  • We will have an area marked with cones, staggered six feet apart. Participants will stand, physically distanced in the parking lot and waiting to enter the start area.
  • Participants are encouraged to maintain a distance of six feet from other participants and to run/walk single file as far right as possible, allowing enough room for others to pass if needed. Thus, running/walking side by side or in groups is highly discouraged.

  • Please do not congregate after the race. Participants are encouraged to gather their belongings and leave immediately after the race.
  • There will be no post race awards ceremony.
