In the wake of all that is going on in the Northland and the world, Grandma's Marathon has made a decision regarding the Fitger's 5K, which was scheduled for April 18.

According to their official press release:

Due to the unpredictability of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), the Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk has been postponed. The event was scheduled for April 18, 2020, and it has now been moved to September 12, 2020. The health and safety of the participants, volunteers, partners, spectators, staff and community remains the top priority at Grandma’s Marathon. The organization will continue to monitor the pandemic with the direction of public health officials.

The Fitger’s 5K is one of three fundraising races in the KP Challenge. Participants commit to run three Young Athletes Foundation (YAF) races, including the Saint Fennessy 4K, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler. The Park Point 5-Miler is still scheduled as planned for July 16, 2020.

The Fitger’s 5K race course will head east from Fitger's for an out-and-back route featuring London Road and lake views on South Street. The event begins at 9:00 a.m. and registration is still open.
