We've Gone Virtual!
Due to COVID-19, the 2nd Annual Murphy Half Marathon, 10K and 5K has gone VIRTUAL!
All proceeds from this event benefit the Kyle Kucauskas Education Foundation
Given the current health crisis and despite our efforts to reschedule this event, the City of Murphy has made the decision NOT to permit the 2020 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K.
Governor Greg Abbott's pandemic orders continue to be in effect, which requires local approval (from City Mayors) for any outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people. The City of Murphy has cancelled all large public events through the end of the year to prevent the spread of COVID-19. With that being said, it is with much angst that we must cancel the 2020 LIVE event and go entirely VIRTUAL, but we believe it is the prudent decision given the current environment.
To that extent, all registrants will automatically be transferred into the Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K. All participants who were registered for the 2020 LIVE event have been contacted directly regarding their registration.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We also want to thank the City of Murphy and Murphy Police Department for their efforts to try to reschedule this event. We appreciate their guidance and support over the last several months during this difficult time.
Grit and perseverance are words that have meaning in our running community. We have no doubt that we will get through this together. Thank you for your continued support. The AMPT Team wishes you good health today and always. ❤️
