Coronavirus Precautions

Gov. Wolf announced Friday, June 12, 2020, that Beaver County moved from the yellow into the green phase.” The Ohio River Trail “River Run” Road Race Series still has the green light and we are doing our best to provide an experience as normal as possible for our entrants. The Ohio River Trail Council (ORTC) is following the guidance of local, state, and federal authorities, including the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to implement any necessary plans and protocols to assure the race has the lowest risk feasible. Your safety is paramount and will continue to be our top priority. We are here for you through this challenging situation facing our community. 

The ORTC is taking the following precautionary measures. The 5K and 10K have separate start times. All participants, volunteers, and spectators will have their temperature measured with a non-contact infrared thermometer. We are promoting a healthy social distance of 6-8 feet. In addition, it is recommended to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, to wash or disinfect your hands frequently, and too not hug or shake hands with other competitors or spectators. 

All participants are required to wear a mask at the starting line and during the first one-half mile until reaching the minimum six-foot social distance. Masks are required to be worn before, after the race, and especially at the registration desk and awards ceremony. Purell or Germ-X hand disinfection stations are available at registration and the finish line festival. Staff who are in close contact with the athletes will be wearing gloves. In addition, the staff is designated to wipe down surfaces throughout the event while donning gloves.

The risks of virus transmissibility in the air outdoors are likely quite low. There is no evidence that you can contract COVID-19 from a perspiring runner, as sweat does not transmit the coronavirus. Even though the increased airflow outside reduces the risk of one person transmitting the virus to another through airborne particles, we do recommend that you run your free lane and maintain social distance to minimize exposure to any respiratory droplets. Allow for greater spacing if traveling right in front of or right behind another person.
