We have researched and worked through many options in an attempt to hold the MRTR as planned, but are unable to come up with a safe solution to holding the race in a traditional fashion this year. We must consider the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, and the Upriver community. In addition, the USFS has not changed their plans to keep the forest closed through September.
Therefore, we have decided to hold a Virtual Race instead. All registered runners will have the option to run 31 miles in a COVID safe fashion and submit evidence of their run for a virtual finish. See the Race Details page for details.
