Due to the current pandemic this year's race will be held completely outdoors.  It will be a "show up and run" event with no onsite registration.  Participants are asked to pick up their race packets in advance.  There will be no pre or post-race activities.  Addtionally, because of the current COVID 19 pandemic will be limiting this event to 500 participants.  We will be utilizing a rolling start.  This will allow runners to start individually or in small groups of associated participants (family member or participants that live together) during designated times.  When registering, participants will be asked to select a 10-minute starting time window between 9:00AM - 10:00AM.  Participants may begin their race anytime during the selected time window.  There is a limit of 100 starting positions available for each starting time window and they are available on a first come, first serve basis.  In order to maintain safe distancing and traffic control on the race course participants must start during their selected starting time slot.  If a particular starting time is not available it means it has reached the maximum number of participants for that time slot.  Please do not ask us to make any exceptions, because we will not.  The race course will remain open until 11:00AM.  

Should the condtions of the current health crisis improve and the restrictions on group gatherings be removed we will revert back to a more traditional race start set up and everyone will start at 9:00AM.
