2020 Honeywagon Runs Have Been Canceled

Saturday, March 28, 2020

Honeywagon Runs are Cancelled for 2020.

We are sure you are all aware of the ongoing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is occurring. We have been closely monitoring the development of this virus and any updates from the Whatcom County Health Department . As this health issue continues to evolve, the GBRC Board has been discussing the necessary steps we should take to keep our community healthy and safe.

We have been seeking guidance from the Whatcom Health Department in regards to our races and as of Tuesday March 10th, the current recommendations are to cancel or postpone any non-essential large public gatherings. They have this recommendation to extend through March 31st and potentially longer.

Unfortunately, we would rather be precaution than have our community members be at risk. At this time the GBRC Board has come to the decision that we will be CANCELLING this years Honeywagon Runs.

I am sure you all are as disappointed as we are that the event is CANCELED. We do not take this decision lightly. The work that our runners, volunteers, and organizers have done to prepare for this race is not underrated nor unnoticed. Each of our races cultivates a heartfelt community event because part of our mission at GBRC is to build community. However, we cannot do this properly if our community will be at risk by participating in our event.

THANK YOU so much for your interest in the Honeywagon Runs . We look forward to having you join us next year!

We urge you all to stay informed and please take care of yourselves during these uncertain times. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Thank you all,

Sabrina Houck and Larry Lober (loberlober@frontier.com)
GBRC President and Honeywagon Race Director
