MARQUETTE –Due to the COVID–19 pandemic, Superior Arts Youth Theaters Superheroes on the Run Race is being held virtually.

This is the fourth annual Superheroes on the Run Race fundraiser. It started June 1st, and will go through July 10th. Registration is $25 dollars, and all proceeds from this event will go towards the Superior Arts Youth Theater.

“We really need the support of the community,” said Jalina McClain, Executive Director of the Superior Arts Youth Theater. “This is such a huge fundraiser for us that we couldn’t not do it anymore. We couldn’t just say ‘Well we’re just not doing it, it’s canceled completely.’ It’s really important to stay positive right now, especially for the kids in our community. Like, I know there’s so much going on and to be the positive light in the world and to really show them that, they can make a difference and that there’s things to look forward to.”

Participants have until June 23rd to sign up online and receive a race shirt by July 4th. The distances available to sign up for are the 1 mile, 5k, and 10k.

McClain said participants can still sign up after the 23rd of June, but possibly won’t receive the t–shirt until after the first week of July.
