The goal of the event is to provide a truly fun running experience for the participants while adhering to all CDC social distancing and safety guidelines.
The event will have a time-trial type set up which will allow runners to start individually or in small groups of associated participants (family members or participants that cohabitate) during designated times between 7:30am - 8:15am. The course remains open until 9:15AM.
*You will have the opportunity to start on your own, or with a group of FIVE or less, anytime between 7:30 am and 8:15 am.
*Each participant's start time will be “Chip” recorded as they cross the starting line. The start line will be on the sidewalk that leads out of the park, towards Short Beach Rd.
*Each participant's finish time will be “Chip” recorded as they cross the finish line. The finish line will be on the driveway/lot close to the pavilion.
* As participants finish, they will receive a text message and/or email with their finishing time.
A list of overall finishing times for all competitors will be continually updated while the race is in progress. Shortly after 10 AM, the final race results should be posted.
*Participants are required to be completely self-sufficient. No water stop on the course! Carry your own fluids and DO NOT DROP them on the course!
*Participants must follow all CDC safe distancing guidelines.
*When approaching the starting line participants must immediately begin their run WHEN DIRECTED. Participants MUST approach the starting line ready to run.

*Except for passing, participants should always remain safe to the side of the road indicated by cones, signs, or volunteers.
*Participants passing one another on the course must adhere to “no drafting” rules KEEPING DISTANCE between other runners at any time.
*Participants may pass only when there are not any oncoming runners approaching from the opposite direction. Before passing, participants must be sure they can safely remain six feet behind and then six feet in front of the participant being overtaken before merging back to the road/pathway.
*Participants must follow all instructions of the course marshals and may only cross the street when instructed to do so by the police or course volunteers.
