The Fort Wayne Running Club plans to follow guidance and implement safety measures for the benefit of all participants. The following policies will be in place for this event:
1) The race will be limited to pre-registered runners. We hope you can join us, so sign up soon!
2) The course, which we will publish in the near future, will highlight the beautiful downtown districts.
3) Runners are encouraged but not required to take all necessary safety precautions on their own. Please take the personal precautions you feel are necessary for your own personal safety as we come together as a running community
4) We will have timing mats at the start, so we encourage runners and walkers to self seed based on projected times.
5) We love our volunteers. We will have a water stop along the course and water for you at the finish since July can be hot.
6) All registered runners may need to agree to an updated waiver. Sorry, those legal people want to make sure we run a solid event in all respects. If we need you to sign an updated waiver, we will let you know!
7) We recommend that those feeling sick, ill, with fever or recently having been in contact with anyone unrecovered from COVID-19 not participate.
8) We also recommend that persons from high risk groups consult their physician before participating
We love to see the camaraderie and competition, so we hope you can join us for a stellar Runners on Parade!
