Of the 7 races in the Mercer Health 5k Challenge series, all live races have been canceled EXCEPT The Buzzards Glory 5k. Don’t worry though, we’re going to do this thing together-apart with a VIRTUAL 5k CHALLENGE for 6 weeks, with an option to finish together-together at the Buzzards Glory 5k on August 1!
