The uncertainty of COVID-19 has caused many races across the nation to be cancelled, go virtual, or be rescheduled. Unfortunately, RROY listings are no exception. Runnin’ of the Green went virtual and deferred racers to 2021. Daniel’s Race has been rescheduled to 8/22/2020. The whole Lilac Festival was cancelled. Iron Angel was cancelled. As of 5/13/2020, two June races are showing to be rescheduled: McMullen Mile and Medved 5K to Cure ALS. When we receive new dates from those race directors, we’ll update our information. Races that do not happen in person will not be counted for RROY standings, even if they have a virtual counterpart.

On a related note, if you run their virtual counterparts, those miles do count for Greater Rochester Track Club’s Mileage Patch totals, so long as they are counted only once. In other words, you can’t race two or more virtual races using the same mileage and count that mileage twice.
