Q:  Are spectators allowed in 2020?
A:  Yes.  Kensington Metropark is a big, public park.  There will be others using the park during the race.  There will also be others on the hike/bike path during the event.  We ask all spectators to follow the COVID-19 protocols and respect social distancing as well as adhere to all guidelines set forth by the governments (federal, state, and local).  Please ask spectators to be courteous of start/finish line personnel and ask that they don't hover around the finish line waiting for you to finish.  We are making every attempt to make the start/finish line as socially distances as possible.  Not exactly the lines of cheering people that some would like but the necessary environment to safely compete.
