26th Annual Memorial Medical Center Cruisin’ the Corridor 5k/10k

Hello Cruisin’ the Corridor Participants,

I am sorry to announce we have cancelled the 2020 5 & 10 K Cruisin’ the Corridor Race.  Given the uncertainty of community spread and the current resurgence as cities re-open, the race committee is in agreement that this is the safest action both for participants, volunteers and Ashland residents.

The annual race is the biggest fundraiser for the Vaughn Library.  While we can offer a 50% refund, we would be grateful if you considered your 2020 registration fee a donation to the library and the Ashland Rotary.  Please reply to this email with your choice.

Sarah Adams
Vaughn Library Director
