Schedule of Events

We are excited to announce that the 2020 Cornfield Cornfield has a new date and is now scheduled for Sunday, August 30th. We’ve adjusted the course, implemented a wave format and are incorporating social distancing best practices into race day. While the race will look different, we are excited to get back to in-person racing with you! In addition to a postponed in-person event, we will also provide a virtual run for anyone who is unable or chooses not to run in-person. Learn more here.

Wave Start

For 2020, we will be implementing a wave start. Each runner will be assigned a wave in their pre-race email and can also be found via bib-lookup. Runners may not move up a wave under any circumstance, however, a runner may move back a wave if they would like to run with another participant. Be sure to log-in to your registration account to provide us with your “average pace per mile” to aid in wave assignments by the July 31st deadline.


Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of your wave. Add an additional 15 minutes if you still need to pickup your packet.
