February 7, 2021 Phoenix, Arizona Paradise Valley Mall
IMPORTANT RACE UPDATE - 11/15/20
Our 2021 Event is cancelled and rescheduled for February 6, 2022
With the current upswing in the Covid-19 pandemic and no immediate end in sight, we have determined that the responsible path to avoid contributing to this situation is to cancel our 2021 Runner's Den Pancake Run presented by IHOP.
We greatly appreciate that IHOP, the City of Phoenix, Brooks and Paradise Valley Mall joined Runner's Den to again support the event this year. Their commitment showed confidence that we could develop procedures to mitigate the challenges to be faced. Now, although these plans have been completed, with the current swelling of the pandemic's numbers and the understanding that a universal vaccine will not yet be available, it is our belief that it is not responsible to go forward and assemble a gathering of this size and nature.
While we are greatly disappointed with the situation, let's remember that this event is simply sport and entertainment and if our caution contributes in even a small way to restricting Covid's spread, our actions are worthy.
We look forward to again producing this great event when circumstances allow and accordingly, we have scheduled it for February 6, 2022. We hope to see you there.
Until then, let's all do our share and keep our distances and mask-up. Have a safe and healthy holiday season,
