5K Safety Precautions

COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: The following additional safety precautions will be enacted to ensure the safety of participants and volunteers throughout the event:

  • Start and finish line will be in an area of the trail where there is a large field in which runners waiting for their start time can spread out without blocking the trail.
  • Care will be taken to limit interaction between each group of 50 people. Start times will be staggered in an effort to ensure that each group of 50 runners is finished and heading to the parking lot prior to the next group of 50 participants starting their race.  This will minimize exposure between groups of participants.
  • Various check-in stations will be available to limit congregating during check-in.
  • Participants will be required to wear face coverings prior to and following the race. Volunteers will wear face coverings the entire morning.
  • At the start line, each group of 50 runners will be lined up in a single file line, all 6 feet apart by estimated pace time, thereby eliminating any possibility of large groups of people running together throughout the race.  Runners will cross the start line one by one. Chip timing will ensure accurate time data.
  • Participants will be required to confirm no recent exposure to COVID-19, no symptoms associated with COVID-19 and sign a liability waiver form prior to participating, including a COVID-19 release of liability.
  • All race volunteers will be masked, sanitized and properly socially distanced.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the registration table, start and finish lines.
  • Each individual will be instructed to report to race start line 15 minutes prior their assigned race start time in order to complete the COVID-19 forms.
  • Participants will be encouraged to leave immediately following their finish.
  • Bottled drinks will be available at the finish line for each participant to grab and go.
  • Unless we are required otherwise, no restroom facilities will be available to participants.
