COVID-19 Race Update

COVID-19 Race Update

We’ve been working diligently with our permitting agencies in hopes that the Unite half marathon could take place in April 2021.  Unfortunately, due to the statewide mandate on outdoor gatherings (50 persons maximum) and the current University regulations we have made the difficult decision to postpone the race until 2022.

  1. All 2020 deferrals will be honored for the 2022 race. You do not need to do anything now however in the Fall when registration opens you will receive a complimentary code from us at which time you can enter the race.


  1. If you do not want to run in-person in 2022 you may defer to 2023. You will need to email Suzanne,, to switch to the 2023 event.


  1. We will also offer a virtual option for the 2022 race. You will be eligible to switch to the virtual run (in lieu of a deferral) when we open in the fall of 2021.


  1. You may switch to the Love Run Philadelphia half marathon which will take place in the fall of 2021. We are currently confirming this date with our permitting agencies. You can choose this option, once we have the date, thru 6/1/21.


  1. Choose another race in the Motiv Running/CGI Racing portfolio. Choose from any the races included here. (If you choose the NJ State Triathlon your entry fee will be applied towards the current NJST entry fee and you will be responsible to pay the remaining difference). Once you have decided on another race please email Suzanne,

2020 Virtual Runners – All 2020 runners who participated in the 2020 virtual run and received the shirt and medal are not eligible for the 2022 deferral.
