Every part of life has experienced change as a result of COVID19. Walking, cycling and running have all been impacted in both hard and good ways. We have seen events all over the world postpone, cancel, move to virtual and some have closed their doors due to the financial outcomes associated with these changes. We have also seen families exercising together, more cyclists on the roads as well as more people enjoying the vast beauty and glory of nature.
While the last six months have presented many difficulties, inherent in any problem is an opportunity to think outside the box. To that end, the Fitness Industry has put together recommended best practices for events that are taking place, things that can be implemented to help ensure the safety of our people. While there is no way to guarantee that people who participate in an event won't get the virus, there is concentrated effort to help keep walkers, cyclists and runners safe.
The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series is still planning to hold our events in person and we will be implementing best practices to help our people stay safe. We will make changes to all of our events this year and will update registrants as we get closer to each event. Each event is different and will require a unique approach.
Over the course of the next week, we will contact people who have registered for each event, starting with Run the Rock. Make sure you have added us to your safe sender list so our emails are not blocked.
We will also be rolling out a new program called Navigate Missouri! This will include team and individual challenges that highlight something incredible about Missouri. People will be able to walk, run, cycle, hike, canoe or kayak our great state. More to come!
Our mission is to contribute positively to the health and wellbeing of our community, our participants, our volunteers and the charities that we support. We want to inspire all of you to enjoy, love and conserve the great outdoors while becoming the best people you can be. It a pleasure to serve you.
