Big Changes For This Year's Bix7
The spirit of the Quad City Times
will never change but the way people participate this year will. The 46th Annual Bix7 has gone virtual due to the COVID pandemic.
Michelle Juehring, Race Director of the Quad City Times Bix7, came on the show to discuss how difficult it was to make the decision but emphasized it was really the only way to hold the event when the primary consideration needs to be safety of the runners and volunteers.
Juehring said the community reaction has been mostly positive.
Participants will have an opportunity to take part in the Bix 7, the Prairie Farms Quick Bix and the Arconic Jr. Bix in a virtual format by completing their race distance at any time between July 1st through 25th (the original scheduled date for this year’s race).
Runners and walkers can participate from any location they prefer outdoors or even indoors on a track or treadmill.
• Registrations for the virtual race are being accepted
• Once registered online, a commemorative t-shirt will
be sent to each runner.
After a participant's race distance is completed, registered runners can upload their finish time which will allow them to compare their performance with others in the same age group.
