Below you'll find highlighted changes to this year's event, as required by Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County. Please understand that this list is not inclusive and is subject to change. Changes will be posted below and we encourage you to review them prior to participating on race day. 

  • Participants are required to self screen and must be free of symptoms and illness for 14 days prior to the race. Symptomatic participants may not participate. You will be asked covid symptom related questions at packet pick up.
  • There is no race day or paper registration. You must register online by 7:45 am on race day.
  • We strongly encourage you to pick up up your items at the packet pick up noted below. If you're unable to do so, you can pick up beginning at 7:00 am on race day. Whether at packet pickup or in the park on race day, you must wear a mask while in line to pick up your race items and you must maintain six feet physical distance from the person in front of you. 
  • Participants must wear masks until the race actually starts. The mask or face covering must cover your nose, mouth, and chin.
  • Though our physical contact with participants will be minimal, hand sanitizer will be provided at the start and finish line areas.
  • You can begin lining up at 7:45 am for the start at 8:00 am. Please wait in your car until it is time to line up.
  • We will have an area marked with cones, staggered six feet apart. Participants will stand, physically distanced in the park and waiting to enter the start area.
  • Participants are encouraged to maintain a distance of six feet from other participants and to run/walk single file as far right as possible, allowing enough room for others to pass if needed. Thus, running/walking side by side or in groups is highly discouraged.
  • There will be no water stops on the course, so please bring your own water. At the finish line, we'll have bottled water and snacks to take with you.
  • Restrooms may or may not be available in the park. 
  • No spitting, snotting, or projections of any bodily fluid before, during, or after race.

  • Spectators are not permitted on the course, at start line, or finish line. 
  • Please do not congregate after the race. Participants are encouraged to gather their belongings and leave immediately after the race.
  • There will be no post race awards ceremony.
  • Please read and follow all guidelines for this event. We cannot stress this enough. If these guidelines aren't followed, we'll have to stop the race. Additionally, following these guidelines will demonstrate to decision makers that we can continue to have future events.
