Open letter to the running community
Below is a great article written by a dear friend and colleague Kirsten Fleming. As this pandemic rages on, we have all committed to buying from and supporting local businesses and restaurants. Supporting local races and events is important too. Most are small businesses or not-for-profits, many are also trying to keep full time staff employed. All give back to the community both in economic impact, supporting community wellness and supporting countless charities. Events as we know them will be the last of the impacted industries to return when this is normal and 65% may not survive 2021. If your favorite races are doing virtual events, please support them- so they will be there to support you when this is over!
