In light of ongoing social distancing concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with deep regret that the 2020 Rock ’n’ Run the Runway event has been cancelled.
On May 5, Governor Pritzker announced the Restore Illinois plan, which outlines how and when various businesses, events, and gatherings can resume. Metrics such as rate of positive tests and availability of hospital beds are used to usher various regions in Illinois through the reopening phases. Fests like Rock ’n’ Run the Runway are not able to be resumed until there is widespread availability of a COVID-19 vaccine or treatment. Though it’s hard to predict where the situation will be in the next few months, out of an abundance of caution, Village officials have chosen to take the proactive step to cancel this event.
Canceling events is never an easy decision, especially beloved annual community gatherings such as this. Staff and Village officials are hopeful that a vaccine or treatment will become available in time for Rock ’n’ Run the Runway to resume in 2021.
