2020 EJ Herrmann Invitational and COVID-19
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding what to expect this fall, the EJ Herrmann Race Committee made the difficult decision a few months ago to cancel the 2020 EJ Herrmann Invitational. This decision was made taking into consideration the health and safety of our student athletes, volunteers, and spectators. We hope to see you on Saturday, September 25, 2021 for the return of the EJ Herrmann!
