As we have been keeping a close eye on news about the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the 2nd Annual bit.run 5K for the safety of our runners, staff & community. Ultimately, there is no higher priority for us than the health, safety and physical well-being of each of you, together with everyone else involved in the production of the event. We sincerely thank you for your continued loyalty and patience during this difficult time. All ticket purchasers will be contacted by email.
