Course: See map link for course map.
RUNNERS: We wont mandate that runners wear a mask for any times while running, walking to start line chute or walking back to team area from finish line. During times of stationary activities though, it is imperative that you and your team wear your facial coverings to prevent the possible transmission of COVID-19.
SPECTATORS, COACHES, RACE OFFICIALS: All must be diligent of wearing their facial covering during the duration of this event.
Team Tent Area
The starting line is to the west of the main entrance and parking lot. Teams can put their team tents behind the start line or on the hill adjacent to the starting line. As long as each tent and team is a minimum of roughly 100 feet of one another and other spectator frequently traveled areas, it wont matter where you set up because the venue is so vast.
Once all the teams are registered, I will assign each team a team box.
These will be more like starting chutes. Each team will have their own box and plenty of room to spread out within their box. There will be 6' spacing between a team box and the next box that is occupied by a team.
We are not requiring that athletes wear a mask during the warmup and around the starting area, but we are asking that they stay with their team and go through the pre-race preparations with their team. The layout and spacing will easily allow for the necessary distance and therefore a mask will not be necessary.
Timing: Solid Rock Race Timing Co.
Eddie Mason, the head timer will be using disposable chips so the athletes will pass through the finish line and keep going. There will be no need to stop and bunch up around the finish line area.
Finish Line Refreshments
We will have donated bottled waters at the finish line.
We will park buses in the gravel parking lot just below the spectator parking lot directly near the start line.
Additional parking can be found near the sand volleyball courts as well.
Please communicate with your parents that they MUST wear a facial covering and encourage them to spread out along the course and make this a great racing environment. We would prefer that they don't bunch up around the starting and finishing area. The course is wide open and spectator friendly. Please encourage them to spread out and cheer their team on throughout the course.
Restrooms: There will be bathroom access near the start line and at the sand volleyball complex.
Parking fee: $TBA
Please let me know if I have forgotten something.
I will keep the communication open and fluid leading up to the meet using email.
