The Half Marathon will have a time limit of 3hrs. If you require more than 3hrs to complete the course, we kindly ask that after 3hrs has elapsed, that continue your run safely on the shoulder of the road.
The safety and health of all participants is paramount, and as such, all registrants and their associates will be required to follow CDC guidelines for the event. A social distancing start line procedure will be forthcoming in the final weeks, which will be tailored according to the number of participants and the need to put their safety first.
START LINE PROCEDURE:Prior to each race, all runners will have their temperature checked and must have signed the Covid-19 packet pickup waiver. All runners must line up in pairs, six feet apart and six feet behind the next pair. We will utilize a rolling start in 5 second waves. Due to current entry numbers, we estimate 3min maximum for the first and last runner to begin their race once the gun goes off. All runners will receive an official chip time and be scored accordingly. For those who usually finish in the top 1/3 of races, please plan on being towards the front of the start as to not trample slower runners once races have begun. We ask that all runners please use their best judgement with their running ability, allowing faster runners to start first with walkers going last. Masks or Face Coverings Required at start and finish and while in the staging area.
