COVID-19 and Race Update

Updated  March 25, 2020

The ERS, along with the rest of the world, have been carefully monitoring the coronavirus situation and how it affects the sports world, more specifically to us and to you the trail runner, for the first few events of our Summer Series in Colorado.


We understand the continued need to support the running community in providing them an outlet to keep them engaged and active. So we have decided to open up all of our race registration, including our 2020 Season Pass to a virtual option. More information can be found on our website, in regards to these options.

For all the registered for Westminster Trail Race…


As of March 17th, the city of Westminster, has decided to freeze all upcoming event permits for the foreseeable future. Meaning they will not be offering any new event dates until they can put a plan into place to accommodate those events that would like to reschedule.


Based on this given information and the uncertainty of when Westminster would allow 2020 events (if ever), the Endurance Race Series has officially decided to cancel the 2020 Westminster Half, 10k, and 5K.


What does this mean for the runners already registered? After careful deliberation we have decided to give the runners 3 options to choose from…


  1. Virtual Race Option

  2. Race Transfer into one of our other remaining Summer events.

  3. Race deferment to the 2021 Westminster race


An explanation of the 3 options is listed below.



  • If a runner wants to do a virtual race option, they will need to reach out to Jeff Stoner at by April 3rd, to get your name on the virtual race registration list. This allows us to make sure we have the shirt size and medal counts correct.

  • The ERS will be offering a packet pickup option on both April 24th and 25th. Additional Details TBD, and announced early April.

  • Runners will be able to pick up race bib, shirt and medal, at this time

  • Run on your own schedule, whenever and wherever.

  • Tag the ERS on Social Media @ersevents

  • Runners that are not local to Colorado, will have the opportunity to run virtually, and the ERS will send your gear to you. This applies to out of state runners only who choose this option.


If there is enough interest in a virtual race option, the ERS may make this option available to those not signed up currently. Registration details and costs, if necessary, will be determined within the next 7-10 days.



  • Runners will have the option to transfer into one of our other Colorado Summer events. Starting with the June 20th Mountain Ridge event.

  • Runners that would like to transfer into another race will need to contact Jeff Stoner at and request a race transfer form

  • Runners will have until April 3rd to request a transfer.

  • Anyone who does not respond to a transfer or virtual run request, will automatically be deferred into the 2021 Westminster race.



  • All runners will automatically be deferred to the 2021 Westminster race, unless otherwise requesting one of the other two options.

  • If we have not heard from you by April 3rd, we will again automatically move you to the 2021 race date

  • No transfer form is needed in the 2021 deferment process


Please note, due to the circumstances of the cancellation we will not be offering refunds to this event and are willing to answer your questions in regards to this matter.  We know this situation is not ideal for anyone, and hope that by offering these 3 options it will appeal to most if not all runners.  We thank you for your understanding and your continued support during this time. As things progress, we will continue to offer updates on other events, namely the Barr Lake race on May 31st. At this we are planning to host this event at its regularly scheduled time and location.


Thank you again everyone, please stay safe.
