Crawfish and Cannons canceled, Goodnight-Loving Run event goes virtual
Following the COVID-19 declarations of Young County and Texas Governor, the Graham Convention and Visitors Bureau has canceled the Crawfish and Cannons event at Fort Belknap and have made Goodnight-Loving Run a virtual run.
The 5th Annual Crawfish and Cannons at Fort Belknap was scheduled for April 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“Crawfish and Cannons this year has been canceled. We are taking safety precautions and everything that the Governor and county judge and everyone is asking,” Graham Chamber of Commerce Manager, Lisa Kinkead, said. “We decided to cancel in the best interest of all — of our community.”
With this being the 5th annual event, Graham had also planned the inaugural Goodnight-Loving 1K, 5K and half-marathon. Kinkead said that though Crawfish and Cannons has been canceled, the run will still be conducted just in a different format.
“We do want to remind people to sign-up to do the virtual run and all that information can be found on our website,” Kinkead said. “This will be done similar to how Spivey Hill Challenge is doing theirs.”
For runners that have already signed up, according to the Run Sign Up, they have an option for a full refund, defer registration to next year or participate in a virtual run.
A virtual run is a race that can be run, walked or cycled from anywhere the person chooses. This can be done on a road, trial or even on a treadmill. Individuals can do this at their own pace.
