Unite Half Marathon at Rutgers Has Been Cancelled

Due to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Governor Murphy issued a statement that all public gatherings of 250 more attendees should be cancelled. This coupled with the closure of Rutgers University has prompted us to make the difficult decision to cancel the Unite Half Marathon, scheduled for Sunday, April 19.
The safety of our participants is paramount, and we thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this difficult time. In the next few days, we will provide you details on what options you will have moving forward. We’re confident each of the options will provide all runners a suitable resolution.

We will communicate these options through email, Facebook, and our website.

We encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with the World Health Organization’s suggested safety precautions including regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and avoiding close contact with anyone showing signs of illness.

Below are recommended habits on how to prevent the spread of infectious illness and proper etiquette to consider while running.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Clear your nose away from other runners.
  • Dispose of your drink cup, gel packs, and other personal items in the proper receptacle.
