May 27, 2020 UPDATE:
We have been informed by Salem College that they will not be allowing our event for the 2020 season due to precautions they are taking regarding COVID-19. They are fully committed to the event and are anxious to have us return in 2021. Although we are saddened by this decision, we fully understand their rationale and support them as they strive to do what is best for their students and community.
THEREFORE, WE HAVE LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO CANCEL THE 2020 RAMBLIN’ ROSE WINSTON-SALEM EVENT FOR 2020 AND RETURN TO NORMAL IN 2021.
All registered athletes have been sent an email on how to manage your entry to defer into 2021 or transfer into any other 2020 Ramblin’ Rose Event.
We absolutely hate this situation and hope that you understand how difficult it is for us to have to cancel the 2020 event.
