Weather Update

Updated September 22, 2023 – 7:30 pm 

Due to weather concerns, please note the following changes:

1) No activities in the Wells Fargo Parking Lot tomorrow before or after the event due to unfavorable weather conditions.

2) T-shirt & bib pickup at Buddy’s Burgers (11 W. Gay Street, WC 19380) from 7:30 AM until race time (9am).

3) Starting Line Location: The starting line remains unchanged at Church & Market Street. If you already have your bib and shirt, you can head directly to this location to prepare for the race. Kids dash will still go off at 8:45 immediately before the race.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. Your safety is our priority.


**Flexible Options for Your Safety and Enjoyment:**

In light of this, we want to provide you with flexibility and options to ensure your safety and enjoyment during the event. We understand that participating in unfavorable weather can be less than ideal, so we’d like to offer you the opportunity to switch to a virtual participant for this year’s event.  However, if want to still join us in person,  we will be at the race tomorrow to celebrate YOU and all your incredible efforts. Rain or shine, we are here to support and recognize your dedication to the Unite for HER cause.

**Virtual Participation Details:**

If you choose to switch to virtual you have the option to run or walk anytime from tomorrow until Thursday, at a time and location that works best for you(details to come in your email if you make the switch). This way, you can still support the Unite for HER Community and enjoy your experience without worrying about the weather. Please fill out your information on the following form if you’d like to make the switch:

We hope this flexibility allows you to make the most of your Unite for HER Run/Walk experience. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at ccotrufello@uniteforher.org.
