Meet In The Middle 2020 - CANCELLED

Unfortunately we were forced to cancel due to the COVID-19 threat.

The Column Bears and Meet In The Middle 2020 Committee regret to announce that Meet In The Middle (MITM) 2020 is being cancelled. On Monday, March 16, 2020 the City of Columbia put into effect an indefinite ban on any activities with 50 or more participants in light of the growing COVID-19 threat. With the safety of our attendees and community in mind, as our event will definitely be over this threshold, we have no choice but to comply.

We hope to schedule further events in 2020 once our health and community safety once again normalize and will communicate and promote those activities at that time. We do not take this cancellation lightly and ask for your understanding and cooperation.

The Column Bears have coordinated with the host hotel (Holiday Inn Columbia – East) to automatically cancel any reservations made in our room block on 3/18/2020. If you had purchased your Run Pass, you are being refunded in full.

If you would like to donate to the Column Bears, please watch our Facebook Page, Facebook Group, and website for details on how to do this.

We appreciate your understanding and can’t wait to see you at our other events in the future! The Column Bears wish you the best during this difficult time and beyond, stay safe.
