    Because of the COVID-19 crisis, the Tri Valley Glow Run has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. No virtual run is scheduled at this time.


The series will include both participation points and placing points. That means that a person need not be fast to qualify for year-end awards. Rather, they must be willing to train and participate in races throughout the season. But placing points are also encouraged for those trying to improve their times and age placement.
