The Mid-Winter Classic will be virtual (#MWCinTheWild) again this year. How will this happen? With you joining hundreds of people and committing to run 10 miles outside sometime between January 31 and February 6th and submitting your time by 11:59 pm on February 6th.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the surge in the Omicron variant, the in-person running of the race had to be cancelled. This was a difficult decision to make and was reached in part due to the record surge in coronavirus cases, the expected peak in cases for the Omicron variant a week or two before race day, the unpredictability of the weather and our inability to safely provide race services completely outdoors, and the lack of hospital beds available in our area in the case anybody gets injured at the race.
