It's a Stafford Christmas tradition!  Run with us on December 12th on a NEW 3 mile course along the rolling hills of Mine Road (note: we said rolling, as in gently rolling...NO Halloween Hill.  You're welcome.).  Kids 12 and under can join the fun in the Reindeer Run!  Dressing up is always encouraged - we've seen Santas, Olafs, reindeer, snowmen, and tutus!  

We have added a virtual option for athletes who would prefer to participate virtually.  Online registration for the virtual races will close at 11:59pm on November 25th in order to guarantee t-shirts for virtual participants.  

This is the 4th race in the Stafford Race Series.

1.  Packet pick-up will be held in the cafe area in the Jeff Rouse Swim and Sport Center from 9am-10:15am race morning.  Please wear your mask when you are in the building.

2. Restrooms are located in the JRSSC as well as near Mine Road near the soccer fields.  Please wear a mask when you are in either area. 

3. All runners are required to wear masks/face covering pre-and post race, but not in the starting corral, during the race, or warming up and cooling down. Race staff and volunteers will be wearing masks or face coverings.

4. No water will be supplied on the course - runners need to BYOW (Bring your own water). 

5. Waves may be assigned and runners will be asked to stand on marked spots at 10 ft. spacing in the starting corral.

6. Anyone who does not feel comfortable getting in to the starting grid with their wave will have up to 2 minutes to start themselves after the rest of the runners have cleared out from their assigned wave.

7. After you finish, a water bottle and banana will be in an individually packed plastic bag past the finish line for you to grab and go post-race.

8. Runners are encouraged to leave finish area ASAP - results will be posted online and awards will be mailed to the winners.

9. No spectators will be permitted near the start/finish line as we need to adhere to the 250 person gathering limit under Phase 3.  Spectators are permitted on the course, but we ask that they maintain social distancing from the athletes.
