Racing Pledge


We believe that each RunSedona Event athlete should play a role in keeping other athletes, volunteers, staff, and spectators safe at the races.  There are four pillars that should guide athlete behavior:

  • Athlete responsibility
  • Respect for other athletes, volunteers, staff and spectators
  • Athlete self-reliance
  • Observing rules of the road/athlete etiquette

As an athlete looking out for my safety and the safety of others, I will:

Be Responsible

  • Stay home if I am sick or have been in contact with someone that is sick.
  • Be Alert! Read all event communication and signage, as it could contain important information on any new related procedures and policies. Follow safety instructions of race announcers and race officials.
  • Respect physical distancing and look for any visual cues like tape, signage, and chalk that mark where I should stand, and how far apart I should be from others.
  • Utilize proper health and hygiene methods for mask wearing, hand washing, hand sanitizing, sneezing, and coughing.
  • Show-up on time or at my assigned time for activities such as athlete check-in, bike and gear check-in, and distance start.

Respect Others

  • Avoid spitting or expelling any other bodily fluids near other athletes, volunteers, staff or spectators.  
  • Give myself and others space! 
  • Let others know when passing. I will verbalize my intention to pass if it is safe to do so.

Be Self-Reliant

  • Keep my distance. Give my fellow athletes plenty of space at all times.
  • Utilize aid stations only when necessary – Touch only what I need and minimize touchpoints and interaction with volunteers and other athletes.
  • Carry my own fluids and nutrition by using my bike technology, hydration pack, race belt, or race vest.
  • Minimize my reliance on volunteer assistance in transition zones.
  • Encourage friends and family to spectate safely in low-density zones, observe physical distancing and to stay home if they are sick or feeling unwell.

Observe Athlete Etiquette 

  • Thank the volunteers! They are out here to help me achieve my dreams.
  • Consider the safety of others. I will adhere to best practices to protect others.
  • Respect the host community. I am their guest during race days and I will act like it.
  • Pay attention to instructions from race officials and City officials. 
  • Let faster athletes pass me.
  • Celebrate with others in a no-touch manner.
