St. Luke’s FitOne moves to an all-virtual format for 2021

Posted on August 17, 2021, by Eric Stride

For months, we’ve been excitedly preparing for the return of St. Luke’s FitOne’s in-person event in September. But over the past month, we’ve seen significant increases of COVID-19 spread in the community. Due to this, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person St. Luke’s FitOne event and move to an all-virtual format this year.

Our participant’s safety, health and wellbeing are our top priority to us. That’s why St. Luke’s FitOne was created – to build a community that supports everyone’s journey to a healthier self.

We are disappointed that we won’t be cheering our participants across the finish line this year, but just because our in-person event has veered off course doesn’t mean it’s over. Our virtual races are still on!

Participants who signed up for an in-person race, will automatically be converted to a same-distance virtual race to complete during the week of Sept. 19-25. Participants can plan their own course and race it between September 19-25!  

We’ll be mailing participant’s race packet by Sept. 17, so, if you are registered, please verify that your shipping address is up to date by logging into your RunSignUp account. In addition, participants who registered after our June 30 kickoff, will be refunded any amount paid over $30.

All St. Luke’s FitOne proceeds support St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital and go directly back into our community to support the health and wellbeing of kids through nutrition education and active living programs. But we understand that for some participants, there’s no substitute for the in-person race. If you’re registered and would prefer a refund, you can log into your RunSignUp account to request a refund or utilize the refund request function in the email we will send you directly from RunSignUp. We expect processing refunds will up to 14 days. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Whether we’re racing together or apart, we’re still part of the same team. We look forward to seeing you back in person in 2022.
