Any racer with a temperature over 100.4 Fahrenheit will be not be allowed to race and will be refunded their race entry fee. Those participating in the relay will be allowed to switch teammates with another existing teammate or a healthy new teammate, or choose to be refunded their race entry fee.

Staggered Starts – The Midway Marathon & Half Marathon and the Valkyrie Relay Trail Run Leg will be organized with staggered starts. Racers will be released in groups small enough and/or spaced apart to reduce crowding on course and at the start. While at the Start and Finish lines, Racers are expected to maintain 6 feet social distancing from other competitors and attendees.

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.
