WHY ARE WE DOING A VIRTUAL RACE?
The Great River Road Run for 2020 is going to be a virtual race this year. Unfortunately, even if things get better, we believe that hosting the event just wouldn't be possible this year. So out of caution for the health of our volunteers and everyone who would come out to run or watch, we have decided to make the race this year a virtual race.
What your virtual race will help?
The Alton Road Runners Club is a non-profit organization. Our main source of fundraising for everything we do comes from the Great River Road Run. Unfortunately the race this year will just not be possible with the current world we are living in. That is why we are hosting a Virtual Great River Road Run this November.
We always have a great turn out for the race and it is what funds all of our other community races and events.This race helps fund our Summer Running Series in the summer, with the Alton Memorial Family Run, the Pee Wee Run, and the Dash-n-Glow. With each race providing a T-shirt, refreshments, or prizes. Another event this helps us do is the Track Series in June, helping us put on five days of racing around the track and EAWR HS. And the last event it helps us do is our wonderful Cross Country Runner of the Year Banquet. An event that brings together 15 high schools from around the area to honor their outstanding runners from the Cross Country Season.
Your race and all of our proceeds will go towards putting on all of these amazing events that help bring the community together and to promote running to the younger generation and help build and maintain the sport that we all love. If you have any questions about our events or the club you can find answers here.
The race is open to all who want to run. The dates for the virtual race will be November 1st through November 30th, 2020. We understand weather can be difficult depending on where you are, so that is why we want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to run on a fantastic fall day.
We appreciate all of those that will run the virtual race and helps our club put on all of our yearly events in the future.
