      Dear Runners,

      As we learn how to adapt to the challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are all confronted with difficult decisions on a daily basis. In an effort to support the health and safety of our community, we have decided to shift the 2020 Platte River Half Marathon & Buckhorn Exchange Relay to a solely virtual race.

      As fellow runners, we empathize with your frustrations. It’s a difficult message to hear, but at this time it’s the best for our community. And the community is hugely important to the Platte River Half Marathon. We can still run – just not close to each other in large groups.

      We deeply regret not being able to have the 17th annual Platte River Half in person, but we’re here to offer creative, alternative options for each and every runner. Since the in-person event scheduled for April 5, 2020, has been canceled, each participant will be given four options including a virtual race, deferment, and more. We know there are many pressing issues right now and we want you to rest assured that we tried to have your best interest in mind.

      We’ve spent the last 11 months planning this race and did not make this decision lightly. After much thought, we think it is best to provide our runners with some alternative options and let them choose what is best for their personal situation.

      Please look for an email from Platte River Half Marathon on Tuesday, March 17th, outlining in detail those options. This information will also be posted on our website. Also, please make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

      Be safe, respectful, and take care of one another during this difficult time. We appreciate your understanding and patience regarding this difficult decision.

      Sincerely,

      Logan, Alex, and Paul
