Rumpshaker 5K In-Person Event:
This year the Rumpshaker 5K will look different with a limit of 500 participants for our in-person event. We are excited to host an in-person event as we will have COVID-19 precautions in place for participants, volunteers, and spectators alike. Registration will open at 6:00 pm on Thursday, November 26, and will remain open until capacity has been reached. Early registration ends on January 9, 2021, and the price will increase to $40. The race will have a slightly different look for 2021, All In-Person 5K race participants will be chip timed and will start in small “waves” based on the runner's estimated finish time. This year there will be no team discount for the in-person only event due to the limited number of participants. The $5 team discount is still available for the Virtual 5K and both the 100 and 200 Mile Challenges (teams of 5 participants or more). We encourage you to take advantage of one of the new categories if you or your team members are not comfortable with the in-person event.

We will make every effort to conduct this race in accordance with CDC, state, and local guidelines. CDC Guidelines on how to protect yourself: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html. We will rely on each runner to conduct themselves with best practices during the global pandemic, including practical physical distancing, avoiding handshakes and high-fives, and wearing facemasks, etc.
Racers will not be expected to wear masks during the race, but need to wear masks prior to and after they complete their event.
Our volunteers will wear facemasks and those working food area and water stations will also wear gloves.
Additionally, volunteers will be wearing masks at registration, and any time we expect brief interactions closer than 6 feet apart.
Racers will line up the starting line 6 feet approximately apart in waves based on expected finish times.
The race will be chip-timed and will start in small waves.
Please consider bringing your own water (BYOW) this year. Each Water station will have hand sanitizer. Water will be poured into cups by masked and gloved volunteers for the participants to pick up off the table.
Everyone has been through a lot this year with the pandemic. We believe it is time to get outdoors and be together… but we also believe that we must do it safely. We are expecting everyone to abide by best practices with us. We know that there are lots of differing views but if you are joining us for this race, please graciously respect the safety and views of everyone around you, and let’s have a great race.
If there are more updates, we will update you at registration and via email.
