Rapid Rabbit Run Is now a Virtual Race
The Rapid Rabbit Run, scheduled for March 22, 2020, is canceled due to impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic and the potential of exposing people to the virus. Given the heightened concern of the impact of the coronavirus to our public health and safety, the restrictions placed on events greater than 50 person both state and local officials, and the recent shut down of the schools, the only decision at this time is to cancel the race. We apologize to our runners for any inconvenience this decision has created.
In place of Sunday’s event, we will host a virtual 3 & 5 mile race where currently registered racers can complete a 3 or 5 mile run of their own on Sunday and post their times to the timing company. You will also be available to win age group awards and complete the goal many of you had set out to achieve. This virtual race will take place on a course of your choice and you will report your time to Negative Split Timing by the end of the day on Sunday to compete. We understand that a virtual race is not the same as the community event that the Rapid Rabbit Run offers and cannot replicate the feeling of crossing the finish line in competition with many of your friends and family. However, we hope it is an opportunity to still get out on Sunday and enjoy our sport and our beautiful community.
Here are the directions for what to do to register for the virtual race: Go to www.nsplit.com.
Click on the red banner at the top of the page to access our virtual race center, and then select Rapid Rabbit Run. Follow the directions from there. Simple as that.
SAK is a non-profit focused on supporting the Seniors at East Valley High School. Your entry fees support the senior class all night party after graduation. Since the race has been canceled, you can take a charitable deduction in the amount of your entry fee. Due to the fact the cancelation is out of the control of the SAK or its partners, no refund will be made at this time.
If you ordered a t-shirt, we will be handing out at Harvest Food located on Trent road on Sunday March 22 from 9-11 am. If you cannot pick it up at this time, we will be holding on to them and figuring out another time in late May or June.
We thank you for your continued support and patronage of Rapid Rabbit Run and East Valley Seniors and look forward to next year’s Rapid Rabbit Run. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
SAK Board and Rhonda Allen, Race Director
