Join us for another year of the Discrete Cirque Series at Alta. 7.1 miles featuring 2,545' vert.
*COVID: As we continue to watch the COVID situation evolve, for safety measures, we are supplying masks (neckgaiters) for every runner, medic, volunteer. Starting at registration, all our employees will have a neckgaiter on, each participant will receive a neckgaiter in their bib-pick-up materials. All runners will be required to wear neckgaiter at all times during the event, with the exception of after the first 1/4 mile of the race, you can remove your mask for the entirety of the race, until you cross the finish line, then we will require you to put neckgaiter back on. We plan on mass start, but we are open to a 20 minute 'rolling start' to thin out the start crowd, TBD. All sponsors & spectators will be required to be in a mask, my staff will have adequate supplies of masks to issue one to anyone we see not wearing one. Anyone affiliated with our races will have a mask on. Sponsors of the event will be required to follow strict sanitary measures for their tent, each tent will have hand sanitizer as well. Our staff that handles setting up registration & bib pick up materials will follow strict sanitary measures, same as race day handling of awards & prizes.
*For safety purposes, competitors will receive aid station nutrition in registration bags, we will provide Honey Stinger gels & Gnarly Hydrate for all participants. We will require all competitors to bring your own water bottles, we will not provide community water jugs, aid station fuel, or finish line hydration. Please note we'll still place emergency water jugs stationed on the course in Aid Stations & finish line in case of emergency. Please bring enough water for pre-race, during race, & post-race.
*We will ask any runner or spectator to avoid entering the race venue if they have a cough or fever. The reality that older adults & those with chronic medical conditions may be at higher risk for serious illness - if you are an older adult, we ask you to take this into serious consideration prior to potentially registering for a race.
*All Cirque Series staff have will be asked not to come to work if they feel sick (including any of the following: headache, sore throat, fever, dry cough, recent inability to taste and smell, shortness of breath, ear aches, body aches, diarrhea, fatigue, vomiting, & abdominal pain).
