Hancock Park Pavilion 
Hancock Park Pavillion Parking lot CLOSES AT 6:30AM and will be closed until 9AM.  This is for the safety of our participants.  If you arrive after 6:30AM, please park in nearby lots along HWY 281 or at the golf course.
The start line wait area will extend onto the golf course.  Please space yourself so that you are distanced from other runners.  This space allows for participants to wait to cross the start line away from crowds. 
We ask that runners cross the start line based on their race day distance. 
We will make the following announcements:  We will ask 10K Participants to approach the start line and cross at 7AM to begin the event.  Runners may distance themselves and their time will not start until they (and their race bib) cross the timing mat/start line.  We will then ask 5K runners to approach the start line area at 7:02AM, followed by the 1 Mile Fun Run participants at 7:04AM.  This procedure will ensure spacing once participants start running. 
We highly encourage participants to stay in their cars until it is their start time.
We discourage spectators for this event since runners travel nationwide to attend this race.  The smaller number of attendees will allow us to maintain social distancing guidelines easier. Only  participants will be allowed in the following areas:  start/finish line, packet-pickup, post race refreshment stations, awards pick up and photo backdrop.
Sanitizing stations will be available once you cross the finish line.  We ask that you properly sanitize your hands before visiting the post race snack tables.   We will offer widely spaced out bananas and bottled water post race.  However, we encourage you to bring your favorite post-race snack to enjoy after you cross the finish line!
Racers tend to want to STOP at the end of a race but we ask that you continue moving to limit pile-ups and gathering in the finish line area.  We will offer free finish photos at the photo backdrop.  Please grab your post race snack/water and visit our photo backdrop to capture race day memories.  Our photographer will be in a marked off area.  Please respect the space and do not cross the boundary.  Photos will be uploaded to Facbook within 48 hours. 
After completing your run and crossing the finish line, you must continue moving towards the exit of the finish area.  Participants will be required to leave the finish line area and proceed immediately to their vehicle as soon as they complete their race.  No congregating of any type will be permitted either before, during, or after the event.
We encourage participants to bring and carry their own water via bottle, hydration belt, or hydration pack.  However, we will provide widely spaced out bottled water at each water stop along the course so that you can grab them without touching additional bottles.  This water will NOT be placed in ice or cold.  We will NOT be providing sports drinks.
A QR code will be posted on race day.  It is also attached here.  When the race is complete, participants can check results on their personal device (phone or computer).  You can also opt in to text/email instant notifications, upon registration.  If you didn't do that at registration, you can go into your Run Sign Up account and add those up until July 10th at midnight.

1 Mile Participant ribbons will NOT be distributed at the finish line.  Your ribbon will be in your race bag and you will receive it at race bag pick up. 
There will NOT be a presentation.  However, winners will receive awards on race day.  Awards will NOT be mailed.   
At 830AM, please pull up the race results on your personal device by using the QR code or visiting by 
Then select "RESULTS" to view your placement.  Results will NOT be printed.  Results will NOT be announced.  
To pick up your award, visit the awards pick up table and give your name, division, race distance and placement.  Afterwards, you may pick up your award.  The volunteer will take note of your pick up.  
Lines will be formed at the award pick up tables so that winners can grab and go.  Sanitizing stations will be available and we ask that you properly sanitize your hands before visiting the awards tables.  
If you are unable to pick up your award on race day, you may pick up your award at the Lampasas Chamber of Commerce beginning July 13th.
