Covid19 Safety Measures

We are excited to be planning the 2021 Queen of Prussia 5K/10K presented by Main Line Health as an in-person event. We have been working on updating race protocols for the current environment. We will be enforcing CDC Covid19 Safety Guidelines and Protocols during race week and on race day.
