Special COVID considerations: We are running the race in a time trial format. We will use your predicted finish time to stagger the starting times for each wave/runner by 15 seconds. As part of registration, you will be asked if you prefer to run with family and friends or by yourself. You will be given a start time between 8:00 am and 9:10 am. You will also be given an arrival time. We are trying to minimize contact by staggering arrival times. We will line up participants on staging circles, six feet apart. When you arrive you will be directed to the staging process. Please wear a mask until your name is called at the start.
