5k/2k. There will be volunteers monitoring the bikes. 

All race proceeds will go to the Nelson family.
