Due to the continuing public health threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Annapolis Striders has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Annapolis 10 Mile Run. Although we have not opened registration for the 2020 event, there are some runners that deferred from 2019 to 2020 and we will provide registration details for those deferred runners later.
We have made the decision to cancel after careful deliberation, knowing that our foremost responsibility is to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, our volunteers, our broader running community, and society at large. The current situation in the United States and throughout the world is one of disruption and uncertainty. We feel that moving forward with plans for a 4,000 person race is not aligned with what our government, medical experts, and society is asking us to do. While painful to do knowing the legacy that surrounds this event, we feel it is the responsible action to take in light of what is going on in the world around us.
We thank you for your patience and kindness during this difficult period. We hope you all remain safe and healthy and we look forward to gathering with you in Annapolis in August 2021.
