With the approval of the Franklin County Health Department, our last virtual race of the season will have an in-person option!  Come out to see your friends and collect that awesome medal at the finish line!

While we are PUMPED to see you all, the run will come with precautions to keep everyone safe.  Members who choose to run in person will be assigned a start time and released in groups of 5 people with like pace goals.  You will be asked to run either with your assigned group or alone and will be asked to limit contact with other groups. The goal is to limit exposure while bringing our running community together for one last run of the season.

You do NOT need to run in person to be able to submit times! If you choose to participate virtually, you will upload your times as normal and be eligible for prizes as normal!

  • You have the option to run virtually or in person.  Choose your location at registration.
  • The run is for current CERC members ONLY.
  • You MUST register by October 13 for the in-person run.  ABSOLUTELY NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION will be accepted!
  • You will be notified after October 13 with your start time. The first group will start at 7:30 and we will release groups every 3-5 minutes.
  • On race day, you will be asked to wear a mask before the race and after you cross the finish line.
  • Upon arrival, please stay in your car until 10 minutes before your assigned start time.  At that time, you will proceed to check-in with a volunteer and then be sent to the start line.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that we limit the number of people that are congregating in the parking lot.
  • BE ON TIME!  It is very important that we send everyone out as scheduled.  If you miss your start time, we may not be able to put you in another group.
  • St Charles’ facilities will NOT be open!  Please prepare accordingly as there will be no restrooms available for your use.
  • During the race, you have the option to stay with your assigned group of 5 or to run alone.  Please do not join another group!
  • We are NOT timing this run.  You will be responsible to track your time on your watch just as you would in all other virtual races.  You will need to enter your finish time on RunSignuUp to be eligible for the door prizes.
  • The trail will NOT be closed to the public, so please be courteous to all you encounter.  Give space or put your mask back on until you are past someone.
  • You will be crossing roads and will need to abide by all traffic laws (sorry but you may need to stop during your race).
  • BRING YOUR OWN fluids!  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide water stops at this time.
  • At the finish line, collect your medal and kudos from your awesome CERC volunteers and then proceed to your car.
  • Please contact Coach Charlie at cerc.coaching@gmail.com for special requests or accommodations. We will try our best but no guarantees. 

While this isn’t the fun race day and CERC runs that we are used to, we hope to provide you all with an environment where everyone feels safe!  Join us to share some cheers and smiles as we wrap up our final run of the season!
