Run Safety and Health Considerations.

  • The race will have a wave start.
  • Runners will be asked to estimate their finish times at registration.
  • There will be six waves of approximately 15 people per wave. Each wave will be formed in the startline control area (runners will be separated by at least 2 meters in the control area) , with the first wave at the south end of the control area. Each wave of 15 runners will be formed and separated by ribbon/rope from the next wave group.
  • The waves will be designated by estimated finish time as follows (for planning purposes until we have actual estimated times from participants): 1st wave – under 20 minutes; 2nd wave 20-23:59 min; 3rd wave – 24 – 27:59 min; 4th wave – 28 – 31:59 min; 5th wave – 32 – 35:59 min; 6th wave – 36 min and over.
  • Wave placements will be assigned by Race Director and runners will be assigned a wave at the sign-in desk upon arrival at run site. Runners must run in the wave assigned.
  • Approximately 10 minutes before the start time, waves will be marshalled to their startline positions (spots on the path that are at least 2 meters apart). Each wave of 15 runners will be separated by a rope or ribbon at the startline, to ensure that only one wave of runners crosses the startline at one time, and so that separation between runners is maintained.
  • Runners must remain on a startline spot at all times until their wave is released.
  • Each wave of 15 runners will be released at 1 minute intervals.
  • All runners will wear a mask before the start time and after they have finished the race. All runners must also maintain a distance of 2 meters between each other during all stages of the event.
  • Volunteers will be located at strategic locations along the route and at Start/Finish areas for safety, Covid 19 control, motivation and directional assistance to runners
  • Spectators are not allowed at the start and finish area.
  • Runners must maintain social distancing during race, after they have gone through the finish line, and until they have departed the event finish line control area..
  • Runners must give way to pedestrian traffic on the pathways.
  • Runners must not spit or hack at anytime.
  • If a runner exhibits any Covid 19 symptoms the morning of the race, they are to stay at home and not attend the race.
