My name is Bryan Lambert, Seaway Run race director 2020. Before I dive into some important updates about this year’s race I want to give a big shout out to our local and national healthcare and essential workers. The sacrifice you’re making on a daily basis is inspiring and appreciated. Thank you all!
Like many of you, the Seaway Run has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. What some of you may not know is that it’s a fundraiser. Funds raised by the Seaway Run contribute to health and wellness initiatives led by the Muskegon YMCA and the Muskegon Rotary Club. If you’re not familiar with the incredible community impact made by these two organizations, I encourage you to visit their websites for more information.
As many of you may have heard, due to COVID-19, this year’s Mercy Health Seaway Run will not be proceeding as usual. But, it’s not canceled! Instead of an in-person race day, we’re hosting a virtual race week. During race week (June 27th through July 4th), put on your race shirt and your bib and head outside (a safe distance from others) or to your treadmill and run the distance you signed up for. Afterwards, snap a photo and post your results. You can use Facebook and/or Instagram using the hashtag #seawayrun2020.
A few things to note:
- The race you choose determines the swag bag you receive. Each run and walk signup will include a Mercy Health Seaway Run shirt and bib and a complimentary Pigeon Hill beer ticket (for runners 21 and over).
- Packet pick-up will be made available prior to the race but will be carried out in a social-distance drive-through format (location TBD). If you are unable to pick up your packet, your race gear will be shipped to the address you provided during sign-up. If you signed up prior to the race going virtual, please log into http://runsignup.com/ and update your shipping information. We’ll provide additional details closer to the race.
- If you’ve already signed up but would like to defer until next year, please click here for deferral instructions.
Before I sign off, I’d like to give a huge thank you to our current sponsors.
