Since the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the American Heart Association has been closely following the guidance from the CDC and state and local health officials regarding our events. The safety of our guests has been and will continue to be our top priority.
As a result, we will be cancelling the physical Heartbeat 5K previously scheduled for Saturday, April 18th and we will be making this event VIRTUAL..The Beat Must Go On!
VIRTUAL EVENT?! What does that mean?
The Beat Must Go on will be a month-long mile tracking competition. That’s right…mile tracking…Let’s get to work!
WHAT’S THE GOAL?
We are challenging each participant to log 100 miles within a 4-week time frame. If you make it to 100 miles…don’t stop there…keep going!! We want to see how many miles this running community can achieve! The goal is to stay active indoors and outdoors, while having fun and relieving stress!
