It is with much sadness that I have to inform you all that the 2020 Big Frog Trail Runs will not be allowed to proceed this year and will need to be postponed until 2021. Despite our best efforts to try to host this event on October 4th, we have been informed by the USFS in Tennessee that they will not issue a permit for our event due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in the State of Tennessee. We want to be able to provide a challenging, yet safe event for you all so we are hopeful that 2021 will allow us to come together again for these runs.

As we have invested heavily in this event already, all current registrations will be rolled over to the next edition of the event in 2021. Due to the uncertainty of our current situation and varying travel restrictions depending on region, you will be able to use your entry in either 2021 or 2022.

Alternatively, if you have not already signed up for our Pine Mountain 5 or 8 Mile Trail Run on November 8th in Georgia and would like to join us, you may transfer your entry to that event and we will donate any difference in entry fee to the Gilmer Cartecay Youth Mountain Bike Team. The Gilmer Cartecay team uses the Big Frog races as a huge fundraiser to cover league fees and expenses. Over 30 kids and parents were scheduled to assist in this year's Mountain Bike and Trail Run races so we are hoping to be able to still help these kids out, if even in a small way.

Please click on the link below to choose your path no later than August 15th. We'd appreciate everyone filling out this form, as this allows us to ensure that we have reached all of those who are registered. If we do not hear from you by August 15th, we will simply roll your entry to next year. All those who choose the rollover option will be contacted in 2021 when new event dates have been determined.

Again we are very disappointed that we could not make this event happen this year, however we are running on and hoping for better conditions in 2021.

Wishing you all long runs and good health!
Lisa Randall
