Social Distancing Guidelines

In an effort to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 Virus while complying with local and state requirements and CDC recommendations, Blue Penguin Productions events that are permitted to take place will be enforcing the following guidelines and practices until further notice.  We feel fortunate to be able to host races again, but we must all be responsible and do our part to ensure a healthy running and post-race environment. Please read and comply! Thank You!

Covid – 19 Requirements:

-Please wear a mask pre- and post-race at all times while walking around the race venue. You do not need to wear a mask during the race or while sitting at your post-race location. Please respect people’s space and maintain a distance of 6 feet or more to those you do not know.  

-If you have an elevated temperature or flu like symptoms… STAY HOME. 

-Participant numbers will be reduced to meet the capacity limits for gatherings at each specific venue. (these numbers are subject to change)

-Immediate family members (i.e. spouse, child, significant other) may accompany a runner as a guest, but large gatherings of non-registered runners are not permitted due to space limitations. 

-Face masks must be worn on the Vineyard property at all times unless running/walking in the race, sitting at your designated space, or in your car. 

-Unless tables are assigned by staffing, Guest Tables may not be used in any capacity prior to the race. Please stay in the designated seating area for Grape Gallop participants. These tables are to be used after race only. 1st come 1st serve. Once a table is selected, it is your table for the remainder of the event.

Checking In/pre-race:

-If you are checking in for more than one person – only 1 person should check-in for the couple/group.

-After checking in, we recommend staying in your car until approx. 10 minutes prior to race start. 

-There will be NO Bag Check. Please leave belongings in your car or carry in your pocket during the race. 

-Grape Gallop will provide you with a ‘disposable face mask” to be worn at the starting line. This mask may be discarded as you cross the start. 

-10 minutes prior to race, head to the start area for instructions and get ready to run! 

·-Unless you are  assigned a table, please do not use any customer tables before race and NO sitting at tables until after you finish the race. Wineries have strict guidelines for table use and we must obey this requirement.

-Time Slot Waves – Grape Gallop bib numbers will correlate with your start time (i.e., if you are registered for the 9 – 9:15am slot your bib number will be 901 to 915.  Corrals will be established so that we can minimize the number of people starting at the same time and help maintain proper social distancing during the race. 

-Face Masks at Starting Line – participants should wear the disposable face mask during announcements and at the start of the race. They may dispose in our drop can when crossing the starting line. 

-Post-race tables and predetermined spaces will be available with 6 foot of clearance between.  These tables and spaces should not be moved. No space should consist of more than 4 people. Everyone should remain seated when possible.

-You are not permitted to mingle with guests at other tables, as you are required to stay seated unless purchasing wine, using a restroom, or leaving the premises. Once a space is claimed, this should remain your spot until you are ready to leave. Sites will need to be sanitized before a new group can occupy. 

-There will be no water supplied on the course. We will provide water bottles at the finish area. Grape Gallop staff will wear gloves and masks and will supply bottled water for participants at beginning and after the race. However, it is recommended that participants bring their own bottle. Water will not be distributed during the race until further notice, so please plan to carry your water during race and carry out.

-Blue Penguin events are chip timed. We will implement a wave start system to keep the participants more separated. Please arrive to the vineyard 20 mins prior to your start time so you can collect your bib and swag. Each wave time slot will have a maximum of 15 participants. 

-Be courteous to other people’s space.
