Keira Henninger presents the 19th race in the “Running is not closed” race series!
This fun run is limited to just 30 participants with staggered starts so we are practicing social distancing at the start line.
Distances to choose from are 50k & 30k. All runs will be held on legally open trails
. Each distance will be an out and back. It will be marked exceptionally well.
. Each run will offer a beautiful finisher medal handmade in the USA, and an awesome finishers shirt made in the USA
. Each individual run will have precise results that will be loaded to ultrasignup the same day as the fun run
. These fun runs can be ran as competitive as you want. If you choose to run it fast then feel free to! Your finish time will be recorded 100% accurately from the time you start to the time you finish.
. Each distance will have two wave starts so as to not ever have a group of more than 10 people together in one spot
. When you finish your run you will collect your finisher medal, shirt, and cold bottled water (which will be sanitized/wiped and in a sanitized/wiped gallon ziplock bag). Results will be posted that day on ultrasignup. These runs are limited to CA residents
AID STATIONS: For each distance you will have aid stations along your routes that you will hit on your “out and back” courses. These aid stations will be zero contact aid stations. Runners are not be allowed under any circumstances to touch anything. You must enter the minimal aid station, open your own pack or bottle, and the volunteer will pour water or electrolyte for you while the volunteer wears gloves. This volunteer will put on a clean pair of gloves every 20 mins. There will be no opened food or cups.
Aid stations will have: Water, Fluid electrolyte, GU gels, Spring energy gels, packaged chips, and ice. Ice will only be touched by the volunteer using a scooper. This scooper will be replaced with a clean scooper every half hour. These aid stations will be incredibly minimal and follow all safety and sanitary rules.
The route is an out and back, and ran 100% on trails. The 50k will have three aid stations total. One of which will be hit twice. The 30k will have one aid station. Only 50k runners may have drop bags.
PLEASE READ: These runs are low key grassroots events that are meant to be fun. Running in the fresh air on trails is the best medicine for all of life’s stressors, and we want to give you that gift. These races are inexpensive, and just meant to be a fun way to legally and safely get back out on the trails again together.
