The FLRC board and race directors regret to announce the cancellation of Fillmore 5K, Forest Frolic, Forge the Gorgeous, the August track meet, and the club’s annual picnic.
As with previous race cancellations, we made this decision to comply with New York State regulations and recommendations from state and local public health officials. Although New York State is starting to reopen and we hate canceling races, we felt that it would currently be irresponsible to encourage large gatherings of runners, some of whom might travel here from areas with higher infection rates. We must all do what we can to continue to control infections in our community.
We have refunded those who had already registered for these races.
The board and race directors will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and evaluate other upcoming club races at our monthly board meetings.
Although all FLRC group runs and workouts have also been canceled, we strongly encourage everyone to exercise regularly to keep your immune system strong. Whatever you decide, avoid groups and crowded areas when running, and please follow our COVID-19 recommendations.
Stay fit, stay healthy, and we look forward to being able to run together again!
