We would like to thank the town of New Canaan and its Recreation Department for allowing us to conduct this long-running summer racing tradition in these unusual times. Please note that it took an extreme effort to develop this protocol and get it approved, and we are able to conduct the Series only by utilizing these procedures. Failure to comply with them could result in the remaining races in the Series being cancelled, as well as damaging the possibility of other running events being granted permission in the future. Let's show town officials and outside observers that runners care as much for everyone else's health as we do about our own!
