Race Changes from Normal Race Day:

Important Guidelines!

There will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATIONS/NO EXCEPTIONS. Unfortunately we are trying to limit crowd size and one of the ways to do this is to not have race day registrations.

Face Masks
Please wear a face mask in the registration area, Porta John area and at start line unless you have an underlining medical condition that prevents you from doing so. After you get your packet at registration please social distance elsewhere. We would like to encourage everyone to practice social distancing and keep everyone healthy and safe.

Packet Pick Up,
you will receive a bib and all of your items in a bag. We are not handing medals out at the end of the event like normal. They will be in your goodie bag along with: Shirt, Safety Pins, Sticker, and card that has a QR code for you to check your results within seconds of crossing finish line or the actual website address too.
Results again will be posted directly onto our website at: https://usroadrunning.com/Timing.php We will not have a results television to discourage crowds from forming. If you have a correction please email [email protected]

Water Station
Please be aware that there will only be one water station and it will be self serve with small bottles of water. The water station will be locate at the Shoe House and a volunteer will be placing individual water bottles on the tables. The Finish Line will have a similar set up with individual bottles of water.

Finish Line gathering: We ask that everyone can do their best to not gather in crowds after completing the event.
We hope everyone has a great time while remaining safe! Thanks for being a part of US Road Running!

Practice social distancing at all times! When picking up your packets we are asking participants wear their mask and stand 6ft apart. Porta Johns will be separated by 6ft as well. Please stand 6ft apart while in line too.   We will only have one water station at the Shoe House, however, this is not your typical water station.  We will have 8oz water bottles due to restrictions we must follow and this will be self serve with a volunteer refilling table as needed.  The finish line will also have water bottles we will place on a table and will be self serve. 

We will not have a results television. Instead results can be found with in seconds on https://usroadrunning.net . Medals, shirts, safety pins, and snacks all will be in your goodie bag at registration. We are asking you refrain from gathering in large groups and limit contact with others.  For the race start we are asking that you do not go to the Start Line until 2 mins prior. We again are trying to limit the human to human contact.  

We want everyone to have fun out there, but also keep everyone safe! Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!
