As California starts the slow process of reopening the state, Governor Newsom’s plan to reopen has just recently entered stage 2 of the 4-stage plan. With the ban on large gatherings and events expected to remain in place until stage 4, we’ve been forced to reschedule the 2020 Santa Rosa Marathon, originally scheduled for August 29th & 30th, to November 21st & 22nd. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.
The entire country is still being impacted by this pandemic, but we want to provide the best experience we can under these difficult circumstances, so we’ve created these options for you:
- Remain registered for the November event. No action is required on your end if you choose this option; OR
- If the new date doesn’t fit your schedule, you can join the Santa Rosa Marathon Virtual Run! We’ll ship your goodie bag items – tech hoodie (half/full), tech tee (5K/10K), medal, and bib – direct to your door starting mid September to the address you provide in this form. Half/full marathon registrants will receive a voucher to pick up their bottle of wine at the 2021 event as well. If your package is returned back to our office because of an incorrect address, we won’t be able to reship it.
Once your swag size and shipping address are confirmed, simply pick the ideal day to complete the virtual run, then submit your time to receive an official finisher’s certificate! To do so, log in to your EnMotive account, find Santa Rosa Marathon on the “Upcoming Races” page, click Log Result, enter your time, and download your certificate. There’s no deadline to complete the run. You’ll receive your goodie bag regardless of if or when you submit your time.
If you don’t take any action at all by August 31st, you’ll be automatically moved to the November event.
We can’t refund or defer everyone to 2021 because we’ve already spent most of the money on everything we needed to produce this year’s event, from race swag to permits and planning. What little that remains is being used to keep the lights on for as long as we can during this difficult time.
For more information, visit our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed, but we’ll reply as soon as possible.
On behalf of the Santa Rosa Marathon team, we thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times. When things are back to normal next year, we’ll be sure to send you a personal discount for the 2021 event as thanks for supporting us.
