COVID Precautions – We will be following all state and local COVID-19 precautions. Which means the race will be at your leisure from 8 am – 12 pm. Due to this open time frame it will allow the race to be run in waves and runners/walkers will be recommended to wear a mask at all time while on the premises, but can lower the mask upon the start of the race. There will be hand sanitizing stations on site. This will all be dependent on the COVID-19 dial on race day!
