COVID Mitigation

To protect the safety of our volunteers and participants, the following protocols will be in place at this event:

  • Attendance by Pre-registration only. No day of event registration.

  • Prepayment recommended. This will enable minimal-contact pick-up of materials.

  • Distributed posters with detailed race information instead of a large gathering for announcements.

  • A "Mask Required" zone will be instituted around the registration area to insure that those approaching volunteers are masked. Participants outside of the "mask required" zone should practice standard social distancing from those not in their party.

  • Maintain social distancing while waiting for your start

  • "Catch your breath" zone after the finish prior to approaching the download station

  • Bring your own water and snacks. No water will be placed on the course. 

  • Socially distanced awards ceremony - you are encouraged to wear masks for the awards since groups may be in close proximity to each other

  • Online pre-event beginner clinic information. While you are welcome to ask questions at the event, we will not gather people together for beginner instruction.

  • Please do not attend if you are sick. Refunds will be made if you prepay and cannot attend.


Liability Waiver - Everyone must have a waiver on file. The registration system gives you an opportunity to accept the waiver for yourself or your family members. Minors whose registration is not handled by a parent/guardian must print out the form and bring it with them with a parent/guardian signature.
