Historic Germantown 8K - Virtual Entry

$40 Registration ends December 31, 2020 at 11:59pm EST
The 2020 Historic Germantown 8K is now a Virtual Only Event

To our runners, walkers, friends, and community members,

It is with great sadness that we have to cancel the 3rd Annual Historic Germantown 8K. Simply put, it is not our choice. You only have a race if you have a permit to produce a race and unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic, we will not be issued permit to host this event. We completely understand and support the decision made by the City of Germantown and understand how an event of our size doesn't fit the current guidelines.

That said if you have not registered and would still like to be a part of our virtual event, we would love to have you! Simply hit the X in the top right, click sign up, and register! 

We'll end by stating that we get the frustrations everyone feels. The Advanced Running Project is owned and operated by a competitive runner who longs to race and to produce races. Thus this is obviously not the end result we wanted either. Know that we will be back though and we appreciate your continued support in the interim. Until then, keep running because running isn't cancelled!
