In an announcement posted to Facebook, the group stated "We value the health and safety of our runners, volunteers and community supporters above all else. We recognize that our race would not be possible without the help and support of our small businesses. We do not feel that it is ethically or morally right to ask them for monetary sponsorships due to the toll COVID-19 has taken on businesses and communities. These businesses need our support during this difficult time. Please consider spending your registration dollars and time at local businesses so that they and we can come back strong and ready to rally next year."
