Dear Reno community,

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy! 2020 has undoubtedly turned into a year of extreme uncertainty. Because of this uncertainty, we believe it is in the best interest of our organization and community to postpone the Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run until 2021. The new date will be Saturday, May 8, 2021.. As you may or may not know, this run is organized solely by volunteers and 100% of the proceeds are donated to Polio Plus Fund (Rotary International’s program to eradicate polio), RCS Rotary Foundation and Immunize Nevada.

We appreciate your patience while we work through this situation. If you have already registered, we have a few options for you:

  1. Hold your current registration for the future date
  2. Donate your paid registration fee (funds will go directly to entities mentioned above)
  3. Request a full refund

If you have any questions, please reach out via the Contact Us page. Thank you for your continued support of this great community!

Yours in Service,

Courtney Pino, Race Director
