Racing with COVID-19
Hey Beer & Bagel fans, we want to get back to racing. Real LIVE racing. In fact, we've been doing it for months, SAFELY. Here’s how we do it:
We have done extra planning in the past few months, adding new protocols such as hand washing, staff screening, touchless serving and more. We continue observing federal, state and local directives, and make adjustments as needed. We ask a little extra of our guests as well. Bring your own water so we can eliminate water stops on the course. Bring a face covering to use at check-in and finish. Stay home if you have had recent exposure to, or symptoms of, COVID-19. We’re all in this together.
Our wide open venues and trails make it easy, even with hundreds of runners. Expect the race to look a little different, with runners starting in small waves. By spreading out start times we can limit the number of people in the chute and on the course at any given time. Throughout the event, we’ll ask that you keep six feet from everybody, at all times, except maybe the run buddy you came with.
After crossing the finish, runners will swing through the post-race area and pick up their finishing swag, a wrapped bagel, and a can of beer or soda. Bottled water will also be available. There will be music and awards, and yes…more beer. You’ll be welcome to stay as long as you are comfortable and can keep safe and proper social distance. Someday soon we will #RunEatParty like old times.
