COVID-19 Agreement for Participants

As a participant in the Germantown 5 Miler, you agree to the following policies and procedures - they are necessary to ensure the health and safety of participants, volunteers and everyone in our community. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation with these new procedures.

1. If you are not feeling well on the day of the race or have not felt well within the two weeks prior to the race, please stay home.  You can find information about the symptoms of COVID-19 and the risks to yourself and your community here.

2. Please ALWAYS maintain social distance (at least 6 feet) from all individuals not in your immediate household.

3. Masks, properly fitted to cover both the nose and mouth, are required to be worn at all times except during the actual race.  You may remove your mask after crossing the start line while maintaining social distance along the race route.  Please place your mask back over your mouth and nose when passing another runner or a volunteer and please always pass on the left.  Masks must also be put back on BEFORE crossing the finish line.

4. Participants will start the race in socially distant groups, which will be pre-selected during registration.  All participants must start in the group selected and changes cannot be made.  If necessary, the Race Director may adjust the starting groups to ensure the safety of all participants.

7. Water and port-o-johns will not be available during the race.  There are park bathrooms available prior to and after the race. Participants are encouraged to carry handheld water bottles or fuel belts filled at home before departing for the race, if desired.

8. Post-race refreshments will be available but bagged and you take them with you. Participants must proceed to their vehicles immediately upon finishing and prepare to depart the race. No congregating in the finish area after the race is permitted.  Participants should remain at their vehicle until they feel they are safe to drive.

9. Due to gathering limitations, this event is limited to registered participants and registered volunteers ONLY.  We are unable to welcome spectators, family members, friends, crew, pacers, unofficial aid stations, etc.
