It’s time to party, because the inaugural Margarita Half & 5K (formerly the Portsmouth Half & 5K) is coming to Portsmouth, NH on May 3, 2020! Choose from the half marathon or 5K, then get ready to celebrate your accomplishments in style! After the run all participants will be treated to a complimentary margarita or Dos Equis beer, delicious burritos, and some stylish swag!
As you probably already know, the governor of New Hampshire recently outlined a plan for re-opening the state in phases, with bans on large gatherings expected to remain in place until Phase 4.
We thank the state for taking prudent measures to protect the public, but it is now clear that races, festivals, and other large gatherings won’t be allowed for the foreseeable future. So what now?
We can’t simply cancel the race and refund everyone because we’ve already spent most of the money on everything we needed to produce the race, from medals and swag to permits and planning. What little that remains is being used to keep the lights on for as long as we can.
But we still want you to get out and run, and we want you to get all of your swag, so we’re putting our remaining resources and efforts into converting the 2020 Margarita Half & 5K to a virtual run.
A virtual run allows you to run whenever and wherever you want, be it a scenic run along an ocean boulevard, a challenging trek along mountain trails, or a safe and secure run on a living room treadmill. Everyone runs either a half or 5K, but you get to create your own ideal route wherever you live, choose a day with perfect weather to run it, and then submit your finish time online!
We’ll ship all of your swag items – premium quarter-zip, finisher’s medal (half), and bib – direct to your door beginning in early June to the address on file in your EnMotive account, which you can check and, if necessary, update here* by May 31st. Please make sure you’ve selected the right size by checking out the sizing guide here, then update your selection in your EnMotive account if necessary. If your package is returned back to our office because of an incorrect address, we won’t be able to reship it.
You don’t need to do anything further except get out there and run! Once you’ve completed your run, click here to log in to your EnMotive account. From there, find the event on the “Upcoming Races” page, click Log Result, enter your time, and download your official finisher’s certificate!
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed but we’ll reply as soon as possible.
On behalf of the Loco Races team, we thank you for your understanding and support!
