MEDIA 5 MILE RACE CANCELED
A Message from the Race Board of Directors:
To the runners, patrons, sponsors, spectators, volunteers and visitors of the Media 5 Mile Race that have supported our event for 41 years, the Board of Directors and Race Organizers of the race would like to announce the following message.
After careful and repeated discussions and meetings, and following the recommendations of our State and Local government officials, the Officers and Board of Directors of the Media Five Mile Race would like to advise everyone that we will be cancelling the 2020 race due to the rampant virus and health threat that is engulfing our state and country. To date there are more than 14,500 known positive COVID 19 infections in the state of Pennsylvania. In an attempt to keep our runners, volunteers, spectators, business community, and residents of Media, Pa. safe, we have decided to cancel this years race. The health of the 1800 runners, thousands of visitors and spectators, and the over 5200 residents of Media, Pennsylvania is at the forefront of this decision, and we will do what is right for all. If you have already registered and paid for this years race, we will contact you directly.
Please be safe and we will see everyone (next year) on Friday, June 18, 2021, for a bigger, better and healthier race. Thank you all for your years of support and again please be safe and stay healthy.
Ernie Derrickson, Jr.
