October 3-4, 2020 - Whitefish Legacy Partners is excited to introduce a weekend of running events on the Whitefish Trail!
Saturday's 50k Mountain Ultra, presented by Whitefish Credit Union, will start in Depot Park at the Great Northwest Oktoberfest, climb to the summit of Big Mountain via the Whitefish Trail in Haskill, and finish back at the Beirgarten in downtown Whitefish! Registration will be capped at 400 runners for the 50k Mountain Ultra.
Sunday's Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and family-fun run, presented by Whitefish Therapy and Sport Center, will explore the Whitefish Trail in Beaver Lakes, starting and ending at the Whitefish Bike Retreat. The event is also made possible by event sponsor Hammer Nutrition. There is no cap for the Half Marathon, 10k+, 5k+, or Family Fun Run.
The COVID19 pandemic has caused us to develop an implementation plan to help decrease the spread of the virus for race participants, volunteers, and the community of Whitefish, MT. We will take steps to reduce crowding and congestion, and the proposed health plan for the event will be reviewed and approved by Flathead County Health Department in hopes of ensuring the health and safety of participants and volunteers.
A final decision regarding the race and possible cancellation will be made on or before September 1st based on guidance from Flathead County Health Department and the Montana Governor’s Office.
Covid-19 Cancellation/Refund Policy: In the event that Whitefish Legacy Partners cancels the Legacy Run due to the Covid-19 pandemic, registered runners will have the option to receive either 50% refund or registration deferment to 2021.
Some changes to the race that we are considering in order to reduce congestion and crowding at the start/finish, at aid-stations, and on the trail:
Additional guidelines and/or protocols may be added prior to race day. We will communicate via email and on our Facebook page.
If anyone has any COVID19 related symptoms please stay home: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html).
Pre and Post Race – Whitefish, MT
All visitors and spectators (including runners, crew, runner family and friends) should wear face coverings and maintain social distancing while in public places in Whitefish, MT.
All spectators and runners must wear face covering at the start lines. Race start times may be changed in order to spread out runners on the course. Final start times will be communicated to runners via email and at packet pick up.
On the Trail
NOTE ON FACE COVERINGS: buff/neck gaiter-like coverings would be ideal for runners during the race because when not being used, they can hang around necks or around wrists for easy access. Face coverings do not need to be medical type coverings; cloth ones are recommended for runners.
From the CDC: “CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations.” Click here for the CDC information on cloth face coverings.
