2020 ARTS RUN POSTPONED TO 2021
Hello Arts Run Participants, Volunteers, Artists, Sponsors, and Friends,
This is the announcement we were hoping that would never have to publish. Yet here we are going through a global COVID-19 pandemic together, like a bad dream that doesn't stop, this is unknown territory that is playing with our health and the health of our loved ones.
In light of the global pandemic situation, and the mandates from Governor Newsom, the CDC, and the City of Santa Clarita to stop all public events through April or later and for everyone to stay home, and after careful review and consideration with the Arts For Santa Clarita board, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Arts Run and roll it over to 2021 with the new date planned for April 10, 2021.
This was not an easy decision to make as we have been working hard to bring together the 2020 race. Yet, we can't be foolish or stubborn when it comes to people's lives, with hundreds of people that are a part of our events, the welfare of participants including runners, volunteers, artists, sponsors, vendors, family, city officials, and crew is always a priority at our events.
What happens to registered participants? Everyone's entry will be rolled into the new race date in 2021. If you are not able to make the new date, you do have the option to change your entry to a virtual runner and earn the Arts Run medal and swag. To request a change or for questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This pandemic situation is incredibly challenging for us as this is our livelihood and how we take care of our family, we work tirelessly to bring the community the best race events we can. Additionally, the Arts Run directly impacts the Arts For Santa Clarita organization, staff, and community. These events would not be possible without you and everyone involved, we want everyone to be smart in this global health crisis, let's do our part to stop this virus in its tracks, then we can all get back together and enjoy awesome running experiences.
New Global Adventures would not have made it over the last 5-years without the tremendous amount of people in the community that has been supporting us and our events by being a participant or volunteering year after year. Your success at our races has been our success and we cannot overstate our appreciation for all the love and understanding we have received. We love our races as much as you love to be a part of them, we are in this for the long haul and plan to create awesome race experiences in the community for many years to come. We hope that everyone will follow the recommended safety guidelines, stay safe, stay home, and be healthy so you can come run with us soon.
Thank you for your support and understanding,
Terry, Jenny, Ryan and the New Global Adventures and Arts For Santa Clarita Teams.
