COVID IMPACT AND SAFETY PROCEDURES


In light of Covid-19 we will be following CDC guidelines.  Hand sanitizer available for usage throughout the event including at packet pick-up and near the start and finish areas. The start line and finish line will be in separate locations in order to minimize large group gatherings. We will also have a socially distant start to keep runners that are about to start separate from each other.  All participants are required to bring their own personal hydration system to use during the race. We recommend online registration (paperless).  There will be no medal ceremony after the race.  All finisher medals and awards will be mailed to participants. Participants will be required to wear a mask when not racing. Masks are required in the start area and again in the finish area. All runners are encouraged to wear their masks through the start line and take it off once you are clear of the start area.  Participants are encouraged but not required to wear a mask while racing on the course.  Participants should remain in their cars away from the start/finish area until 15 minutes before start time block and remain socially distant when not in the start corral. If passing any participant on the course, please allow 6-10ft between you and the other participant or pedestrian. There will be a limited number of restrooms available for use at the start/finish area and along the course. We encourage you to use the restroom prior to arriving onsite at the event. Hand sanitizer will be available for use before and after entering the restroom.

COURSE

This outdoor course winds throug 550 acres of nature trails and access roads, all on the grounds of Lacawac Sanctuary.  Be advised that sections of the course are technical, rocky and steep.  No dogs or strollers are allowed on the 8K, but both are welcome on the Woods Walk.

 

HEALTH AND WELLNESS BENEFITS

A systematic review carried out by a team at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry has analyzed existing studies and concluded that there are benefits to mental and physical well-being from taking exercise in the natural environment.  Their findings are published in the research journal Environmental Science and Technology on February 4th, 2011.

The study found that outdoor exercise was associated with greater decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression when compared to indoor activity.  And a 2010 study found that even just five minutes of exercise in a green space can improve modd and self-esteem.
