For the health and safety of our community, we are changing the Blue Line Family Run from a large event to a virtual run. It hurts to add one more thing to the seemingly never-ending list of closures, cancellations and disruption to our regular everyday life. Yet, here we are.
All registered runners are now transferred to the virtual race.
Several proactive measures to help cease the spread of COVID-19 at the local and state levels, such as social distancing and restrictions of large-scale events have led us to this decision. With these measures in place for at least 8 weeks, this would put us into the middle of May, well beyond our event date.
You will still receive your shirt, medal, commemorative cup and all things in the goody bag. Multiple packet pick up dates will be updated and communicated soon. Virtual runs will be on the honor system. We trust you to run your best and wear your medal with pride. Be sure to wear your shirt and show off our wonderful sponsors who were also looking forward to being at our event.
We are sad for our outreach organization that will feel the effects of the loss of revenue that this event brings in to use during the holiday season. We cannot offer any refunds as the shirts, medals, all things swag are here. We will miss seeing our amazing supporters and athletes who make this all possible.
That being said, outside is not closed. Go for a run! It’s good for your physical and mental health.
Set a date for your virtual run. Train for it. Work for it. Set your own PR. Then tell us about it! Post in this event space for a virtual fan club. While running is often considered a solo sport by outsiders, I think the running community will agree it’s a very social sport and runners love to cheer each other on. We’d love to see a picture of you wearing your shirt, your route, your time, anything you’d like to celebrate from your virtual run.
Registration for our virtual event will remain open until April 24, 2020 at midnight. After that we will be having on-line exciting opportunities for 2020 registered runners to win free entries to our 2021 race!
Be sure to follow this page and our event for more information on our contests.
We will be drawing names of those runners who shared pictures of their virtual run/walk, and live on Facebook for free entries for the 2021 Blue Line Race! The kiddo’s registered for the free Kids Fun Run will have an opportunity to win a race shirt from this 2020. In these difficult times we are still trying to make this a fun event for our amazing community of runners!
The Blue Line Family thanks you for your continued support. 100% of the proceeds from our events, such as this run, go to benefit the men and women of Wentzville Police Department in times of need and help’s in our community outreach efforts. We wouldn’t exist without our great community.
It’s not too soon to start looking forward to an amazing run in 2021. We will see you there. Registered runners please be on the lookout for an email with more details!
