After going over many details and many days of planning we have decided for everyone’s health and safety to reschedule The Mermaid 5k/ Mermaid Mile, The new date will be August 22nd with the same time and same place. It was a very difficult decision to make but we strive to make sure the health and safety of our runners and attendees will always come first . We also wanted to make sure that we had all the resources and supplies we needed for this event to be successful and right now that would be a very difficult task to accomplish. This run is still going to be as magical and mermaid filled as it was planned to be, if not even bigger and better! We will be putting in extra effort over the next couple of months to bring more amazing things to this run and in doing so hopefully it will help the local community and businesses that are currently suffering financially and bring back some much needed joy and happiness. We hope that you still plan to join us for this amazing run and we wish you all good health and wellness.
