Due to a seemingly endless number of complications, both directly and indirectly caused by the pandemic, we are only producing one Endless Summer Trail Run Series Race in 2021 – the Spring Lake Park 5 Miler. The race will take place on Wednesday August 4, 2021 at 6:30PM CST. We are thinking of this as a kind of Endless Summer reunion race – it has been too long since we were last together (2019) and we did not want to wait until 2022 to get together again. We think this will be a really special night and hope to see many of you there. We are planning to be back with the full series in 2022. Registration for the Spring Lake Park 5 Miler will open on Thursday July 15 at 9:00 AM CST. Complete event details can be found HERE https://www.estrs.com/slp-5mi/
This race is going to be really similar to ESTRS’s of years past, but a few things should be noted…
• MASS START RACE: So far in 2021, all of our (Rocksteady Running) races have been rolling wave starts. The Spring Lake Park 5 Miler will be a mass start, meaning all participants will line up and start at the same time (6:30PM). There will be ample room to spread out at the start.
• EVENT MODIFICATIONS: Please note, we are NOT going to be serving pizza after this years race, but we WILL be serving pop and beer as normal. There will be no sticker / swag item this year. We will not be doing awards or a raffle.
• COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS: Runners 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 All event activities will be held 100% / completely outdoors. There will be several hand-sanitizing stations available. Touchpoints and surface areas will be routinely cleansed.
