SUNBURST RACES | 08.08.2020

Sunburst Races Presenting Sponsors are Beacon Health System, KeyBank and Beacon Children's Hospital

Important Update

Our rescheduled race date is Saturday, August 8, 2020. Due to many variables, including the cancellation of Notre Dame’s commencement and many other unknowns, our races are unable to finish in the stadium or on the Notre Dame campus. All events will start and finish at Four Winds Field, home of the South Bend Cubs.

Sunburst Races and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are evaluating all aspects of the race and implementing several new measures to help keep our participants, partners, volunteers and staff safe. We ask that everyone follow the protocols we implement - - from social distancing efforts to utilizing hand-washing and sanitizing stations, etc.

Packet pickup and race day will look very different from previous years. However, safety is our top priority. Newly added measures are being made to help keep everyone safe and healthy while still allowing us to do what we love… run/walk and celebrate accomplishments!
