COVID-19 Update

Given the proximity of the Rose Festival to the gathering ban, festival officials have decided to postpone the event until later in the year.
Since our event is part of the Rose Festival, the 2020 Starlight Run will be rescheduled along with the festival. Our team cares deeply about this event, our participants, and the local community. We’re working with the festival on contingency plans to ensure this event can take place when it is safe to do so.
We know this is an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone. We would like to thank you for your support as public safety is everyone’s top priority right now.
