The 2020 and 2021 Run in the Name of Love Races Have Been Cancelled

UPDATE: September 3, 2020. After extensive monitoring of the fast-developing local, state, and national efforts to try to contain the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Run in the Name of Love 2K/5K, originally scheduled for June 21st, as well as to pre-emptively cancel the event in June 2021 as well. This will help ensure the safety of you and our many other volunteers, spectators, partners, and our community. The 2020 and 2021 races will NOT be rescheduled nor will we create “virtual” events.

All entrants in the 2020 2K and 5K races were contacted and orovided a full refund via Active.com on the credit card used to purchase their race entry. 

Like you, we are all disappointed to have to cancel the race indefinitely, but we strongly feel it is the responsible thing to do to adhere to our mission to create beautiful events that promote health and fitness in our community.

We appreciate your patience, understanding, and concern during this trying time. For more information about our decision to cancel the 2020 race, please read our full press release. If you have additional questions, please send an email to info@bsim.org.

Run in the Name of Love is a unique event offering runners and walkers the opportunity to honor and pay tribute to the very special people in their lives. Participants will enjoy the charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea, it’s historic sites, the unparalleled natural beauty of the course (with views of sandy white beaches, the dramatic Pacific Ocean, Point Lobos and Pebble Beach) and a memorable finish celebration.  Begin your Father’s Day celebration with exercise, challenge and fun!  Perhaps you would like to make this a meaningful run or walk by “running in the name” of someone you love and honoring them with a tribute bib? Or register in our Father/Daughter, Father/Son, Mother/Daughter, or Mother/Son division and run the 5k with a family member!
