Race Package Pickup

We are staging race package pick-up according to your race distance.  Please do not arrive before your scheduled pick-up time.  Participants must wear a mask and line up 2m apart during package pick-up.  Before receiving your timing chip and race bib number from our team (who will wear masks & gloves) participants will be questioned as follows:

Pre-Screening Questionnaire

(Questions 1 – 4 NO, 5 YES required for participation) to be answered upon arrival.

  1. Have you traveled outside of the country in the past 14 days?
  2. Have you tested positive for COVID – 19. (if yes in the past 14 days, no participation)
  3. Do you have any symptoms: cough, fever, sore throat, difficulty breathing not related to a pre-existing condition?
  4. Have you knowingly been in contact with an individual who has tested positive in the last 14 days
  5. Have you read the athlete race day information in its entirety?

Race Start

  • Racers will line up every 2m (at flags) and individually released every 5 seconds in a time-trial format.  Keep moving up the line until you’re the next to go.
  • Your start time is automatically triggered when you cross the start line.
  • Although cohorts will be allowed to start and race in a group, side-by-side running is not allowed.  We want to leave plenty of room for others to pass.

Passing Protocols

  • Athletes will be instructed to maintain physical distance of 2m through the race.
  • Passing is permitted when there is nobody coming the other way.  Call out “passing on your left” and allow 2m.
  • The runner being passed must fall back to maintain 2m distance from the runner in front.

Aid Stations

  • Water cups will be filled and waiting on the aid station tables.
  • Honey Stinger gels will be placed on aid station tables.
  • Porta Potties will be stocked with hand sanitizer.

Finish Line

  • Athletes will be encouraged not to directly follow another athlete into the finish area and to always maintain 2m of physical distance.
  • We have a wide finish chute with two lanes.  Pick a side and keep moving forward.
  • Take off your timing chip and drop it in one of our bins.


  • Water and Honey Stinger snacks will be available at the finish. 
  • After the race, runners can gather in small, distanced groups away from the finish area for up to 15 minutes.  Savour the moment and then please find your way home.
  • Top Male/Female in each event win a free entry to the next race!  Winners will receive an email after the race.
