COVID-19 Announcement

March 18, 2020

The Run To The Moon puts runner and volunteer safety first. Facing the threat of COVID-19, the following plan of action has been implemented.

The 2020 race is currently on as scheduled. The Governor of Ohio has issued a Stay At Home order prohibits the event. Our July 18th event is four months away – too far in the future to predict the status of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are in contact with our local health officials to monitor the evolving situation closely. 

If necessary, here are some of the actions the Run To The Moon Red is prepared to take to reduce risk on race weekend:

Runners and volunteers will be instructed how to self-screen and to stay home if they feel ill or have flu-like symptoms.
Water station and finish line volunteers will wear surgical gloves.
Hand sanitizer will be available at all race areas, including packet pickup, start, finishes, and water stops.
Hydration stations may offer individual sized sealed water bottles so volunteers aren’t pouring and handling open cups.
The packet pickup may move outdoors.
Runners who are experiencing illness or flu-like symptoms should stay home. 

If the 2020 Run To The Moon is unable to operate as an actual race, it will not be rescheduled. We have a Virtual Race and runners will still be able to get the really cool shirt and medal.    Please understand that our no refund policy remains in effect. The Run To The Moon has already spent money to purchase items such as shirts, medals, and other services which cannot possibly be absorbed by the event.   We thank you for your support and understanding during this unprecedented public health emergency.
