August Race Updates

As we continue to abide by our mission statement and with the health and safety of our community being of utmost priority, we regret to inform you that we, as a board, have made the decision to go virtual for this year’s upcoming races. While the current situation involving COVID-19 remains fluid, we cannot in good faith plan and host a large group gathering that may expose our community to this health risk. Please know the decision was not easy, but we plan to do the best with the situation handed to us.

What does this mean for you?
If you have already registered for our events (Triple Crown Challenge, Big Pete’s 8k, Cajun Cup 10k, Al Comeaux LA10) you will be automatically transferred to the virtual race.
Given these extenuating circumstances, we are allowing you the option to defer your registration to next year’s race OR receive a refund, if you wish.

How the race will work:
You will be allotted a four day window to run the race. Races will remain on the same weekend as previously scheduled. The ability to submit times will be available from Thursday – Sunday. We will be recognizing the top three male and female finishers with awards. With your registration you will receive great SWAG as usual! Further details on the race will be sent to all participants at a later date.

We understand this is not the news you were hoping for, but we promise to do our best given this year’s challenges. Over the next several days, we will transition all of our platforms to reflect this information. Please be patient with us as we make this transition.

Please do reach out if you have any questions in regards to the new race format.

Happy Running,
Cajun Road Runners Club
