Finger Lakes 50s and Women’s Distance Festival 5K Canceled for 2020

The FLRC board and race directors regret to announce the cancellation of the Finger Lakes 50s ultramarathon and the Women’s Distance Festival 5K.

As you can guess, we made this decision to comply with New York State regulations and recommendations from public health officials, and because we believe that physical distancing is a necessary measure to slow the spread of the potentially deadly coronavirus. We hate canceling races, but we must all do what we can to reduce infections in our community.

If you are already registered for the Finger Lakes 50s, you can donate your registration fee to FLRC or request a full refund (minus the UltraSignup processing fee). Please email race director Alex Kleinerman at by June 1st with your choice.

For more details or to ask questions, please see the post on the FLRC forum.

The board and race directors will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and evaluate other upcoming club races at our monthly board meetings.

Although all FLRC group runs and workouts have also been canceled, we strongly encourage everyone to exercise regularly to keep your immune system strong. Whatever you decide, avoid large groups and crowded areas when running, and please follow our COVID-19 recommendations.

Stay healthy, stay fit, and we look forward to being able to run together again!
