- Runners and volunteers should prescreen on race morning. * see prescreen notes below
- Spectators are discouraged. If you need to have someone with you, they can watch the race by standing in the grass median on Ward Parkway for a good spot. No spectators will be allowed at the start line or finish line area.
- Runners should maintain a 6 foot distance from others at all times.
- Runners should wear a mask in the race staging area, at the start line and finish line. Masks can be removed when you start running.
- Runners will be sent out in waves and will line up according to pace. Look for the pace flags along the race start line.
- Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be available at packet pickup, portable toilets, aid stations, finish line and all areas where there will be touch points.
- Runners are encouraged to carry their own hydration to reduce the number of people at aid stations
- The water stop will be minimally staffed. Volunteers will fill cups and space them so runners can pick up their own cups without contaminating other cups.
- The finish line will have bottled water that you can pick up yourself.
- Runners should put their mask back on as soon as they cross the finish line.
- The finish line festival will be smaller than usual this year. We wish we could do more to celebrate your accomplishment.
