Recently, Governor Cuomo outlined a plan to reopen New York in four phases, with the entire state remaining on lockdown until May 15th. We thank the state for taking prudent measures to protect the public, but it’s clear that races, festivals, and other large events within the fourth phase category won’t be allowed for the foreseeable future. So what now?
We can’t simply cancel Rugged Maniac New York City and refund everyone because we’ve already spent most of the money on everything we needed to produce the event, from medals and swag to permits and planning. What little that remains is being used to keep the lights on for as long as we can during this difficult time.
But we still want you to get out and run, and we want you to get all of your swag, so we’re putting our remaining resources and efforts into converting the 2020 New York City Rugged Maniac to a virtual fitness challenge with an upgraded swag pack, which now includes a super soft and stretchy quarter-zip ($60 value), a finisher’s medal, vinyl sticker, and race bib.
We’ll ship your swag pack directly to your door in the coming weeks. You must fill out this form by August 1st to ensure we have the correct mailing address. If you signed up multiple participants with your email address, you will need to fill out one form for each participant. Please make sure you’ve selected the right quarter-zip size by checking out the sizing guide here. If your package is returned back to our office because of an incorrect address, we won’t be able to reship it. If you don’t want your swag, then you don’t have to fill out the form and no action is required from you.
Once your swag is selected and address is updated, you’ll plan the ideal day to complete the Rugged Maniac virtual fitness challenge, and then submit your time to receive an official finisher’s certificate! To do so, log in to your EnMotive account here*, find the event on the “Upcoming Races” page, click Log Result, enter your time, and download your certificate.
IMPORTANT: You’ll be refunded for any upgrades you purchased with your registration (VIP, RMX, headbands, etc.) in the next two weeks.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed. We will reply as soon as possible.
On behalf of the Rugged Maniac team, we thank you for your understanding and support during these unprecedented times. When things are back to normal next year, we’ll send you a discount to any future race as thanks for bearing with us.
