COVID-19 Precautions (Prevention, Distancing & Sanitizing/Cleaning.)
a.  Prevention: 
  i. Participants with COVID symptoms/exposure will be asked not to attend. This is included in the Waiver on Run Signup.
  ii.  Attestation: As part of the sign-in process, runners will be asked to sign a short attestation. A thermometer will be available so they can take their own temperature, if needed in order to truthfully complete the attestation. 
b.  Distancing / Managing Congestion
  i.  Packet Pickup activities (Check-in, Bib-pickup and Swag pickup) will each be at a separate table to reduce congestion in any one area.
    1. Tables will be at least 6 feet apart.
    2.  If registration is more than 50% capacity, pickup will start 15 minutes earlier to reduce congestion.
  ii.  Beverages and food items will each be on a separate table to reduce congestion in any one area. Tables will be at least 6 feet apart.
  iii. Participants will be required to wear masks when not running, and will be discouraged from congregating at the aid station.
  iv. Self-selecting Wave starts: The start will be spread across a 5-minute period. Participants who are not 'competitive' or otherwise do not intend to utilize the entire 6 hours, will be encouraged to start a minute or two later to reduce congestion on the course.
  v.  Safe Passing: Because Hula Loop courses are generally narrower than 12 feet, we will adhere to USATF guidance, which says "competitors should carry face coverings, verbally announce when they are within 10 meters and preparing to pass, and the runner being overtaken should stop and step to the side of the trail and wait for the passing runner to move at least 10 meters ahead.  Both runners should put their face coverings on for this passing procedure, then can remove when completed."
  vi. There will not be an on-site Awards Ceremony, to discourage congregating.
  vii. Participants typically bring chairs or other personal aid station items, such as coolers; they will be encouraged to set up their areas socially distant from one another.
  viii. Spectators and/or crew will be asked to complete the same attestation as the runners. 
   ix. Spectators and/or crew are requested to wear masks when in the aid station area.
c.    On-Site:  Food/Beverage
  i.  Participants will be offered the choice of individually packaged drinks versus self-serve beverage spigot-jugs, depending upon their own comfort level. Spigots on Self-serve jugs will be sanitized frequently
  ii.  All food items will be individually sized and individually packaged.
  iii.  Start/Finish area has plenty of room for participants to set up their own aid stations (with their own food/drink items) if they don’t feel comfortable with the race aid station.
d.  On-Site: Sanitizing/Cleaning
  i.  Masks/gloves:  All race staff/volunteers will wear masks at all times. Aid Station volunteers will wear gloves
  ii.  Hand Sanitizer:  Hand sanitizer will be available on each Aid Station table and in each port-a-pot
  iii.  Hand Washing:  Hand washing station will be provided near the port-a-pots
  iv.  Porta-lets will be cleaned hourly, especially interior and exterior door handles.
