Grand Blue Mile postponed / March 18, 2020
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our participants and spectators. As we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, new information and guidance from city, state and national officials regarding the potential impact to the safety of large crowds gathered at events has mandated the postponement of the 2020 Grand Blue Mile to a future date.
When it becomes evident community events no longer pose a threat to public health, as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Grand Blue Mile organizers will collaborate with local officials to identify a new event date and communicate plans and procedures to all 2020 registrants and local media.
In the meantime, additional information, including a comprehensive FAQ regarding the postponement, is available at DrakeRelays.org.
