Longest Causeway Run & Fitness Walk postponed

The Sixth annual 2020 Summer Longest Causeway Run & Fitness Walk scheduled for June 6 has been postponed because of COVID-19.

The new date for the run-walk is scheduled for Aug. 22.

The postponement announcement has been sent to runners and walkers who have participated in the event in past years.

Part of the announcement reads, “Storms don’t last forever. Remember why you’re running our Summer Run in the first place. Whether it’s self-satisfaction, a sense of achievement, or pure love of our coastal area, stay motivated and keep training. Together, we will weather through it.”

The annual event draws more than 1,000 walkers and runners not only from across the Rio Grande Valley, but the state and nation as well.

More details on the event will be released when they are worked out between the communities and partners.
