RunGSP is excited to return to racing! We've spent months researching what industry leaders are implementing and developing our own Covid-19 protocols that reflect the most current information available. A few noticeable additions you'll find on site are:
  1. Reduced participant density at the start line
  2. Physical barriers between volunteers and participants
  3. Sanitation stations throughout common areas

Features include The Watershed Amphitheater, The Carolina Panthers Play60 Challenge Course, and The brand new Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park. This space will serve as "home base" for us on race morning, providing a safe, open air environment to congregate.
