***REGISTER FOR THE LIVE RACE WITHOUT RISK***

You can register for our LIVE race with the security of knowing that there are generous, flexible options in the event we are forced to cancel the LIVE race due to the COVID-19 crisis.
York County, Pennsylvania, where our LIVE race is located, is “green” per the Governor’s Process to Reopen, and this allows us to host a running event with up to 250 people. With COVID-19, it’s impossible to correctly predict the future. If our LIVE race should need to be canceled, and we certainly hope that won’t happen, you may choose from the following: 1) transfer to the VIRTUAL event, 2) donate your registration fee to our charity, or 3) defer your registration to 2021 or 2022.

If we were forced to cancel the event, and you had ordered a shirt, there would be three days of packet pickup for your convenience, September 24, 25, 26.***

***THE POLICY APPLIES ONLY TO THE LIVE EVENT***

This year’s *LIVE race will be limited to 250 runners* per Pennsylvania state guidelines due to COVID-19. Your best chance of getting in is to register early.

This year’s race includes both a LIVE and a VIRTUAL race. Runners around the world have embraced VIRTUAL racing in 2020, and we wanted to add this option to our 2020 edition! You can register for the LIVE, or the VIRTUAL, or register for each of the events (**you must register separately for each event if you wish to do both**).

Scoring method:
1) Only complete teams are scored. Complete teams must have 5 or more finishers.
2) Runners are placed within their teams by their finish time, fastest to slowest.

4) A team’s total points is the point sum of the first 5 qualified runners on a complete team.
5) Positions 1-5 within a team are called scorers. Positions 6 and 7 within a team are called displacers.
