GET VACCINATED! This is a no brainer but we also realize that not everyone will be on the "same page."  We're not here to judge but only to make recommendations based upon what we have learned from the CDC.  The CDC reports that outdoor events are venues least likely to spread the Coronavirus. Regardless, whether you are vaccinated or not we ask you to wear your face mask when at packet pick-up and in the staging area for the start of the race.  

​Sanitizer:   Hand sanitizer will be located throughout the designated race "staging area".

​Wave starts:  We will have "Wave Starts" according to your estimated finish time. It also helps with social distancing since each "wave" will consist of fewer people.

​Water station: We're still working on this but we will probably have uncapped bottle water at the "turn-around" water station. Runners and walkers who choose to grab a bottle are asked to dispose of the bottle located near the fluid station OR continue to hold onto the bottle for disposal at the finish line.
