Borodash Family and Friends,
For many months we have been excitedly planning the 11th running of Borodash. Race morning is always an exciting feeling and we love sharing the experience with every one of you. We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19. We have seen a number of other area runs and events either change to a virtual event or pause for this year. We’ve consulted with community leaders and we’ve prayerfully asked for the good Lord’s guidance. Ultimately, we have come to the conclusion that a live event this year is not in the best interest of the community or Borodash. Our mission is to bring glory to God by raising funds for charitable purposes. Our board of directors decided we did not want to tarnish our mission by asking people to take an unnecessary risk. This does not mean that the race will not go on!
As many of you know, we introduced a virtual option to Borodash this year and many of you have already signed up for it. We are pleased to provide this virtual race experience to all our live runners as well! Your in-person registration has been automatically converted over to a virtual registration. We recommend that you download the RaceJoy app to your phone (Download RaceJoy) and enjoy a race day experience wherever you decide to run. Friends and family can track your progress and wish you luck. After you have completed your run, be sure to post your results to the Borodash Event Page (Participant Lookup).
We will have a packet pick-up for all of our virtual runners on Wednesday, November 25th from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm. This will be located at North Blvd Church of Christ, 1112 N Rutherford Blvd, Murfreesboro, TN. We will be offering curbside pick-up for all participants. You will receive your shirt, bib and race medal.
Race day will still begin at 8 am, Thanksgiving morning. You will have the opportunity to complete your race anytime until Sunday, November 29th, 11:59 pm, but we encourage everyone to view our race day kick off at 8 a.m. on Facebook Live!
We appreciate your support over the years and we hope that Borodash can continue to serve by leaving our footprints on our community and on our world! We’d also like to thank our sponsors who are listed here Borodash Sponsors. Show them how much you appreciate their support of Borodash.
