           a.       200 for half marathon participants

            b.       100 for full marathon participants

2.       Participants will receive a neck gaiter in their race swag and will be encouraged to wear this during all pre-race and post-race activities.

3.       Hand sanitation stations will be available throughout the event – packet pick up, start/finish line, and aid stations.

4.       The race start will be a rolling start.  Every 2 minutes beginning at 7:30AM 25 runners will be allowed to start the race.  

           a.       This will be managed via a “corral” area at the start line.

           b.       This will allow for friends to run together if they choose.

           c.       This will allow for ample spacing for runners to social distance.

5.       Aid Stations

          a.       Volunteers will be provided neck gaiters as well and the water will be poured into cups but participants will have to grab their own cup from the table.  

          b.       Portable restrooms will be cleaned between uses and will be increased in quantity at the more heavily utilized locations.

6.       Finisher medals will be on a table for participants to pick up on their own as they catch their breath after crossing the finish.

7.       Post-Race food and beverage will all be individually packaged and/or serve yourself items.

 

The TCM planning committee encourages friends and family and other participants to cheer on participants from an acceptable social distance.  We ask spectators to bring your own seating – chairs, blankets. The Ike Hamilton Expo is a large venue with large parking lots and ample space to spread out but also make an impact as participants finish their race.
