CoolEvents Releases Statement On Coronavirus
March 12, 2020
Currently monitoring developments
PHOENIX, March 12, 2020 — CoolEvents is closely monitoring developments around the world relating to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 as participant safety and public health are paramount concerns.
We are working with the appropriate municipalities in which our events are held, and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to make sure we follow best policies for our five national event tours.
We are currently planning on hosting our full events calendar for Blacklight Run, Bubble Run, Foam Glow, Muddy Dash, and Terrain Race. As mitigation strategies are put in place across the nation, we realize it may be best to modify some portion of our schedule. Should that happen, we will communicate changes immediately with our participants via email and social media.
