COVID-19 Race Guidelines
You should plan to arrive at the race site approximately 30 minutes prior to the start time assigned to you. If you arrive early, please wait in your car until the half-hour window prior to your race.

You must wear a face mask from the time you arrive until you are in position
at the starting area.

During your 30-minute arrival window, proceed to the screening/check-in area.
At the check-in area, you will answer COVID-19 screening questions, have your temperature checked, sign a race waiver, and receive your race packet.

You may remove your mask when you are at the Starting Line just before the start of your wave.

After you have crossed the finish line, please put your mask back on, grab a bottled water and pre-packaged snack, then head home to watch the LIVE results online.
