This year our race will follow a number of COVID-19 safety precautions including, but not limited to, the following:

- Waves limited to a maximum of 150 runners every 20 minutes
- Shufflers may arrive no earlier than 30 minutes prior to their start time and report to the starting line no more than 10 minutes prior to their start time
- For safety and to ensure sufficient parking for all waves, shufflers will leave venue after completing race and minimal cool down
- No onsite finish line celebration or awards ceremony. Winners to be announced virtually along with award pick-up details

- Due to circumstances of the pandemic, we encourage shufflers to reconsider bringing pets to the race this year to allow more distancing on the course. If you do bring your fixed length leash pet to race with you, please be mindful of social distancing. No retractable leashes are permitted due to tripping hazard
- If staff, volunteers, vendors, sponsors, or participants become ill during the event, they must report to the onsite medical team and move to isolation if necessary
