Race Update


Fellow runners and PTC Members, your PTC Board of Directors met “virtually” last night on “Google Hangouts.”

Most of our discussions were about the impacts of COVID-19 on PTC races, meetings, activities… and our own lives. We learned that the City of Hampton will not meet to consider any June events, so our previously scheduled Trailzilla Fast 5K (10 June) and Trailzilla Feel Good 4-Miler (23 June) will not be held. We’ve also learned that the Riverwatch on the Piankatank 5K (20 June) has been canceled.

Here is the most current status of races:

4/18: (CRR) Run the D.O.G. St. 5K – Postponed (9/5)
4/25: Virginia 24-Hour Run for Cancer – Postponed (11/7)
5/2: Tabb May Day 5K – Canceled
5/9: Langley Race Around the Base 10-Miler – Canceled
5/16: Fox Hill Community 5K – Canceled
5/23: Elizabeth River Run 10K – Postponed (9/19-tentative)
5/25: Yorktown Freedom Run Memorial Day 8K – Canceled
5/30: Run for the Stage 5K – Virtual
6/10: Trailzilla Fast 5K – Canceled
6/23: Trailzilla Feel Good 4-Miler – Canceled
6/20: Riverwatch on the Piankatank 5K – Canceled

At this time we are certainly hoping to hold the Joe-Zilla 5-Miler and PTC Picnic on 11 July.

We’ll also let you know as soon as possible on dates for the PTC Pub Run and our next Litter-Getter.

Additional information on these and other races and club activities will be posted on our website and Facebook. Our latest “On Your Mark” newsletter can be found at the “Newsletter” link at the top-right of the page.

Stay active, healthy, home, and “socially distanced.”
