Paddy’s Pig Run/Walk 5K for 2020 - CANCELLED

Dear Paddy’s Pig Supporters,

I think this is our 18th year of racing and fun. Back in the winter months our committee had chosen June 26th as the 2020 Paddy’s Pig 5K Run/Walk date. The city of Bellefontaine approved our parade permit, members worked on t-shirt pricing, chipped timing, Food Trucks discussed and the beer garden plans laid out.

Then a very scary Pandemic hit our world, our country, our state, and our county. As of this evening 18 citizens are confirmed as having had COVID 19. The good news is that folks are recovering, there were no deaths and no new cases since April 24th. That being said there are many things up in the air, so to speak, and many unknowns.

So our committee and church, Saint Patrick, want to thank you for your continuous support as we announce that we have made the decision to cancel the race this year.

There are many unknowns as parade permits are on hold, and the virus itself causes concern, and we don’t want to risk loosing funds we’d have to commit to the race, or disappointing vendors or runners should we have to cancel. So, we will miss seeing all of you and visiting with you after the race. We look forward to the 2021 race, and ask God to bless you abundantly and watch over you and your families.

Take care in these challenging times and unchartered territory. If you need food, come to our church Food Pantry. Help one another and next year’s race will be here before you know it.

Thank you.
