The 2020 Sunburst Races, scheduled to take place August 8, have been canceled out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of participants and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, said Race Director Courtney Kipker. “While we realize how disappointing this is to everyone involved in Sunburst Races, the safety of our runners, walkers, volunteers, staff and spectators has always been our top priority,” Kipker said. “After evaluating all aspects of the race, we determined this would be the best way to protect the health of those running or cheering on our participants, and put the safety of the community first.”
