Sunburst Races presented by KeyBank, is moving to the fall for 2021.  While this is much different than our typical early June race day, the date was pushed back to help ensure we are able to hold the race in-person.

  • Sunburst will offer packet pickup on Friday, September 24, 2021 at Four Winds Field, home of the South Bend Cubs.
  • Participants will be able to pick up their bibs before they lace up for some Saturday fun!
  • On race day, Saturday, September 25, 2021, the races will start at Four Winds Field. Our finish location is TBD.
  • The multiple events offered make it possible for all fitness levels to participate. We offer a half marathon, a 10K run, a 5K run, and a 5K fitness walk.

As we continue to navigate the complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is very likely that we will be taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe.  As race day approaches, detailed information will be shared.  Potential precautions could include COVID screenings, an open start, social distancing, face masks, etc.  In collaboration with our Medical Director and Medical Advisory Board, we will closely monitor the situation and follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Like you, we are anxiously awaiting an in-person race.  Let’s work together to make it happen and to keep all participants, volunteers, sponsors, spectators and staff safe.

The truth is…we can’t wait to see you at the finish line!  Have your phone ready; it will be an exciting moment you’ll definitely want to capture with a celebratory photo.
