Due to the current public health crisis and government mandates, the Pear Blossom Run is joining a growing trend in the running community and will host the first ever Virtual Pear Blossom Run/Walk.  This is a great option because it allows us to continue the tradition, even if we have to be isolated, quarantined, or alone.  This provides opportunity for convenience and flexibility and it facilitates connection with people in our community and around the country who share the same passion for health and fitness.  Just think, no parking problems, no crowds, and no port-a-potty lines!

No one could have ever imagined that in an age where people are more connected than ever before, that we would be having to practice social distancing and isolation.  We understand how disappointing this is and we know many of you have trained hard for this event.  We also know that feeling you get when you accomplish something challenging.  Physical exercise is so important for stress management and good for the immune system.

The Pear Blossom Run isn’t just about the run, it’s about community!  We invite everyone near and far to join us at the Pear.  Friends and family all around the country can participate by going solo on a course of their choice, whether that be outdoors, or indoors on a treadmill, a jog around the neighborhood, or walk around the block, at a time that is personally most convenient.  You’ll have an opportunity to log your event finishing time and download a finisher certificate.  Medals, shirts (if ordered by April 11) and goodie bags will be available between May 4 to May 9.

VIRTUAL PEAR RUN/WALK TIME FRAME IS SATURDAY, APRIL 11 TO APRIL 30
BIB PACKETS WILL BE MAILED TO ALL REGISTRANTS STARTING APRIL 6
