RESOURCE PAGE FROM USA RUNNING: “Resources, news, statements and more from around the global running industry” can be found on this page from usarunning.org. Whether as an individual you are interested in learning the status of a specific event or hope to be updated on the effect of the pandemic on events in general, information is available. The main focus is on “aggregating news, event organizer statements and public resources from official sources relevant to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic here”.
Categories of some, but not all, included links that may be of help to the public:
There’s a great deal of additional information aimed at assisting race organizers and other running industry members with handling the changes made necessary by the situation.
Many of us at home are eager for news, that which is encouraging and hopeful, but also helps us navigate the new world of infectious danger. Perhaps it will also help to turn away momentarily from general news to coverage that looks forward to resumption of normal sport activity.
For example, a statement from race organizer Beth regarding the 10th Fort2Base Race scheduled for later August 2020 indicates organizers are continuing to make preparations “unabated”. It’s a bit of a boost to look ahead and imagine the event will take place as it has for 9 years and that training should begin on schedule.
For some RunningUSA’s page may be a hopeful look toward the close of a frightful period.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
