We have created a virtual race option for those who would like to participate but are not local, or do not feel comfortable attending an in-person race at this time. Here's how the virtual race works:
1. Register for the virtual event, and sign up for text or e-mail notifications
2. Your race swag will be available for pickup at our packet pickup, or will be mailed to you.
3. You'll receive a text or email (if you opt in) when the VIRTUAL race "starts" on September 18th.
4. Run your race and submit your results either by text message or email (if you've opted in) or by heading to the results page here by September 26th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time). Results update in real time as people submit their times. Be sure to take a selfie and share on the runsignup.com photo page here.
5. Sit back and enjoy your accomplishment!
Note: Virtual race performances are not eligible for the overall event awards, but we'll certainly be acknowledging the winners in our post-race communication.

COVID-19 Health Security Plan: Creating a safe experience at the 2021 Notre Dame Prep Scholarship Run is our top priority!
Safety of participants, volunteers, sponsors and staff is of utmost importance to Notre Dame Prep and Charm City Run (the race management company). We are committed to following all local, state, national and CDC guidelines at the 2021 Notre Dame Prep Scholarship Run. Charm City Run Events was fortunate enough to safely hold several in-person events in 2020, and has developed efficient and effective race day COVID-19 protocols and procedures. While guidelines and health metrics continue to evolve, we are prepared with procedures that may include, but are not limited to: caps on participation consistent with outdoor gathering guidelines; volunteers and staff at all times (with the exception of when actively participating in the race); minimal spectators; social distancing and small group wave starts for participants; sanitizer stations throughout the event space; elimination of bag check and shirt exchanges; sealed grab-and-go water bottles at water stops; individually wrapped post-race snacks.
As the event draws closer, expect clear and continuous communication via email and website updates on the strategies we’ll use to keep everyone safe. Any questions? Please contact Charm City Run Events at firstname.lastname@example.org.
