About the Virtual Event and COVID-19

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our running community. Guidelines are changing every day and new challenges presenting themselves in this new environment.

The health and safety of both our participants and their families remain our primary concern. Based on our risk assessment, available resources, and the ability to obtain the permits to hold an event this size, the RunFit team has made the decision host the Miles for Minds to a virtual event.

RunFit prides itself on being able to provide a safe and positive race experience for everyone. While we would love to see each one of you at our finish line in-person, at this time your health and safety is more important.

Be sure to follow social distancing and other safety measures provided by the State of New Mexico and your local government regarding COVID-19 as you participate.
