Covid Protocol and Event Modifications:
• Runners, spectators, volunteers and staff are required to stay home if they are Covid positive, have been exposed to someone that is Covid positive in the past 14 days, are not feeling well or are experiencing any of the symptoms listed HERE https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

• 100% of event activities are OUTSIDE. There is tons of room to spread out at the (mass start) start line and around the finish. There will be multiple hand-sanitizing stations around the event site.

• We will not have pizza after this year’s race, but we will be serving beer, soda and some freezies.

There is more than enough parking on site. Those arriving late, be prepared for a 5+ minute walk. Parking volunteers will direct you as soon as you enter the park. A detailed map showing available parking can be found HERE https://www.estrs.com/wp-content/uploads/ESTRS-Spring-Lake-Park-5-Mile-Course-Map-7-29-2019-400PM.jpg

* We understand that work days can be a little hectic, if you arrive after the start of the race you will not be able to pick up your number / officially start the race, however, you are welcome to get your swag item, go out for a run on your own and join us after.

NO Race Day Registration:
Please note that we do not offer race day registration.

Bring ID:
Be sure to bring your ID when you check in / pick up your race number and chip if you care to have a beer after – you will be issued a wristband at this time – you can also bring your ID later but before is preferred.

Chip Timing:
We will be chip-timing this race, your chip will be affixed to your race bib / number, please do not bend or fold your race number / timing chip.

Results will be posted live / in real time HERE https://results.chronotrack.com/event/results/event/event-62582

Weather, Heat & Thunderstorms:
It’s Summer, it can be hot. Be sure to carry water if you feel you will need it, for races over 5KM we will have a water stop around the halfway point. We expect that you will use your personal judgment in deciding if it is too hot for you to run. The race will be held rain or shine – however, severe weather is a different story. To date we have never called off a race early / in advance due to the potential for severe weather – hopefully, the worst case scenario would be a delay in the start time once unsafe weather conditions have passed. If severe weather were to persist after a reasonable amount of time we would call off the event.
