CLUB RUN STATEMENT DURING COVID 19 PANDEMIC:

The board of Bluegrass Runners is continuing to monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19 as well as guidance from the city and state. Both Lexington and Kentucky have begun reopening processes with many of the same overall goals and protections in place, though there are policy variations that would affect even small recreational outdoor gatherings (e.g., 10 people or less).

All sanctioned Bluegrass Runners activities remain suspended or virtual at this time, but we are  making plans that will accommodate limited group activities when permitted by and in accordance with local guidelines and regulations. Those plans include the following points, which are all subject to change.

  • When group runs restart, we will address group size requirements and require minimum social distance between participants per guidelines for fitness centers in Kentucky, which currently recommends 10 feet rather than 6 feet for those engaging in fitness activities.
  • Participants should avoid running directly behind other participants for a minimum distance of 20'.
  • 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.
  • Participants should bring and wear face coverings for run starts (these may be removed when the run begins).  
    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,
  • To eliminate common touch points, the Club will suspend mid-run and post-run beverages for all group runs until further notice. Personal hydration and fuel are the recommended options.

At this time we are not holding sanctioned group runs until at least TBD at October BGR Board meeting. We strongly recommend those who choose to participate in non-sanctioned group runs follow the above guidelines, and that group sizes be limited to 10 or less. Please remain mindful of individual risk tolerances and respect that the willingness to participate in even small group activities is personal. The safety of our members remains our top concern. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any comments, concerns, or questions.

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.
