16 Years of runBlossom!
In keeping with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's recommendation that all gatherings larger than 10 people be cancelled, the annual Cañon City Music and Blossom Festival will no longer take place on May 2-3. Therefore, the runBlossom race will also not be held at that time. While the Blossom Festival may be rescheduled in July, the race committee schedule for summer is not determined. We cannot be certain that the chosen weekend will be appropriate or possible to hold the 5K and 10K races.
- If the event is rescheduled and you cannot or do not wish to attend, your registration fee will be refunded.
- If the event is rescheduled and you'd like to join us, your registration will be transferred.
- If the event becomes a virtual event and you'd like to give it a try, your registration will be transferred.
- If the event is cancelled and you'd like to donate your race fee to FAR, we will be grateful for your kindness
This year, we are proud and excited to partner with Sneakers4Funds to help re-purpose used running shoes. Did you put a lot of miles on your training shoes but they still have some life left in them? Bring them to packet pickup or the race and drop them in our designated bin. We'll send them off to this great organization, who will then sent them to business owners in developing countries who will reuse the shoes.
