Covid-19: Per the Center for Disease Control outdoor events are extremely safe. When you're outside, fresh air is constantly moving, dispersing covid-19 droplets. So it is unlikely to breathe in enough of the respiratory droplets containing the virus that causes COVID-19 to become infected. Being outside offers significant benefits, too. It offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed. We will ensure additional safety to our staff & participants by spacing out the start times, having hand sanitizer readily available, no water stations on course, and more.
