Uncorked COVID-19 Changes
As RVA’s nonprofit advocate for active living opportunities for all residents, Sports Backers has grappled with the current realities of our world while continuing to provide ways for our community to remain active and motivated. We pride ourselves in producing events like the Uncorked Half & 5k that are a fun way to reward the emotions and significant accomplishments of our participants. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer the in-person event option this year.
We’ve identified the following options for you to continue your event experience:
1. Participate virtually in the 2020 Uncorked Half and 5k
You’re in! If you plan to take advantage of this option, you do not need to take any action. You have been automatically transferred to the virtual version of the race distance that you registered for. You will still receive all of your race swag (including your race shirt if you added it on to your 5k registration) around the end of June. No need to send us proof of your virtual run, you can do it at any time that you choose.
Plus, we still want you to be able to enjoy your finisher glass of wine! Head to New Kent Winery any time before December 31, 2020, to redeem your complimentary finisher glass of wine. Take your finisher wine glass and medal, snap a pic, and tag us!
2. Defer your registration to the 2021 Uncorked Half & 5k
If you would like to wait until next year to participate in the Uncorked Half & 5k, you can defer your registration to the 2021 event, which will be held on Saturday, May 1. All deferral fees will be waived and any add-ons to your registration such as a Sip and Savor package, a 5k race shirt, or any drink tickets will defer with your registration to next year’s event.
The deadline to take advantage of this deferral option is Friday, April 24, 2020. If you have not deferred your entry by that time, you will be considered part of the virtual event.

3. Credit your Uncorked Half & 5k registration fee to another Sports Backers event
You have the option to credit the cost of your Uncorked Half & 5k entry fee to another Sports Backers (including the Patrick Henry Half Marathon or Richmond Half Marathon) event that takes place through May 1, 2021. The deadline to take advantage of this option is April 24, 2020 and you may request to do so by completing this form.
Sports Backers thanks you for your continued support. On behalf of our staff, Board of Directions, sponsors, and volunteers, we’re rooting for you! #LetsGoRVA
