  • Warm Up laps will be divided into smaller groups.

  • Anyone who is sick, or has traveled to a high risk area, or has been exposed to COVID-19 within the previous 14 days should stay home. Refunds will be given for races missed due to such circumstances, upon request.

  • Water stations will have single use cups.  

  • We will also consider implementing other protocols which are reasonable and will increase the safety of our participants.
