UPDATE on HMF’s Sam Adams Challenge Series for 2020

We appreciate your patience as we continue to assess every detail of the 2020 race calendar and make adjustments to address public health requirements. As we look forward with optimism about gradual easing of restrictions, there are still many unknown variables that significantly impact the ability to safely produce race experiences without extensive modifications.

The constantly evolving event scenarios and changes have impacted HMF’s Sam Adams Challenge Series. We developed these various challenges to motivate and reward participants with extra swag or incentives for completing multiple events. To provide that additional swag at no charge requires a formula of race registration fees that will cover those additional costs. Fee structures of virtual events and new event experiences are based on a very different formula, one that supports charity and maintaining our non-profit organization’s operations and staff needed to keep moving ahead.

At this time, there are just too many variables to move forward on the Challenges in 2020. Of course, any event registration for a cancelled or postponed event will not be lost, everyone will get 100% of their registration fees in deferment credit for the future (details sent by email by event).

We will continue to offer new challenges and virtual programs to keep you motivated and moving, please check back often.
