Out of an abundance of caution, we are going to proactively modify the River City Half Marathon, 5k & 10k – Leon Creek and turn it into a Virtual Race.
As you know, many events around the country have been canceled. With yesterday’s announcement from the Mayor, precautionary measures have hit San Antonio as well. This is new territory for events and large gatherings, and the overwhelming consensus is to err on the side of safety and caution.
If we were forced to change or cancel the race at the last second, we believe it would cause much more disruption. By proactively making this decision now, we are hoping to give everyone enough time to update your plans for Sunday, April 5th. Thank you for understanding.
All registrations into the River City Half Marathon, 5k & 10k – Leon Creek will be changed to the Virtual Race category ($35) and the difference that you paid will be refunded. We are working with our race platform Active to process refunds in a timely manner. We greatly appreciate your patience while we issue refunds.
HOW TO COMPLETE THE VIRTUAL RACE
Simply run your distance on YOUR time and at YOUR location. Once you have completed your run, send us an email. That is it! The Virtual Race window opens on Saturday, March 28th and closes on Sunday, April 12th. That is TWO WEEKS to complete your run. Please email us with your results during that time to qualify for your race bib, shirt and medal.
By running in the Virtual Race, you will still be qualified to complete the River City Challenge. Our next race is scheduled for Sunday, September 6th, 2020. The River City Half Marathon, 5k & 10k – Salado Creek. Complete BOTH events to receive an additional River City Challenge finisher medal. Two races = Three medals!
If you haven’t registered yet, we are still taking registrations into the Virtual Race. We can still run together, just only in spirit. The Virtual Race option is a great way to put your hard work and training to the test and still get your miles in. You can register by clicking the link below.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will follow the City of San Antonio’s guidelines for public gatherings. If possible, we’d like to provide a Packet Pickup location for runners to get their race swag. If that is not possible, or if you are out of town, we will mail out your race bib, shirt and medal. Stay tuned for more information while this situation evolves.
Thank you SO MUCH for your support and trust in Inspired Race Events. As a small husband and wife team, we greatly appreciate all of our runners and aren’t making this decision lightly. Thank you!
