As of 11:00 AM this morning, Anna Lewis the Race Director of the ATB has informed the runners of the event that the ATB will NOT proceed on March 29,2020 The decision is based on Public Health concerns over COVID-19. At this time it has not been determined if it is a postponement or a cancellation. An update will follow on many concerns.

Tough to hear this, maybe they can postpone and still run in the fall. For the record, Around the Bay is not in its 126th running. They took many years off during the Great Depression. This would be their 112th.

Morning Rick: When I posted my e-mail regarding the 2020 ATB Road Race, I did not intend to imply it was the 126th running of the race. I should have said it would be the 126th Anniversary of the ATB in 2020. As most runners familiar with the ATB history it was not held for a portion of WW 1, a portion of the Great Depression and all of WW 2. The ATB Road Race is however the oldest road race in North America (since 1894), just not continuous.

As of 10:09 AM, The Around the Bay 126th Anniversary Road Race has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 22, 2020. There are three options for the runners who were registered for the March 29 running. I would advise everyone to check out the ATB Webpage for the application of the three options and any other questions.
