I assume most of you knew this was coming. Since this falls inside the 6 week window of school closures, with all the uncertainty right now, and because most of the businesses that make our stuff for the event are closed indefinitely, we are going to cancel and just put everything aside to be ready for April 2021.
Coopsters- I'll send out an email in early fall seeing who is in for 2021. The Self Blue D'Uccle will be moved to our 2021 theme.
We might entertain doing an informal Gallus Gallus 2 Mile Dash in the fall to help fundraise for Tour de Coop 2021.
Please thank Bleyhl Co-op and Kagen's Coffee and Crepes for being our main sponsors. The best way to say thanks is to give them our business!
I hope you are well and taking advantage of the positives of a situation like this one. I keep reminding myself that as quick as this all came on, it is possible that things can get back to normal just as quick. And more importantly Great Things Always Come Out of These Types of Situations.
We will keep you all informed about when Runners of the Sage will start it's weekly runs again too.
Let me know if you have any questions.
This running event is a fundraiser for and to kick off the Tour de Coop Tri-Cities
