We hope that this email finds you well and healthy!

As you may have already heard or seen on social media, the Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge is coming back on June 19th & 20th! While the event will look quite a bit different in 2021, then it has in years past, we are so excited to bring more live races back to the Rochester running calendar.

These are some of the ways that 2021 will look different than previous years, the start and finish lines will be in Genesee Valley Park at the request of the City of Rochester, and the event will be split over 2 days allowing you to choose your race day.  In keeping with our COVID-19 guidelines, these include: masks must be worn at the start/finish, post-race food will be in prepackaged grab & go bags. There will not be any spectators and there will be multiple start waves for you to choose from to allow for social distancing.

This email is going to be pretty long to cover everyone's options, so please bear with me.

The below options will be available starting Monday, April 19th, at NOON!

Now, let's get to the options for your deferred registration based on which event you were registered for.

If you deferred your Flower City Challenge registration (that's Half Marathon or 5K) in 2020
You can claim your deferred registration and run on June 19th or June 20th
You can defer to 2022's event by doing NOTHING now (you will have to claim your registration next year)

If you deferred your Flower City Challenge Half Marathon Relay registration in 2020
Team Captains can claim your deferred registration and create your relay team on either June 19th or 20th. Your teammates will need to claim their deferral AFTER you create the team so that they can join your team.
You can defer to 2022's event by doing NOTHING now (you will have to claim your registration next year)
If your teammate is going to be different this year, after you claim your deferral and create your team, then email so that we can give your new teammate access to join your relay team.
