Runner Safety Protocols
We will have reduced access to the Freedom Aquatic and Fitness Center (FAFC) facilities. The restrooms will be available. We ask that runners do not gather in the FAFC. Prior to the race and after the race, runners are asked to remain outside. 
We will offer 1 water station at the 1.5 mile mark of the race. Small unopened water bottles will be available on a table for runners. In addition, small water bottles will be available at the end of the race. 
We will not be serving food at the end of the race. 
The race start will have “wave starts” with departure times based on your expected pace. 
We will adhere to all Virginia Department of health guidelines for running races and abide by RRCA’s best practices for conducting safe running events.
