What is a hybrid event? Simply put, one that includes both in-person and virtual elements. They range widely, but share some similarities and concerns.
Why include a virtual element even if you have the go-ahead for in person? A few good reasons:
If you're planning to do any sort of modified in-person element, your timer will be key. Make sure you talk through your plan with them thoroughly - and get their advice - before you put it into action. Many timers can also manage your virtual results. Ways of modifying the start to increase social distancing include:
Most races will keep the results separate for in-person and virtual events, especially if awards are offered.
Making it easy for participants to switch between in-person and virtual options (as long as in-person caps allow) gives your participants peace of mind and makes them more likely to register in advance.
Expect late registrations. Runners have always been procrastinators, but that appears to be especially true now.
