    COVID-19 Safety

Safety is our Priority

Understandably, safety is a big concern for many as they are deciding whether to participate in this year's events. And rest assured, the safety of the participants, staff, and volunteers is of utmost importance to us. Our main goal is to eliminate as many touch points as possible and limit exposure between people, which is why we are asking all participants, staff, and volunteers to adhere to CDC guidelines. Meaning a mask/face covering will be required at packet pick up and on site on race day. Masks/face coverings are not required while running. Additionally, we ask that they all be in good health and symptom free from any illness for at least 2 weeks prior to the event.

COVID Precautions

PACKET PICK-UP

A mask/face covering will be required at packet pick up and on site on race day. Masks/face coverings are not required while running. One of our main priorities in keeping everyone safe is to eliminate touch points from packet pick up to the end of the event. Therefore, after picking up their race packet and any pre-purchased merchandise, participants should exit the packet pick up area. Participants may register at packet pick up and day of the race, but are asked to do so from their own personal devices.

START CORRAL

Participants will start with 20 people in the start corral at a time, with the rest of participants remaining in the holding corral. There will be two rows of 10 participants spaced 6 feet apart marked by an X on the ground. We ask that you line up in the corral and follow direction from staff on when to proceed to the next marker. Groups will be released every 15 seconds. While waiting in both the holding and start corrals, we ask that participants adhere to social distancing requirements and wear a mask (disposable masks will be provided). Masks will not be required while running.

COURSE

In an effort to eliminate another touch point, we will have small water bottles at every aid station at a minimum with gels at aid station 5 and 6. Should it be deemed safe to have open water and Gatorade we will have cups of each available. Please plan your nutrition accordingly. Trash cans will be placed at each aid station and along the course for disposal of water bottles. Please properly dispose of your bottles and gels in the trash. We ask that you help us keep the course and community clean and please do not litter on the course. It is inevitable that runners will want to pass one another, and we ask that participants pass only when it is safe and clear of others. Please adhere to the "no drafting" rules which include being no closer than 10 feet behind or in front of, or 6 feet beside other competitors.

FINISH LINE

Congratulations, you finished the race! Upon completing the run and crossing the finish line, participants must continue moving towards the exit of the finish area. Please do not linger or gather in large groups. No congregating of any type will be permitted either before, during, or after the event.
