Numerous road races throughout the world have been impacted by COVID-19. With confirmed localized cases of COVID-19, regional and local races have been no exception to cancelation. USATF Adirondack supports the decisions being made by race directors and government authorities. The health and safety of the community must be the first priority.
At this time, the Schenectady Firefighters Run for your Life 5K, scheduled for March 28th has been postponed. We are working with the race committee to keep the race in the Grand Prix and reschedule for a date that works within the framework of the other Grand Prix races. We anticipate, at a minimum, some of the other spring Grand Prix races will be impacted and have been in contact with both Delmar Dash and Bacon Hill 10k. Both races are actively monitoring the situation and will make necessary and appropriate decisions. At this point any race that cancels will be removed from the series. We will work with races that postpone to try to keep them in the series with a new date. We will continue to monitor the situation and will make adjustments to the team, individual and complete the series components as needed. We will continue to update you with information as the situation unfolds.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during these uncertain times.
