Thank you so much for your patience as our team worked on the postponement of the 2020 Under Armour Spring Run-Off. First off, let us say that we are as disappointed as you are that we won’t be running in High Park on April 4th, but the safety and well-being of our participants, volunteers, event staff, spectators, families and the community at large is always our top priority.
Instead of it being our opening race, we are looking forward to closing out the Canada Running Series season in High Park on our new date of November 7th. In place of cherry blossoms, we’ll get to see the fall leaves turning in Toronto’s most beautiful park.
What does this mean for your registration? You have two options, each including a free Virtual Race to keep your training enthusiasm high:
- Postpone your race to this fall. Date: Saturday November 7th, 2020.
- Defer your race to next spring. Date: Saturday April 10th, 2021.
Both options are free of charge. You have until Thursday, April 16th at 11:59 p.m. EDT to decide which option works best with your schedule. Once you’ve made your choice, follow these steps to lock in your new race date:
- Log into your Participant Dashboard (http://raceroster.com/signin)
- Use your email associated with your Race Roster account,
- Select ‘Yes, I have a Password’ and enter your password
- Click on ‘edit registration data’
- Update your selection by picking the postponement date or deferment date.
- Get ready to run your Virtual Race!
What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is completed at a time and place of your choosing. You will run or walk the race distance that corresponds to the distance you signed up for – either 8K or 5K – and once complete, you will visit Sportstats to upload your race time. Your finishers medal will then be mailed out to you! Kids Run participants can also enjoy their own virtual race, complete with medal mailed out to them, but we do not require them to upload their time to Sportstats.
We will have more information regarding the virtual race, such as the timeline you need to run it in, available in the coming weeks, so watch your inbox for that exciting announcement!
If you’ve been fundraising, the good news is fundraising will remain open until the fall. Every dollar you’ve raised so far will still go to support discovery and innovation by the scientific and clinical teams at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Whether you choose to run this fall or next spring, we’re here to support you. Our customer service team is ready to answer your questions and to make sure you’re set up to have a great race experience. You can reach out to us on Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Instagram or at email@example.com any time.
Entries are non-refundable as per our refund policy. You can find our full registration policies here.
The excitement of running through High Park in the fall, or next spring is something we hope carries you through training until your feet hit the start line.
