We hope this message finds you well, safe and healthy, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the current COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of everyone involved in our event as well as the broader community has been our top priority as we have been working closely with our partners at the Aquatennial and our local city agencies over the last few weeks and months to determine what the best path forward for this year’s 2020 Life Time Torchlight Minneapolis 5K is.
With that being said, due to the significant impact and risk COVID-19 continues to pose to our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Life Time Torchlight Minneapolis 5K event originally scheduled to take place on July 22, 2020 in downtown Minneapolis. While this was an incredibly difficult decision and we are heartbroken to not be hosting you this summer, we believe that this is the right decision and that it is in the best interest of all involved.
Current 2020 registrants should’ve received an email from us earlier this afternoon detailing the different options we are offering in terms of your registration for this year’s race, including an option to donate your 2020 entry fee to the Minneapolis Public School District via the Life Time Foundation to support and aid the District as they continue to safely provide school lunches to their students during this time (tax deductible donation – receipt will be provided). If you didn’t receive this email, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to doing what we can to help you and our community through this unprecedented time, and hope you’re as excited as we are to get back out there.
As of today, Aquatennial is still planning for Minneapolis’ civic celebration in July. Details around this summer’s Aquatennial experience are still being finalized to prioritize public safety and health. Look for more about the rest of this summer’s beloved community celebration, Aquatennial, at the end of June on the Aquatennial website.
We will miss seeing you this summer, and we wish you and your loved ones the best. Stay healthy and safe.
Thank you for your continued support. We’re in this together.
Your Torchlight 5K Team
