CBHM Goes Virtual Run Anywhere, Anytime June 6-13, 2021
Covered Bridges Half Marathon-A “VIRTUAL” community based 13.1 mile road race.
Anyplace, Anytime June 6-13, 2021.
CBHM GOES VIRTUAL for 2021 and You Are Invited
In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and prioritize the health and safety of our community and our participants, CBHM Inc. race directors and race committee have decided to move forward with a Virtual Half Marathon 29th annual event.
Our race planning committee and leadership team explored a multitude of scenarios that led us to conclude the event could not be executed on our racecourse from Pomfret, Vermont to Quechee, Vermont during the pandemic with the enthusiasm and atmosphere our runners have come to expect. More importantly, we simply cannot offer a traditional race in a manner where the safety and security of our runners, volunteers, and spectators is optimally achieved.
Your continued support and participation in 2021 is very important to us. Each year part of your race registration is given back to our host communities. We donate over $50,000 back to our local youth groups, non-profits, and recreation departments. These are the volunteers who take care of you during our race!
How Our Virtual Race Works
Rally a team of friends and register to run our virtual 1/2 marathon in your own community. Run or walk the distance on a course of your choosing, and then simply report your time using RACE JOY or other timing method to be added to our national results leaderboard. (You don’t even have to record your time if you prefer not to!)
Complete your virtual run (or walk or even stroll) between Sunday, June 6th and Sunday June 13, 2021.
We will miss seeing you in person, so please tag #cbhm2021 on social, so we can cheer you on and congratulate you on a great race!
