How are we guaranteeing a safe and socially distanced event?

We have been testing social distancing at several events so far and have had great success by implementing:

  • Extended Packet Pickup Hours (3 Day packet pickup and group pickup options)
  • Contactless Packet Pickup

  • Time trial starts from 8am-11am (race will not start as a group, your chip time starts when you start the race)
  • One way flow of traffic at all times (registration, bib pickup, start/finish line separated, etc.)

  • Open Area - start line and race staging will be spread out to maximize social distancing
  • Results - posted online only, all participants receive finisher medals (no age group ceremony)

  • Post Race Party - beer tickets are good from 12/28 - 1/2 to reduce group size at the Brewery on race day
  • Announcer will encourage participants to wear masks and follow CDC social distancing guidelines

  • Additional Hand Sanitizer stations at registration and restrooms
  • FREE SHIPPING to participants if they prefer to participate in the race virtually rather than in person

Race Swag

All Participants Receive:
  • Long Sleeve T-Shirt (with your 2021 Goal)
  • Custom Race Bib (with your 2021 Goal)
  • Finisher Medal
  • Chip Timed Race
  • Pint of Church Street Beer
