RUN585 Series

RUN585 - 3 Race Series
5K - 8K - 5K

UPDATE on RACE 2 as of July 20th: (this note went out via Run Sign Up and all our social media channels)

Greetings ALL RUN585 Series and Summer in the City Participants,
Please Read and Feel free to share with friends in case they don't get it or see it.
Out of abundance of caution and using best practices for endurance events, tonight's (July 20th) course will become a 5K (3.1 miles) distance versus the original 8K course.
The race will start at 6PM across the street and it will have the same finish in the field. The course will likely be the Race 3 5K course which can be viewed here:
In addition,
  • We ask that EVERY participant to carry water during the event.
  • There will be an unmanned water stop on course. If you know anyone that can volunteer at it respond to this email asap.
  • Fleet Feet is open if you need any hydration carrying items before you head to the race
  • Walking is perfectly fine! We have many people asking, yes, walking is perfectly fine.
  • Tonight is not the night to be a hero, run/walk smart. No need to go for records tonight. We greatly prefer when athletes finish upright and functioning.
  • Drink throughout today, don't eat anything too heavy this afternoon, but do eat, perhaps pretzels or something salty. And ideally don't eat anything red, like strawberries or cherries. I could insert an unpleasant reason here, but I'll let you determine that one.
  • Have backup hydration in your car for your ride home.
We look forward to seeing you!
All of us at Fleet Feet & YellowJacket Racing
