New River Trail Dr Ed Dannelly 10K Run

Printable Race Form – 10K-Form-2020

Saturday, May 2, 2020  – Cancelled but we will offer a Virtual race instead. Information below.


Due to the orders of our governor and the continued threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) The New River Trail 10K Run has been cancelled for May 2, 2020.

Instead of our traditional race, we are going to offer a virtual race option for runners who are looking for ways to still compete with others and their own race times. We know everyone has enjoyed our race in the past and our race T-shirts. We still want to provide an opportunity for everyone to participate in this event, but also follow all coronavirus precautions and restrictions.

We know many of our runners always look forward to the chance to support the Dr. Dannelly Park, as we always use this race as a fundraiser for the park. This year we will continue to do this with a virtual race.

We will offer a virtual option for the 10K run & 5K Walk.

The Virtual Dr. Dannelly New River Trail 10K Run & 5K Walk can be run on any course of at least 10K & 5K distance (Trail or Road). This will lessen travel requirements. Anyone running the virtual race must adhere to the social distancing requirements of less than 10 people in a group and 6ft distance between individuals. The virtual race will allow everyone to run individually and submit their times. Awards will be mailed to the top 3 Male and top 3 Female 10K overall winners. No age group awards.
The 5K Walk will not have awards, but we will post the results of both races on our website and facebook sites a few days after the race submittal time.
T-shirts will only be ordered for registered runners/walkers. Shirts will be ordered after May 1 and mailed to participants later.

Instructions: To be included in the results/awards you must fill out the registration form from the link above for either the 10K race or the 5K Walk
use the form listed on the Galax Parks and Recreation website 10K link. 10K entry fees will follow the same guidelines that are on the form early/late registration fees.
Your entry includes a race result listing and race T-shirt that will be mailed at a later date. Only athletes who mail in their entries/fee will be entered in the virtual race. All entry forms must be received by May 1.

Virtual runs must be completed between May 1 and May 8 and a screenshot or printout of uploaded GPS data must be emailed to the race director no later than May 9th.
