Project 26.20

“Go the distance!”


PROJECT 26.20 In-Person Event Cancelled

Due to the sudden and unprecedented rise in COVID rates and the immediate changes in public health mandates at the state and local level, we were just notified by County Health officials that the in-person event scheduled for Sunday cannot take place this weekend.

We understand this is an eleventh hour decision that was made by our Sacramento County Public Health Department, and we know it causes inconvenience and disappointment for many people.

County Health feels good about our procedures and protocols for in-person racing and wants us to assure everyone that they want to help us bring back racing for our community soon. But given the current conditions, this weekend is not the time; so we will continue to work with them to bring back in-person running events in the near future.

We know all of you have worked so hard to persist to still get 26.2 (or 13.1) out of 2020, and are raring to go this weekend.  The Project 26.20 virtual event is still available and you are already registered for it as part of your in-person event registration.  The virtual event is open until Dec. 13th.  We will mail out all finisher items after the virtual event wraps up.  More info about the virtual event is given below.

We regret that we cannot celebrate your achievement with you in-person this weekend.  We will provide more info about a potential event rescheduling, refunds, and the mailing of finisher items in a few days.

Anyone that was signed up for the in-person event has two options at this point:

Option 1 – request a refund for the in-person component of Project 26.20.  You will remain registered for the virtual Project 26.20 event and your finisher items will be mailed to you at the completion of the event on Dec 13.

Option 2 – request an full entry credit into any upcoming  2021 SRA event (until Aug 31), including the “rerun” of this event that we hope to host as soon as we get clearance again from the county.  This option helps to support SRA’s efforts to bring in-person racing back to the region. Please fill out this Google Form to indicate which option you are choosing. 

You have until December 31 to respond.
