TUSCALOOSA TOURISM & SPORTS HALF Marathon
13. 1 Miles of Fun
8th Annual Race
Tuscaloosa Alabama // March 28th, 2020
Due to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19), and to ensure safety for the Tuscaloosa community, Mayor Walt Maddox announced the cancellation of all city events for the remainder of March. This includes all public events hosted, permitted or on property owned by the city. This cancelation of public events includes the Tuscaloosa Half Marathon and 5K.
As a result, we will hold a virtual event for 2020. Our team has been hard at work to get your race packets in the mail, which include your participant shirt, race bib and medal. While we wish circumstances were different and that we would be able to greet you at the finish line in person to hand you your hard earned medal, we still want to be able to virtually share in your run. Whether you choose to run the distance this weekend or at a date and time in the future, please tag us, #RunTuscaloosa, in your posts so we can celebrate with you. If you’ve already run your virtual race, please share a pic of your medal with us once you receive it.
Please remember to practice social distancing while running and stay healthy during this very difficult time.
Our team at FRESHJUNKIE Racing is comprised of endurance athletes, so we understand the disappointment that comes with having an event canceled that you’ve committed to. This is an unprecedented global health issue and acting responsibly to protect our runners, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, staff and community is a top priority. We appreciate your support and understanding.
