Race Calendar Updates 2020

Another 2020 race has bitten the dust. The St. Michaels Running Festival is out. I’m opting for a deferral to 2021. And to think that I opted out of 2019 for 2020. It sounds like getting to the race date is harder than running the race itself. Four Spring races now canceled due to the […]
