PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE COVID-19 INFORMATION/DISCLAIMER IF YOU CHOOSE THE IN PERSON COMPONENT:
We are happy to report Gulf Coast Runners has been given permission by the city of Naples to stage the Thanksgiving 5K Race from Cambier Park in downtown Naples on Thursday, November 26th, 2020. As always, it is our intent to provide you with a safe environment from packet pickup all the way to the finish line and all points in between. While we can do our very best to ensure your safety it requires that we ALL practice the best safety measures which includes safe social distancing at all times and wearing a face mask before and after the race. All volunteers will be wearing masks and we will have hand sanitizer located around the park. We ask that all spectators wear a mask, as well.
In order to properly manage the complexities of this unprecedented GCR event we are limiting the field to 500 runners. This will ensure not only safe social distancing but also a time sensitive staggered start whereby 5 racers will toe the line every 10 seconds. There will be marks on the road where each wave of runners will stand as they approach the start line on 5th Ave. South.
In your race registration we will ask you for your anticipated finish time. This will allow us to determine your start time (between 7-7:15am) and prevent overlapping of runners on the race course, i.e. those with faster finish times will start before those with slower finish times.
***There will be no race day registration. Packet pickup will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, 11/24-11/25/20 at On the Run from 10am-6pm or on race day morning from 6:00am -6:45am. You may request curbside packet pickup by calling 239-434-9786 or coming into the store with your mask on.
While there will be no water/hydration station on the race course, we will have bottled water at the finish line - no post race food. You may bring your own hydration and nutrition, as well.
We look forward to providing you with a fun and safe race on Thursday, November 26th. Should you have questions please contact Mitch Norgart at firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate your support of Gulf Coast Runners!
