2020 is over!!!! Welcome to 2021! Unfortunately, we are still being haunted by the ghost of 2020. Graeme’s Run slipped in last year just before Covid reared its ugly head, but we can’t escape the Covid repercussions this year. With Harris County at an increased threat level, the city of Katy isn’t permitting public events. That means, we will NOT hold the 5k and 1 mile run/walk this year. HOWEVER, GRAEME’S RUN WILL CONTINUE! After working with the City of Katy, No Label Brewery, and talking to lots of friends & family, we’ve come up with another format that will safely allow us to continue to honor our son and fund important congenital heart defect research through the Children’s Heart Foundation.
In order for us to not be packed into No Label, we will be extending the length of the event. Instead of our normal 2 hours, we will be at No Label from 9AM to 2PM on February 20, 2021. This longer window will allow us all to maintain proper social distancing and give you plenty of time to grab your packet and say hi. No Label is a large, outdoor venue, with plenty of room to spread out. Like previous years, there will be free beer for those of age. We will also have our great raffles and silent auctions again. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased by cash, check, or credit card at packet pick-up or on the day of the “run”. You do not need to be present to win. If you’re comfortable, feel free to come anytime to grab a beer (or not) and celebrate heart warriors and heart angels everywhere. Please keep in mind that No Label has a strict mask policy that will be enforced (they can get shut down if not enforced). If you are up from a table, a mask must be worn. Once you are sitting down, no mask is required.
To keep up with the digital times, we would love it if you would post some pictures of your own virtual Graeme’s Run/Walk of whatever distance you choose to our Graeme’s Superheroes Facebook page during the run week/weekend. Even if it is just you sitting around the house in your run shirt, sporting your run bib, or drinking from your Graeme’s Run pint glass, we’d love for everyone to be able to see people in their gear!
All registrants will receive a Graeme’s Run t-shirt, run packet, and all adults will receive a Graeme’s Run pint glass. All of the money raised will be donated to The Children’s Heart Foundation. So please stop by and celebrate with us.
***Register by 2/8/21 to be sure you receive a run shirt!
