Face Masks – before competing and once a leg is complete, all racers are required to don masks before exiting the transition or finish area. Disposable masks may be discarded at any aid station. All race staff, volunteers and contractors will be required to wear face masks and gloves (where applicable).

Aid Stations – Hand sanitizer and trash receptacles are available at all aid stations. Volunteers will not be able to hand water or nutrition directly to racers. Water and food will be placed on aid station table spaced in a way that will avoid unnecessary contact with other racers.Aid Stations – Hand sanitizer and trash receptacles are available at all aid stations.  Volunteers will not be able to hand water or nutrition directly to racers.
