A packet pick-up & race day informational email was sent out Friday, Oct. 16th, Thursday, Oct. 22nd and there will be one more sent out on Friday, Oct. 23rd. ALL OF THAT SAME INFORMATION IS ALSO ON THIS WEBPAGE! (below the COVID protocol guidelines)
PS….Are you wearing a Halloween costume to this event? MANY WILL…and we encourage it! LET’S HAVE FUN and breakout the COSTUMES!! But by no means are you obligated….many won’t wear one and that’s just fine…either way…the positive vibes will be roll ’in! BELOW IS THE COVID PROTOCOL GUIDELINES FOR THIS EVENT!
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ EVERY PIECE OF INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE COMING ON FRIDAY AND/OR SATURDAY! 🤸🏻♂️
💥#1: REGARDING SPECTATORS💥
DUE TO RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH BY THE STATE & LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WE ARE RESTRICTING THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE AT THIS RACE! THESE ARE RESTRICTIONS THAT WE MUST ABIDE BY. THEREFOR, WE ARE ONLY ALLOWING REGISTERED RUNNERS TO ATTEND THE EVENT.
💥#2: REGARDING YOUR SAFETY AND HAVING THIS EVENT SHOULD THINGS GET WORSE💥
WE WILL NOT HAVE THIS EVENT IF WE DON'T FEEL THAT IT IS A SAFE EVENT FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED IN THE EVENT! If circumstances change for the worse in the next few days, we WILL postpone this event and defer everyone's registration to 2021.
Absolutely everyone at the event will be required to wear a mask at all times EXCEPT WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING. If you don't feel comfortable wearing a mask, please do not come. We do not enjoy wearing masks either...(especially when it's hot) But, during these unprecedented times, we need to deal with it. ALL runners will be able to take their masks off right before starting their run. YOU MUST CARRY YOUR MASK WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES ON THE RUN (WEAR SOMETHING WITH POCKETS)
EVERYONE will need to have their temperature taken BEFORE they step foot onto the event grounds. (Temperatures will be taken by top of the line non-contact, one second Infrared thermometers). If you do not feel comfortable with this, please do not come. Note: Taking one's temperature DOES NOT necessarily indicate a positive or negative. It simply is just one of the many steps that we are taking to eliminate any possible unsafe situation. But please understand that IF your temperature is too high when we check it, we will allow you to rest in your car where it's cooler and try it again. But, if it remains high upon your second check, you will not be allowed on the event grounds. If you see this as a possible problem, please do not come.
WE NEED EVERYONE to consciously pay attention to SOCIAL DISTANCING from the second you step foot onto the venue until the time you leave. THIS VERY IMPORTANT SOCIAL DISTANCING DETAIL IS WHAT WILL MAKE THIS EVENT A SAFE EVENT FOR EVERYONE. The 45 Scoogie Events CREW members and 25+ volunteers will be very busy at their specific detail making sure that they do their job to keep you SAFE. They WILL NOT be checking for social distancing! That is what we would like YOU TO PLEASE DO.

BUCKS COUNTY BREWERY & HEWN SPIRITS
in Pipersville! (20 minutes from The Shoppes at English Village) And that’s JUST THE START of why BOTH events are going to be super fun & festive: 🎃 Every runner that registers in time will get a TOP OF THE LINE LONG SLEEVE TECH TEE (these long sleeve shirts WILL BE YOUR FAVORITES!)
🎃 Every finisher gets a Scoogie designed huge finisher’s medal!

Again, no mailing of awards or shirts. If you have to leave the race early for ANY reason, you must notify us to save your award. If you do not, we cannot hold/store awards and will likely be given to a race day entry or someone else. It is simply too much to hold/store & inventory the awards.
Note: If you are registered for this race and you registered in time to choose a t shirt size BUT you are unable to run for whatever reason, you will NEED TO CONTACT us BEFORE RACE DAY and let us know if you'd like us to hold on to your reserved giveaway (t shirt) for you to pick up at a future Scoogie Event. If you do not do this, we cannot hold your shirt and it will be given to someone that registered after the deadline. We cannot mail shirts.
Can't wait to see everyone on October 23rd or 24th!!!! (You're in for quite a treat)
