GORDONS POND; Rehoboth, DE
Sunday, March 15, 2020 - 9:00am
PRESS RELEASE...SEASHORE STRIDER EVENT PRODUCTION INC.
With the very recent State of Emergency issued by Governor Carney in Delaware, The City of Rehoboth Beach, has decided to cancel all events, both indoors and out until April 30, 2020. The Seashore Striders respect their decision in this difficult time and the Seashore Striders know it was made out of the concern for visitors and community. We have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Shamrock Shuffle 10 miler & 5k that was to be held this Sunday(3/15/20) in Gordon’s Pond; Rehoboth Beach. While cancelling or postponing any event is very tough decision, we believe it is the right one. Our top priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved in our events. We know many of you have travel arrangements that are now affected and we wanted to let you know as soon as possible.
The Seashore Striders are going to offer the registered runner three (3) choices…
1. Transfer your race registration to our 2019 event which tent.. would be held on 3/14/21.
2. Transfer your race registration to a future Seashore Strider event from now until Dec. 31, 2020 of equal value.
3. Virtual Run a 5k or a 10 miler between Friday (March 13th) until Sunday (March 15th @ midnight) and send Race Director Tim a photo of your time on your watch (bonus would be the distance as well…but I trust all will be honest) and a photo of yourself at the completion of the virtual run. Race Director Tim will then score the race based on your results and post the results on Monday by noon. Awards will be no issue to get to you as they have been finished for weeks. T-Shirts…I will do my best to get you a shirt of some type…It may not be the St Pats T as I have halted the printing tonight, but I will take care of all participants with some nice shirts.
a. For those runners participating in the Virtual Run this weekend…message me on FB or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your intentions.
b. For those runners moving to the 2021 event or another SS event in 2020, you will need to message me as well with your name & your wish.
c. For those runners wanting to jump in on the Virtual 10m & 5k and are not registered…registration is still open.
On behalf of the Seashore Striders, we thank you for your understanding & support…Stay healthy & safe…Tim Bamforth- Race Director Seashore Striders
