Luc's Run Goes All-Virtual in 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the rapidly expanding efforts to control the virus, the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation has decided to adapt the 2020 race to an all-virtual run in order to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, and spectators.  

What does it mean to run virtually? A virtual race is a race that can be run from the location of your choice.  Whether it's the road, treadmill, beach, trail, or track - you can honor Luc's legacy and raise funds for scholarships anywhere you choose!

We understand that these are unprecedented times with disappointing changes, but we hope by offering a virtual option and racing together wherever we are around the world, we can still band together in unity to get out and live like Luc. 

Description

Luc’s Run presented by Black Oak Casino Resort and Alternative Energy is held annually each spring in historic Tuolumne, California and Virtually Anywhere in the World. Luc's Run is known as one of the premier races in the county.  A 10K, 2-mile, and Kids Run (ages 10 & under) are offered.  In addition to the local race, the option for a virtual run is available.  Hundreds of enthusiasts from around the world walk and run in support of Luc’s legacy!

On January 28, 2013, Luc, a United States Air Force pilot was on a training mission over the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Italy. During the sortie, Luc was forced to eject from his F-16 and did not survive the ejection.  Luc is survived by family and friends who continue his Legacy through the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation.

Major Lucas Gruenther was an incredible human being.  He was an outstanding F-16 fighter pilot, community role model, and a true humanitarian.  He lived his life to the fullest and never took a single day for granted.  Luc is remembered for the way he treated people with wisdom and kindness and was a genuine human being who made a tremendous positive impact.

All proceeds from this race go to the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation, an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  The purpose of the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation is to bestow scholarships to Americans for the advancement of educational goals and self development.
