It saddens us that our island is back in COVID-19 PCOR-1 again. Just as we were about to make the announcement at the beginning of August, the ability to hold the event has been set back further with no date again. (We're also forced to postpone the 9/20/20 Adults Trench Challenge till further notice.) With this current situation, we have decided to no longer wait and offer a Virtual Option / Exit for the 2020 Trench Kids race especially for a number of kids that cannot participate in the physical event if and when it is rescheduled due to travel restrictions and relocating. 


This virtual challenge is exclusive to all those currently registered for the 2020 Trench Kids originally scheduled back in March.

No new registrants will be allowed, and registrants that have already filed a claim on their Fanshield registration insurance for a refund will not be eligible to participate. 

For more information on some of the questions you may have about deferment, transfers or refunds you can check out the TK 2020 FAQ Page.

The physical event may be on hold, but that doesn't mean the racing challenge has to keep waiting. You can now take on the Kids 1/2 mile and 1 mile challenge from your own home! There are variations to suit every kind of social distancing obstacles that stand in your way. All finishers will receive their 2020 kit to include Finisher shirt and medal. All parents that have placed orders on matching shirts will be included at the Drive-Thru pickup scheduled for Saturday, September 12th at the GFA Harmon Soccer Field parking lot.

Participants submitting from abroad will need to make arrangements and depending on country or registration rate paid, the  difference for postage may be required.
