  1. Can I register race day morning? NO. Sorry, we will not have race day registration. The last possible time to register is July 3rd by the end of the day. You may pick up your packet race morning but all participants that pickup on July 2nd or 3rd will receive a free buff courtesy of Visit Lake County and Dash Sports
  2. How early should participants arrive before the race starts?  Every participant chose a time corral upon registration. This is the time you should be at the start line. Please arrive to the event no earlier than 20 minutes prior to your start corral time in order to park and walk to the start.  Do not arrive to your start corral prior to 10 minutes. Volunteers will be checking bibs to make sure you are in the right corral. Please help us by double checking your start time and hang out by your car until your time is near. 
  3. Can I pick up a packet for a friend? Yes, but ONLY if they have signed the online waiver as well as read the Covid 19 Guidelines posted on this rage page and signed the Declaration of Health. All participants must have this Declaration of Health signed in order to pick up their packets and this will be emailed to all registrants prior race day. This document can be signed online. 
  4. Will there be post race snacks? Of course, we love a good snack after running. We will have a great post race snack bagged and ready to go for you to enjoy on your way home. Sorry but we will not be having any post race festivities. You may claim your beer anytime after the race is completely over later that day or anytime until 8/31/2020
  5. Can people come watch & cheer? Ughhhh, we love a good loud crowd, but not this time. We cannot have anyone extra on the course, start or finish line other than those designated to those timed corrals, volunteer or staff. Please help us by letting your friends and family members know they can wait for you at home to celebrate your finish.  However if you are the parent or guardian of a minor, you will be allowed to wait at the finish line for him/her to finish.

Do not arrive too early and please head back to your car as soon as you finish the race and receive your finisher's medal and snack. We would love to continue to put on events for you and our community, and in order to do so we must have a well executed event under the new Covid race format.
