The US Forest Service has determined it will not be issuing any recreational event permits for the remainder of 2020, forcing the cancellation of the Lost Lake Run.
The run, a popular event for runners from Southeast, is a fundraiser to benefit those with Cystic Fibrosis. The race was scheduled for Aug. 22. The run is conducted on Forest Service land adjacent to the Bear Creek Fire Station.
The run has been known to fill up fast and uses a lottery system to award bibs for the race. The number of race participants is limited due to the need to protect the Forest Service Land.
According to an announcement from the race organizers, the Lost Lake Run Board of Directors met on June 5 and agreed to postpone the race until 2021. Registrations for the 2020 race will be held over for the 2021 race.
The board is considering a virtual event and is looking for ideas.
The webinar series that the organization has been conducting will continue. The organization is looking for guests for the webinars that can share their training philosophy, discuss specific aspects of training (e.g. cross training, diet, flexibility), or share their Cystic Fibrosis story.
