2020 Minor League Baseball Season Cancelled Over Ongoing COVID-19 Concerns

Drive’s 15th Anniversary Season in Downtown Greenville delayed until 2021

The Greenville Drive, in conjunction with Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, and the South Atlantic League today announced that the 2020 season has been cancelled due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic that has swept across the world.

|

The ongoing concern regarding the safety of our community, and Minor League Baseball communities across America – including fans, front office staff, gameday staff, players and coaches – led to this decision.

Minor League Baseball (MiLB) issued the following statement today:
“In light of the current coronavirus outbreak, and after consultation with medical professionals and our partners at Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball will delay the start of the 2020 Championship Season. We will continue to monitor the developments and will announce additional information about the 2020 season at a later date. We will work with Major League Baseball and our community partners to resume play as soon as it is safe to do so. The health and safety of Minor League Baseball fans, players and executives is our top priority, and our thoughts are with those around the world who have been affected by this outbreak.”
Firecracker 5k – Is a go – Virtual and in Person POSTPONED TO Sept.5
Jul 3 – Jul 4 all-day
Brevard

 

On June 10th, 2020, the County Health department advised the Brevard Rotary  that “given the upward direction of the infection numbers, they cannot sign-off on the event on July 4, 2020″.

This event will be postponed until September 5, 2020 when we will run a combined race with the White Squirrel 5K. 

So here we go …. Covid-19 and all

Dear Participant:

Thank you for your continuing support of the, three, Rotary Club of Brevard 5K and Fun runs in 2020.

We are fortunate to have three great sponsors, in the Pisgah Health Foundation, Pardee and Mountain Outdoor Products.

Gordon has laid out a great new course starting and finishing at the new Depot. The City have helped us immensely.

As you know all of the race net proceeds are used in the community, by Rotary, in one way or another. See details below. None of the volunteers are paid.

Our Conundrum for the Firecracker on July 4:

Our goal is to keep everyone safe (runners/walkers and volunteers) while at the same time bringing back some community and competitive exercise opportunities. Yes, we are “open”, but in a controlled way.

Presently we have to keep groups to a maximum of 25 people, and we cannot wait until June 26th , for details of the next phase, to make a change for July 4. So we run under the rules we have in front of us today.

We are offering you three choices to run the Firecracker in 2020

Everyone will sign-up at Runsignup https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/Brevard/Firecracker5kandFunRun

It is first come first served

Through June 14, 2020 the price to participate will be $30; $35 after that date or up to a maximum of 200 runners – we currently have 40 slots allocated, so 160 more participants can register. You will be able to register online up until July 2, 2020 or until we reach 200 runners. Note -this is far short of the 600 we ran last year, but is about all we can ‘safely’ handle.

There are no sign-ups on Saturday (as we cannot handle/ touch the paperwork involved; there is no fun run for the Children (sorry we do not have the volunteers to keep them physically distanced at this run) and no early indoor registration and shirt pick-up on Friday.

1/ Run our course on your own or in a small group and record your own time.

From Monday to Friday, June 29 to July 3, 2020, we will place signs at 7.00AM and remove them at 7.00PM. Once you have registered you can record your time manually. You can collect a shirt on Saturday at the Depot or opt to have it mailed to you for an extra $10.

You run the course on your own and at your own risk. Please be considerate to our neighbors.

2/ Run your own 5K course.

From Monday to Friday, June 29 to July 3, 2020, you can run in the Brevard 5K Firecracker, anywhere in the Country, indeed anywhere in the world (there is a prize for the furthest away), if you wish. Once you have registered you can record your time manually. You can collect a shirt on Saturday at the Depot in Brevard or opt to have it mailed to you for an extra $10.

You run the course on your own and at your own risk. Please be considerate to our neighbors.

3/ Saturday July 4, 2020 – Running with others

We will limit runners/walkers to 150 on Saturday.

Please do not come to the Depot if you are feeling unwell.

The staging area at the DEPOT will have one entrance, on Railroad on the entrance to the depot (the pull in area) – please use that one entrance and physically distance yourself, while you wait.

The staging area will open at 7.00AM – we ask for your patience; our volunteers and the organizers have never done this before.

No one, other than registered runners, walkers, volunteers and public safety officers, will be allowed in the staging area.

At this stage, we require that everyone wear a mask in the staging area (not essential on the run, but preferred.) We will have spare masks for those registered runners/walkers only, who forget their mask.

We will then make sure you are registered and give you a bib.  The Bib, will not have an RFID chip on it – you will be timing yourselves for this run/walk.

You will also be asked for an approximate speed and given a chip with a number on it. Low numbers will be faster runners – walkers’ will be given higher

numbers.

Teams will receive their own number.

You will be directed to your numbered zone, where we ask you to stay until called to the start line.

Each Zone will be called up to the start as soon as another zone has been cleared – the starter controls the time between each group.

AT worst this should have everyone away by 8.40AM

Water will be available on this day only – our thanks to Telco

We hope to celebrate the opening of the depot.

Upon your return; you will be asked your time, or you can enter it yourself at home after the race.

Results will be posted the next week.

Prizes:

Will be given for:

The fastest runners

The One running the race in the most remote virtual location.

The best dressed Covid-19 virus look a like

Everyone will get a shirt and a medal

Funner stuff:

On Saturday, July 4, we will have a starter, the big clock and the all-important finish gate with a professional photographer ready to immortalize your finish.

Once you have finished, you can collect the ‘more-important’ classic race shirt. It will be a collector’s item.

We may have other fun stuff, as well.

Safety:

We will do all we can to keep everyone safe, including our neighbors. Please run in a mask, if that is comfortable – by blowing and puffing you are going to express water droplets a lot further than 6 feet.

There will be no support, marshals or water on the course at any time during Monday to Friday -by signing up you agree you run at your own risk. Please respect our Neighbors ‘health’ and property and do not litter.

Social distancing of 6′ is encouraged at all times.
