SATURDAY September 11th, 2021
TWO options– Our Virtual run or our LIVE 5km run at the runway, with start times throughout the day on Saturday September 11th to accommodate physical distancing.
To accommodate physical distancing, our race will once again be held on a Saturday – start times will be assigned based on your needs. If you have a group of people, family, friends or co workers that you are socializing with we can sign you up for the same start time.
Our no risk registration includes the ability to change your registration to:
- Participate in our virtual 5km event
- Donate your registration fee for a tax receipt
- Postpone your registration to 2022
Cleaning & Sanitization
Additional cleaning and sanitization of Participant touch-points throughout the area, including check-in areas, toilets, shirt collection, and at aid stations.
Hand sanitizer will be available for use throughout the event including around high traffic areas, such as in and around portable toilets. These will be refreshed by staff throughout the day.
You will need to bring your own water, water bottle, or hydration belt for on the course. Sealed water bottles will be available at the end of the race. Additional refreshments will not be provided.
Staff & Volunteer Procedures
Increased safety and hygiene procedures for staff and volunteers including regular hand sanitization, facemasks or neck buffs.
Personal Protective Equipment
For the foreseeable future, all event staff and volunteers will wear face coverings at all times. Attendees will be expected to follow local guidelines and requirements regarding the use of face coverings and will be informed of those guidelines prior to their race via email.
Transparent plastic shields may be installed at key interaction points, such as participant check-in, to create separation between both participants and staff.
Start & Departure Times
To manage the volume of participants onsite, each participant will be given a specific arrival and departure time for entry and exit from the event to ensure total participant numbers at any one time are kept under strict control. If you are running with a group of 10 or less you will all be given the same times.
Participant throughput will be monitored to ensure the number of people within the event space is kept to acceptable levels at all times.
Heat sizes will be small. The wide runway course allows for lots of safe spacing while running/walking/rolling or poling.
Lanes & Markers
Dedicated lanes, along with designated waiting spots, will be provided at areas where participants tend to congregate, including at check-in and finish area. Where lines are formed, distancing markers will be used to ensure safe distancing.
Check in questionnaire
Passive screening will be used at check in
Including questions about your travel and current health. We will also email you a screening prior to the race of things to consider, if you are displaying any symptoms of Co-Vid 19 or are not felling well on race day we ask you to stay home and take advantage of our no risk registration policy!
There will be no on-site registration permitted. Registration and payment must be made online prior to race day.
There will be no shorter Kiddie Trott this year. You will have the option to register for a Virtual Run (complete on your own and still receive our exclusive buff). You will be given an arrival time to allow for physical distancing, and runners will line up and start in heats that are distanced.
