The Vertical Slam Society still plans on holding its signature run this year, but it won't be on June 5, as originally scheduled. Instead, they will try a live event on September 11.
In a Facebook post, the organizers said they could have went with the virtual option in June, but following a meeting and a public poll, decided to wait a little longer in hopes of having an in-person event like normal.
The 2020 Vertical Slam was a virtual run, and raised $22,000 for School District 60's Hot Meals Program. If an in-person event isn't an option for September, the Society said a virtual option is still a go.
Vertical Slam has scheduled the Halloween Forest Fun run for October 30, at Fish Creek Community Forest.
