Race Information

Race & Event Details

When and where is the 2020 race?

The official 2020 Run4Elise is being rescheduled for August 8, 2020, at Gateway Church off Blessed Way in Southlake, Texas. Don’t live nearby? No problem! Participants can still show their support by signing up to run or walk virtually from anywhere!

We are also offering a VIRTUAL MEMORIAL run/walk for people to show support between June 20 – July 5! Registration for this event is $10, but if you register for the August 8 RACE DAY event, we’ll include the Memorial event for FREE!

Is this an official timed 5K?

Yes! The 5K on Race Day (Aug. 8) is a USTAF certified course around scenic Gateway Church.

Can anyone do the fun run/walk?

You bet! Strollers are welcome. Run or walk at your own pace! We will provide multiple water stops.

What else is offered at the event?

The Run4Elise is designed for the whole family! There will be refreshments, music, sponsor tables, free event photos, and water safety education. We will also present our 2020 Elise Cerami Memorial Scholarship winners, as well as recognize our participants in the 100 Lifeguard Challenge. Race awards will be presented following the 5K.

What are your safety protocols or changes?

IMPORTANT: We will be starting both the 1 mile and 5K events at the same time. However, to ensure safe social distancing, we will be staggering start times in corrals based on anticipated mile pace. For example, if you expect to finish a 5K in 30 minutes, you will start in the 10 minute corral. Corral starts will be staggered by 1-2 minutes. This will help prevent large groups of runners/walkers in the same vicinity, while helping our participants maintain their paces.

We will also be providing ample hand sanitizing stations throughout the event, along with limited contact packet/award pickups. Masks are welcome but not required.

Reminder: Anyone not feeling well or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, nausea, shortness of breath) should stay home! We can move any in-person event registration to a virtual participation at any time!

Virtual Memorial Event Details

  • If you’d only like to participate in the Virtual Memorial event, you may register for that separately for $10. We will mail you your official Run4Elise Race Bib and a large Believe decal. Please note that if you register later than July 1, you might not receive these items in time for a photo!
  • If you’d like to participate in both the Virtual Memorial event AND the Race Day event (either in-person or virtual) on August 8, please register FIRST for the Race Day event. We will then provide you with a coupon code to register for the Virtual Memorial event for FREE! If you plan to be there in person on Race Day, you may pick up your packet and sponsorship swag bag in person, while supplies last. If you plan to participate in both events virtually, we will mail you your official Run4Elise Race Bib, finisher’s medal and event t-shirt (no swag bags…sorry!).
  • After you have completed your run/walk, you will submit your official time via online form. The link to this form, along with instructions on how to record your time, will be sent to you via the email address provided in your registration from RunFar. Official results and/or awards will be provided after the Virtual Memorial event closes. These awards and results are separate from the Race Day event on August 8.
