A first for the Jackass Half Marathon and 5K | Silver Valley News
The Jackass Half Marathon and 5K is still set to kick off even with the COVID-19 situation.
In a press release, the Silver Valley Chamber said, "At this time, we are pushing forward with plans for this exciting inaugural event. With the Jackass Half Marathon more than five months away, we are hopeful. But please know that we are monitoring global and local recommendations and will make decisions that are safest for everyone. In the event of cancellation, we fully plan to postpone this event until 2021 and refund registration fees".
The race will start in Wallace and end in Uptown Kellogg. The course is mostly downhill and will be the perfect route for beginner runners.
Each participant for both races will receive a Jackass Half Marathon shirt, a handmade finisher medal, and a free beer or soft drink token from Radio Brewing.
The half marathon will start at 9:30 am and the 5k will start at 10:00 am.
