IMPORTANT UPDATE:

It is with heavy runners’ hearts that we announce the CANCELLATION of the June 21st, 2020, Miramichi Rock ‘n Run. 😭

In our decision, we considered the uncertain timeline of the Covid-19 pandemic, the type of intimate work required in these months leading up to the event, and mostly, the health and well-being of our running community and beyond.

Take care and be safe, fellow runners. Be sure to enjoy some solo running- it’s the best kind of social distancing! A long run on a quiet, rural NB road can clear the head and push the wall for some fit and fast Fall 2020 racing! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🙌🏅🎉

But, be sure to run with the wise advice of one of our faithful RnR volunteers, “No snot rockets!” 😂 (but seriously)😬😷

Stay strong, runner friends!❤️
