Club Runs


The following guidelines are current as of July 28. 2021for participants. Distinctions are made for unvaccinated and vaccinated participants in the guidelines where applicable (e.g. outdoors there is no need for a vaccinated participant to wear a mask, but we ask unvaccinated participants to do so at beginning and end of runs). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these guidelines are subject to change as guidelines are updated by the CDC.

  • Participants should be Bluegrass Runners members. We are unable to provide electronic waivers at this time for non-members, and it is recommended we have a waiver for non-members by RRCA.
  • Unvaccinated participants should bring and wear face coverings for run starts (these may be removed when the run begins).
  • There will be no maximum group size due to there being no limit on outdoor gathering sizes in Kentucky at this time.
  • Unvaccinated participants should spread out and maintain a 6’ distance (side to side and front to back) from each other during group runs if safe to do so (e.g. traffic may necessitate being briefly closer than 6’).
  • Unvaccinated participants should avoid running directly behind another runner if safe to do so (e.g. traffic may necessitate being briefly behind another runner).
  • Participants should be fully clear of the running path before spitting or blowing their nose (see also guidelines below regarding symptoms).
  • All groups will start and finish outside.
  • Larger groups (more than 10) should plan to spread out by expected pace with similar paced runners grouping together to eliminate the need to pass each other on the run.
  • Per CDC guidelines, no participant should take part in a group run if they are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.
  • Additionally, no one should participate in a group run if any of the following apply: Asked to quarantine by the health department; non-vaccinated AND exposed within the last 14 days to someone who is Covid positive; Waiting on Covid 19 test results
  • To eliminate common touch points, the Club may suspend mid-run and post-run beverages for all group runs until further notice. Personal hydration and fuel are the recommended options. If the Club provides hydration or food, please use hand sanitizer prior to touching common surfaces such as container handles, etc.

Running together is a great way to meet other runners while getting your miles in. We have plenty of club members out and about every week. Even if you’re not a club member, you’re welcome to join those BGRs when they are running. We run at a variety of paces, and walkers are welcome. You can also find a running buddy and stay up to date on run time/location changes by joining our Facebook group.
