2020 Divas Running Series Announcement
As we have previously stated, it is our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, staff, and host communities. We have been monitoring the health and industry guidelines and following the USAT&F hosting event guidelines related to COVID-19 based on regular updates from CDC, WHO, the USOC and other professional sports leagues. This guidance sets as primary consideration the rules and regulations set forth by public health authorities as well as state and local governments. In either case, whichever regulations are more restrictive should be the minimum guidance that should be followed.
Based on the sheer nature of the sport, including mass starts, congested finish lines, water distribution at water stations, heavy breathing/sweating and lack of social distancing on the course itself from competitor to competitor, coupled with the uncomfortableness of performing an athletic endeavor with a face covering, it is impossible for us to provide a safe environment for our participants, volunteers, staff and support crew. Hence, we will be transitioning our 2020 Divas Half Marathon & 5K in Puerto Rico, North Myrtle Beach, and Galveston to virtual events. Please note, this is uncharted territory, but our focus remains everyone’s safety. All registrations for these events will be automatically transferred to the virtual race option. Race packets will include a finisher medal, a race bib, a pink boa, a drawstring bag, and a pink tutu. Packets will be shipped to the addresses included in your application. Please expect to receive your packet mid-July 2020.
Please note, due to the upfront nature of our events, we are unable to issue refunds for registration fees. If you would like more information on our refund policy, please visit our website.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to our athlete services team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We know there are many questions and we will do our best to answer all of them in a timely manner, but we do ask for your patience in advance.
